Oregon’s Surging Wine Country
Who’s ready for a fun filled wine weekend getaway in Oregon?
Once you land in Portland you are only 45 min North of the astonishing Willamette Valley (pronounced Will-am-et) There are actually a few amazing wine regions in Oregon but the flagship and the stronghold of Oregon’s famous pinot noir culture is in the Willamette Valley.
Surrounded by mountains on three sides sets the stage for a gorgeous fertile valley perfectly suited for agriculture. We could be having this discussion about hazelnuts, strawberries, apples or pecans. Instead, let’s talk GRAPES!
Tune in next week! We’ll talk more about Oregon’s pinot noir and talk about some great wineries to visit. – Your Secret Somm
