Dundee is a tiny pass through town just outside of Newberg with about 3K residents. Due to proximity, the city of Newberg supports Dundee’s infrastructure by joining forces. They combine community services like their Police bureau, School District, Utility services and Post Office, to name a few.
Dundee is one of those cute little towns you can’t help but stop and enjoy as you’re driving through. It’s located only 30 minutes southwest of Portland but makes you feel like you’ve entered a small Tuscan village. Placed atop a hillside Dundee overlooks layers upon layers of rolling vineyards, vistas and views of the iconic Mt. Hood. The wineries here are award winning and belong on any Willamette Valley wine tour. There is nothing like sipping a glass of Oregon pinot noir while gazing into the very vineyard that grew it.
This little community has used these skills to boost the town’s economy and draw in visitors from near and far. The main street that runs through Dundee has an abundance of highly rated restaurants, tasting rooms, eclectic shopping and quaint bed and breakfasts. These coupled with some down home hospitality are what really make people fall in love, and what keeps them coming back.
Although Dundee is a famous wine town, it hasn’t strayed away from its authentic farm town roots. Welcoming to all, you’re likely to have a run in with the winemakers and farmers themselves. This classy country town is exactly what draws the visitors to stay and call it home. There are few neighborhoods here, and of those most are mature with large lots. But the majority of the community lives on acreage. These homes with property cost about the same as a house in the suburbs making them appealing to buyers who prefer a more quiet way of living.
