No time to visit Vancouver on this trip, since Sandra wants to see more of ... ... Hill Market, we tasted at De Ponte Cellars - also very nice. My sister headed back home to Corvallis after that one, and Sandra and I went back to Youngberg Hill for a guest-only tasting of their Pinot's. We love staying at this B&B / winery!

We flew out west in early March (04 March 2017) to continue our annual wine tasting / visiting trips with relatives and friends. The hotels and other places to stay were all set, but the wineries on the visit list were not totally determined in advance. We planned two days of tasting in the Willamette Valley (McMinnville, Oregon) and two days ... Read More
I found this wine while browsing and was surprised to see it, I bought the last bottle and drank it last night with some Turkish food. The wine was silky and smooth, herbaceous and spicy with almost no tannin. It's not a profound wine, but a nice change from the usual. Read More

Tomorrow we were planning on driving out of town to do some wine tasting, etc....probably McMinnville. I was too busy and tired to really make any plans for th... Read More
Spicy on the nose with all many of crushed up herb and flower stems, a little peppery spice, and lovely intense red berry fruit. On the palate this is so juicy with bright acidity and a lightweight open, Burgundian feel. The red fruit is big but not heavy on the palate with very pretty ripeness. The finish is layered with herb and spice notes ... Read More
I get so caught up in work that I often neglect to check in here. I'm apologizing about that! I'm back afer a few weeks in New Zealand, which sucks up all my time not only during the trip but for the weeks prior and, as it looks, most of the week after my return. Before you ask, new Zealand was great. A young wine industry but one that has made... Read More
