Wineries on the Oregon Coast

So you are heading to the Oregon Coast for a day trip and you are wondering what wineries you can visit while there. I’ve got you! I have put together a great list of quite a few wineries that will each be the perfect place for you to have a wonderful Oregon Coast Wine Experience. Oregon in general is known for its excellent wines so you know that when you combine great wines with great views, you are bound to have a great day!

I happen to be a wine lover, but my husband isn’t necessarily the same so when we visit wineries, we like to make sure we visit ones that offer other things to do such as listen to live music or we like to make sure that there is plenty to do nearby so that we both have a great time. While we tend to visit the coast year round, most of our winery visits are during the warmer months so that we can explore all that the Oregon Coast has to offer, and the best time to do that is when the weather is milder. 

Wineries on the Oregon Coast

The Oregon Coast isn’t typically synonymous with vineyards, but it is home to some great Oregon wineries. If you are up for a beautiful drive up through one of the greatest highways in the country, a highway 101 road trip will provide a wonderful activity to center your weekend around!

Depoe Bay Winery

Depoe Bay Winery has been open for a quarter century and is known for being one of the only tasting rooms in the world where you can regularly see whales! Just imagine enjoying your glasses of wine while sneaking a peek at some of nature’s most significant animals. This winery is run by 3 generations of Oregonians who have developed a wonderful skill for wine crafting! A visit to this winery is a very fun way to spend your time at the Oregon Coast. This is actually the winery’s second location. 

​If you are new to the Oregon Coast, Depoe Bay is located about 20 minutes south of Lincoln City on the central Oregon coast. 

Nehalem Bay Winery

Nehalem Bay Winery is celebrating 50 years open as of this year (2024) and while it may not be the oldest winery, is one of the ten oldest wineries in the state. They offer delicious wines made from world class fruit from within the Willamette Valley.  Their tasting room hours are every day from 10-5.

​Nehalem is located on the Northern Oregon Coast south of Cannon Beach. 

Flying Dutchman Winery

Located in Otter Rock, the Flying Dutchman Winery is a lovely boutique winery that is popular with tourists because of its unique location and the high quality wines it produces. The location on this winery is simply priceless, situated on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I find it to be one of the most wonderful wineries in the area. 

Otter Rock is located north of Newport.  

​Shallon Winery

Shallon Winery is perhaps one of the most unique wineries in the state, let alone the coast. This winery has been a one-man operation for the last 30 years. Located in Astoria, this winery is located in a historic building that has been the site of an automotive showroom, a freezer/locker, a bike shop and then it began its life as a winery facility in 1977. The winery tasting room looks over the Columbia River. 

There you have it! Some beautiful wineries to visit along what many argue is the world’s most beautiful coastline. Put those cell phones down, take in the views, and enjoy a quaint Oregon coast town and some beautiful and unique wineries along the way!
