Newberg, a great place to grow!
Located in Yamhill County in Willamette Valley wine country, Newberg is home to vintners who craft complex pinots and creative chefs who use the region’s bounty to curate imaginative menus. Visitors flock to enjoy fine art and wine in historic downtown Newberg or visit the award-winning wine region that frames the town by bountiful rolling hills of fertile farmland.
Newberg is located approximately 25 miles southwest of Portland, Oregon on US Highway 99W on the northeast side of Yamhill County. This gem sits just adjacent to Sherwood, Oregon. Although conveniently situated near the many assets of the Portland metropolitan area, the community retains a distinct physical separation from the metro region, buffered by a greenbelt of rural forests, wineries and farms. The Chehalem Mountains surrounding the community and the broad Willamette River create a natural bowl, providing a special sense of place that is cherished by the citizens of Newberg. Home to over 22,000 people, Newberg enjoys a diverse, economic base. The community’s strategic location also provides numerous recreational opportunities. A short drive provides access to the urbane pleasures of Portland. Countless rivers and forests are within easy driving distance, offering boating, fishing, and hunting opportunities. Several golf courses are located in the county. World-class wine tasting is available throughout Yamhill County, which has the reputation of being the Napa Valley of Oregon. A one-hour drive east will take one to the Cascade Mountains for skiing, camping, fishing and hiking. A one-hour drive west will take one to the breathtaking views of the Pacific coastline, with its many beautiful beaches.
