Wine& travel

Posted by jackwerickson, Jan 7, 2014.

I am planning a trip in the next 3-4 weeks to travel to Washington and Oregon to explore the wineries .would appreciate any suggestions. I am flying into Seattle  then driving to the tri city area. My thoughts are to spend 3-4 days in this area then go to the Pinot area southeast of Portland for 2-3 days then back to Seattle for 2-3 days. I know this is vague but have not set agenda  would like to visit Leonetti, Col Solare, Owen Roe, Quilceda Creek. These are wines I am familiar with in Texas  but I am open to suggestions from anyone familiar with this area. Thank you for your help

Hello Jack, we were in Oregon last 4th of July and spent a couple days in Willamette and Eugene.  I wrote a short trip report and you can find it here:

July 4th in Oregon

The highlights for us were:

Salem area:
Cristom Vineyards
St. Innocent Winery
Bethel Heights Vineyard
 
Dundee area:
Sokol Blosser Winery
Torii Mor Winery
ArborBrook Vineyards
Ponzi Vineyards
 
I would not hesitate to go back to any of these wineries, not a bad one in the bunch from our experience.
 
I found a lot of good recommendations just by searching past posts, have a great trip!

I second the recommendation of Sokol blosser and Bethel Heights.

I would also recommend Stoller vineyards in Oregon... I have not personally visited this winery, but tasted their wines a few years back on a virtual tasting here on snooth.   Fantastic pinot...

HI Jack,

There are tons of wineries to visit in Woodinville.  It is a short drive East from Seattle.  It is actually a bit overwhelming.  I can give you a list of places that I like.  Is there any particular styles that you are more interested in?  Here is a note on the wineries you mentioned:

Leonetti - I'm not sure if they have a tasting room.  If they do, it will be in Walla Walla.

Col Solare - I'm pretty sure you can taste at Ch. Ste. Michelle in Woodinville.  Also, by private appointment at the winery  

Owen Roe - You can visit in the Walla Walla area or Oregon

Quilceda Creek - They don't have a tasting room and the winery is only open to wine club members on limited days during the year.
