Welcome to Carlton: Oregon's Wine Country Capital!

Whether you come to explore its dozens of small wineries, picturesque vine-covered hills or charming historic downtown, Carlton is on the “must do” list of visitors to Oregon wine country. Known for a downtown that boasts nearly two dozen wine tasting rooms, Carlton is also home base for the globally respected Yamhill-Carlton American Viticultural Area.  In short, Carlton is “Pinot Paradise.”

Carlton, only three short blocks in length, manages to pack in more gastronomy, wineology and hospitality than most cities ten times its size. Organic cheeses, fresh meats, piquant preserves, creative desserts, and artisan chocolates are all available right on Main. Once a rough-and-tumble logging town, Carlton is now the small but significant epicenter of the North Willamette Valley’s farm and wine scene.
