Wow! It has been 26 years since it has happened in the United States. This is the year for the solar eclipse to pass through our area here in Oregon. It is when the moon passes between the sun and the planet earth. It will bring a couple minutes of darkness to happen about 10:15 am.

There are many celebrations to celebrate the total solar eclipse of 2017. We have some fun planned for after the eclipse here at Embrace Oregon. Join in on some fun with us with one of our…  After the Solar Eclipse Wine Tour specials going on August 21st through 27th.

Give us a call if you are interested in sampling some award winning wines at our week of solar eclipse fun.

 Reservations can be made by calling (503) 474-0762

As we travel around Oregon we see the vast landscape with its fields, orchards, gardens and row crops. Without taking time to stop and view these wonderful sights you will never know the how importance they are. We sometimes get so involved in our day-to-day lives we forget to look at the little things that make our days better.

Today, we were traveling around the countryside of Oregon and took the time to look at the vineyards, trees, corn fields and all the grass fields and orchards that surrounded us. It was a beautiful site with every color imaginable. There are so many colors of greens, yellows and browns.

Have you looked at the summer flowers? Those in your yards and those which grow wild along the highways. They are with bright gorgeous colors than make them stand out for you to take notice.

So, remember when you are going about your day to take a moment to view your surroundings. Remember those farmers who work so hard to grow food for your table. Remember to have fun among the beautiful colorful flowers that also brighten your day. We are blessed with a beautiful place to live, work and play.

Yesterday was a great day! We had a wine tour with seven wonderful guests. When setting up the wine tour we talked to Dave Walker at Tresori Vineyards. Dave invited us to sample some of Tresori Vineyards delicious Pinot Noir wines.

They were unsure about where to have us sample the wines. The new tasting room is under construction and not ready for this big Memorial Day Weekend winery opening. I told them to put out those signs that we were coming to visit.

With open arms Dave Walker, Joseph and Maureen Longo and the family greeted us. Joseph’s sister Jackie had decorated the building with her wonderful paintings and art. We were lucky to be their first visitors at Tresori Vineyards new tasting room. As we sampled these delicious wines more guests showed up. It was a great time enjoying wine, conversation and the valley view from this soon to be completed tasting room.

We would love to show you Oregon. Today was a special day. I met someone today for a wine tour. She was coming to McMinnville for the day from out of state. We met at the Evergreen Aviation Museum. When you go to pick up a new person you have never met before it is a great opportunity to learn about a new friend. It gives you time to learn about where they come from and things they like to see and do.

As we started out to see Yamhill County’s wine country we talked about where she came from and the type of wines she like. She told me of her areas of expertise with her job and how she loved to travel and try new foods and wines.

I gave her a little history of the area and about Oregon’s wonderful wine country. Since this was her first time wine tasting in Oregon she was eager to learn and sample wine. We traveled through McMinnville and headed to Carlton Cellars for a short tour of the winery and to sample wine. From Carlton Cellars we worked our way through the countryside to Laurel Ridge Winery where we had a light snack lunch along with… some more wine. Our last stop of the day was at Methven Family Vineyards. Which sits among acres if grapevines that have just been harvested. The leaves are starting to turn from green to gorgeous fall colors.

As the day came to an end and it was time to return her back to McMinnville, I knew Embrace Oregon and I had a new friend. It is always good to take the time to enjoy the day with someone new that you can call friend.

Have you been to Oregon’s Willamette Valley? Yes, there is rain and sunshine as well as a little snow. But, it does not rain all the time like many believe, there is a lot of sunshine and very little snow. The Willamette Valley has a rustic, rural charm all its own.

The valley is filled with community events, historic sites and a landscape that will take your breath away. With each of the changing seasons the valley takes on a different shape and mood. So, whether you come to the Willamette Valley in the winter, spring, summer or fall you will embrace Oregon’s Willamette Valley at its best.

The valley is 100 miles long and 60 miles wide. It is filled with quaint little towns, orchards, vineyards, farmland and farms of many kinds. The towns have many wonderful small businesses. Many of them have been family owned for years and have been pasted down from generation to generation.  

The folks are very friendly and love to see you come and visit.
