About the Inn
A Willamette Valley Destination
Located in the Dundee Hills AVA in Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine region, Black Walnut Inn & Vineyard has been welcoming guests to our estate for over 13 years. The estate—not a hotel, and not your ordinary bed and breakfast—is reminiscent of a European villa.
Set in the upper regions of the family’s 42-acre property, this wine country “place to stay” has been carefully designed by the owners with your comfort in mind. The Utz family, world travelers themselves, have instilled their eclectic personal style at the heart of the experience you will have when you visit the Black Walnut Inn, located between Newberg and McMinnville in Oregon's wine country.
Nine Black Walnut Inn & Vineyard unique and inviting suites await your choice when you visit, each designed with a touch of European elegance paired with downright comfort. Luxurious linens, soaking tubs, king temperpedic beds, and breath-taking views are just a few of the comforts you’ll enjoy during your visit.
The staff takes great pride in helping you enjoy the authentic secret “hidden gems” of Yamhill County such as Alexana Winery, Jake Price's Equestrian Wine Tours, local farmer’s markets, or Mark Delong’s Walking Wine Tours. Whether it is that elusive Pinot noir, the best local sustainable farm for produce, or where to hike or ride your bike, we can help you with your explorations.
If you’re looking for that adventurcation, the inn’s location in the Dundee Hills AVA, 2.8 miles off Hwy. 99W between Newberg and McMinnville, allows for the flexibility of day tripping to three of Oregon’s 7 Wonders, the Oregon coast, the Columbia Gorge, and Mount Hood. Portland is just a forty-five minute drive. And the greatest thing of all: guests can explore the wineries and tasting rooms of the over 100 wineries within a 20-minute drive of the inn right here in Willamette Valley wine country.
Our central location in the Dundee Hills AVA offers easy access to numerous world-class wineries such as Argyle, Rocco, Lange, Domaine Drouhin, and Winderlea and also a wide range of activities including Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, Vista Balloons, and Pedal Bike Tours. But don't forget, our private and comfortable setting gives you the chance to escape and rejuvenate. We hope to see you soon at the Black Walnut Inn & Vineyard, your luxurious and affordable place to stay in Oregon's Wine Country.
