Local wineries will be swinging their doors open for one of the South Willamette Valley’s most celebrated 3 day weekends: Memorial Day Weekend. Winery Open Houses will be happening throughout the valley, it’s the official kick-off to the summer season.
One of my ultimate dreams is coming true this summer with Domaine Meriwether's Wine Camp - camping among the vineyards plus much, much more. This week's Wine Down is a must read!
Because of their excellent depth of character and vibrant, lively acidity, my top pick wine for Thanksgiving this year is Sparkling Brut Rosé. Read about my favorites:
From Champagne in France and Cava in Spain to Sekt in Austria and Asti in Italy, different terms for sparkling wine indicate the wine region where the sparkling wine was produced. Here in Oregon, we simply call it Oregon Sparkling Wine.
Changes are happening all over the South Willamette Valley, and from my own personal experiences, change is always good.
My summer calendar is filling up quicker than ever before, and I am super excited about some the events that will be taking me away from everyday life. From an inaugural Dishcrawl event in Eugene next week to a trip to Murcia, Spain next month, I have loads to look forward to.
My readers already know that I love wine, but occasionally I like to sip on an ice cold pint of beer. There's an event on Friday at 16 Tons that people who enjoy both beer and wine should not miss: Cheese Wars V: Wine vs Beer.
I must admit, I really love my job. Who wouldn't love attending fabulous food and wine events around the state of Oregon? Like I've said before, I'm a lucky wine gal, and I never take that for granted.
I used to think that wineries sort of slowed down during the winter months, the perfect time for a well deserved break between harvest in the fall and bud break in the spring.
I recently stopped by Domaine Meriwether, located in Veneta just off of Highway 126, to pick up a couple bottles of the newly released Celebration Cuvee Sparkling Wine, and I noticed something very different inside the winery.
