Keep in mind that it is winter, and Oregon can be wet and chilly, so come prepared. Although the average temperature in the southern Willamette Valley in January is mid-30’s to mid-40’s, and one in ten years can result in snow on the valley floor, it is just as likely to be brilliantly sunny during the last week in January. Thus we recommend both a raincoat and sunglasses. Warm layers of wool or fleece, with a final waterproof, breathable layer are best. A scarf, gloves and a hat will make your head and hands happy. If you are attending the Grand Truffle Dinner, the dress is semi-formal cocktail attire so don’t forget to pack something elegant.

When it comes time to pack, check the forecast one last time so that you can arrive feeling comfortable and prepared.
