Willamette Valley's mild growing seasons and array of volcanic soils and ancient seabeds make it an ideal spot for Pinot Noir. Finding one of today's picks shouldn't be a challenged, as they're mostly made in sizable volumes. While Oregon Pinot can have a relatively high average price-point, there is solid value here, with all clocking in at $36 or less.
