McMinnville is an easygoing, progressive city nestled in the heart of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The city’s historic downtown has been recognized by the American Planning Association as one of its prestigious Great Streets in America. McMinnville’s central location means its nearly 35,000 residents aren’t far from the scenic Oregon Coast, the state capital, the “Big City” of Portland, or the slopes of Mt. Hood. Home to world-class Pinot Noir, McMinnville attracts winemakers and food and wine tourists from around the globe.
