Baked goods and sweets draw on the European tradition of la dolce vita.
Bread and wine are a vital combination in the Yamhill Valley, where bakeries draw from the same European inspiration as the wineries, creating the kinds of picnics which would have enthralled Impressionist painters.
Carlton Bakery creates four varieties of baguettes, eight flavors of shortbread, and sandwiches made with its house-made bread and local pork, fresh from Carlton Farms.
Blue Raeven Farmstand offers thirty-five varieties of pie, with the unchallengeable motto, “Pie fixes everything.” Honest Chocolates, with branches in Newberg, McMinnville and Carlton, produces handmade chocolates flavored with pinot, merlot and port, each bite invoking the mystical mingling of chocolate and red wine.
For every sip of wine that comes from Yamhill Valley, there is a bite of something made locally to accompany it deliciously.
