We always have fun when our returning guests come back to visit. This time they are a spunky group of ladies who love to laugh and enjoy sampling many types of wines.


We started our day at the Red Lion Inn & Suites McMinnville and headed on a journey to visit some Yamhill County wineries.



Our first visit was in the Dundee Hills at Wine Country Farm Bed & Breakfast and Armonea Wines. While sampling the wines we were able to see the horse riders coming in from a wine tour through the vineyards.


Then we headed south to visit Methven Family Vineyards to sample the wine and enjoy a few snacks.There was a little time for some great conversation. 

Time allowed for us to visit Brooks Wines and enjoy another array of wines. Some we were a little surprised by. We also learned about biodynamic farming.


To end our day we took a little drive down McMinnville’s Historic Third Street to check out sites and then headed to the hotel.



It was a lovely day with my returning friends. The next time you are in our neighborhood give us a call and we can enjoy the day with you.

We do have fun in Oregon!

The big question is what do you like: Do you like Pinot, Chardonnay or Big Reds?  There are so many wonderful wines out there in the world to experience. Going to one of these events is a great way to sample those wines you have never heard of, to see the differences in the wine and wine master styles.

We love having fun no matter where we go in Oregon. We just completed a Central Oregon tour and totally enjoyed ourselves. As we arrived in Central Oregon we were able to view the beautiful mountains with their winter snow.


We stayed at the Eagle Crest Resort and attended the Oregon State Championships for grade school girls basketball. The games were exciting and fun to watch during this two day event.


Then it was time to see the sights around Bend, Oregon. One of our stops was at the High Desert Museum. The sun was shining and we toured the museum as well as the wonderful exhibits outside.

Fall is in the air in Oregon. We can see the changes taking place each day that we wake to meet our opportunities. With the warm days and lovely cool nights it gives us a formula for the leaves to change their colors. We are seeing many shades of greens, reds, yellows and oranges decorating the landscapes. The best part is that it is only the beginning of our fall season.
