I’m going to be in the Salem, OR area on March 27 and 28 (Fri-Sat) and whenever there I try to take a trip to the nearby Willamette Valley and get all liquored up, or at least buy a bunch of good wine and take pictures. So anyone up for a west Oregon meet-and-greet/wine tour?
Alternately, anyone have any favorite wineries in the region that I should check out? Grenz?
My wife and I spent a great weekend winery touring a couple of years ago. We signed up for a package deal with McMinamin’s (or however you spell that) where you can stay at their Hotel Oregon in McMinville, and they’ll bus you around on Saturday to several local wineries to try some wine, meet the vintners, have a good time. On the drive back through Portland the following Sunday we took the opportunity to stop at a few more wineries along the way. It’s a pretty decent way to spend a weekend, in my opinion.
