Welcome to Sherwood
This small, popular city features a growing wine country and lots of new construction.
Steeped in tradition and defined by its historic town center, Sherwood features a population of a little more than 18,000 residents and is full of antique shops and historic buildings. A virtual snapshot of small-town living from another era, the area is perhaps most famous for its annual car show and Robin Hood Festival.
Located in the Chehalem Mountain American Viticultural Area (AVA), Sherwood is one of the fastest-growing wine destinations in the northern Willamette Valley, with seven (and counting) vineyard-estate wineries. There’s a year-round Christmas shop here too, plus some roadside farm stores and a national wildlife refuge.
Just minutes from Portland, this charming oasis offers lots of bucolic beauty.
