Two hundred vineyards and some 100 wineries are scattered throughout Yamhill County, making McMinnville the center of Oregon's wine country. Many are open for tours and tastings.
Along with its more glamorous reputation as a wine-producing center, McMinnville is the home of Linfield College, established in 1858. Points of interest on the 193-acre campus include the Linfield Gallery, a theater and a library. Fort Yamhill Blockhouse, dating from 1855, is in nearby Dayton.
