Montinore Estate is a wonderful campus of tasting areas, vineyards, wine production, and of course a tasting room / hospitality center. Marc Hinton, Director of Hospitality, gave us a wonderful tour of the estate and we got so much great footage, that there are 3 videos to see. (Links to their more→
I can not say enough good things about Ron at Marshal’s Vineyard, what a genuine guy.
We met Ron at the Wings&Wine festival, and Ron said if Vyd Vlog came up, he’d give us a barrel tasting. Well, I don’t think we left a barrel untouched, and he’s got varietals galore just hanging out in the [...]more→

Archery Summit is atop a hill like many of the Willamette Valley vineyards, and it has spectacular views. The tasting room is nice and they are very good about doing tours of the cave and had 4 pinots to taste when we visited.
The staff was very accommodating and they have great history in their name [...]more→

They are quite active in their local community, which has block parties and other fun collaborative wine events. ArborBrook has a playground on site and welcomes families. It’s a [...]more→
Come check out Anne Amie! Set-up on a hill, Anne Amie has a spectacular 180 degree view. The wines speak for themselves and they tasting room has a classical, French, Victorian, feeling – much in spirit with their labels.
