Oregon Winery Tour


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted because I was in a wine lover’s paradise — Willamette Valley (OR) — for a couple days.  I visited some wineries, met some great people and enjoyed some phenomenal varietals.

To start off my trip, I booked a tour at penner-Ash.  Notice the typing on that.  The owners wanted something basic for the appearance of the name/logo, as in lower case, but Ash wanted his name capitalized.  But, when you read the logo it’s not the easiest to catch.

While on my trip, it was high harvest season.  Grapes were being picked, processed, etc.  So, I got to see lots of good stuff!  Grapes fresh off the vines:

One of the next processing steps — they start at the top, get pressed and move their way down:

Grapes in the process of eventually making their way to us:

Tasted five great wines while there.  All were amazing and it was tough to narrow down which ones to buy.

The tasting room at penner-Ash is so nice — it overlooks fields and hills.  It was a beautiful day when I visited so I could see  so much landscape.  I recommend checking this place out next time you’re in the area.
