The Southern Willamette Valley has some awesome wine industry growth right now. One of my favorite local producers is William Rose. They produce their wines right in the heart of Eugene, and sell it right off 5th and Lincoln at their location, The Oregon Wine Lab.
Oregon Pinot Noir can be a very difficult wine to find while maintaining a frugal budget. I’ve tried many less than $20 dollar Pinots, and until now I’ve had a tough time finding one that truly impresses me.

Parades with gleaming fire trucks, kids waving flags, the mouthwatering smell of BBQ’s, and night skies lit up with glittering fireworks – the Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.
