USA Today recently published an article by Robert Holmes called Oregon wine tours, which features a number of wine tours and suggested destinations.
Wine Country Farm Bed and Breakfast offers Oregon Wine Country Lodging with spectacular views of the Willamette Valley and Cascade Mountains. According to their website, Wine Country Farm is a 1910 farmhouse with nine luxury suites located in the McMinnville area at the heart of wine country.
“Hitch your horse in the paddock and walk inside to the tasting room of the property’s winery, Armonea Wines. The vineyards date back to 1970, but the winery is relatively new producing a very limited quantity of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Muller Thurgau and Riesling. If you like what you taste, this is the only place you will be able to purchase the wine and there is plenty of room in your saddlebag for a few bottles.” – Holmes
Winter’s Hill Winery is a family winery currently operated by the third generation of Gladharts since their farm was established in 1961. Delphine Gladhart, winemaker at Winter’s Hill Winery, was trained in France and makes superb Pinots. Holmes suggests relaxing on their terrace overlooking the Dundee Hills. Their eco-friendly vineyard is LIVE certified and SalmonSafe.
