Wine Country Cuisine - Picnic Lunches - Other

My Chauffeur specializes in wine & cuisine tours of Oregon.  Your tour concierge (full-service tours) is available to plan your tour lunch and/or after tour dinner.  Available are picnic lunches provided by wine country caterers; a restaurant/cafe stop & winery supplied lunches. 

Picnic Lunches*SEE DISCLAIMER AT BOTTOM - The 'power of the picnic' is a great unifier and stimulator for friends or co-workers.  Many wineries have picnic grounds in which to enjoy your picnic, and most have beautiful scenic locations. In general, the wineries do not have indoor eating areas. If the weather is bad, plan on going to a winery with a covered picnic area, eating in the vehicle or visiting a restaurant/cafe. It is customary to purchase wine bottles at the host winery to enjoy with your lunches.

CREAMERIES

When touring Oregon's wine country, My Chauffeur encourages you to seek out neighboring creameries and wineries for pairings sure to please.  Buy a variety of cheeses, go to a winery, find a scenic spot and have a picnic.  That's what fine wine & cheese is all about.

  1. Briar Rose Creamery (Dundee Hills; neighbors of Lange, Torii Mor, Thistle & others)

  2. Willamette Valley Cheese Co. (Salem; neighbors of Stangeland, Bethel Heights, Witness Tree, Cristom & others)

  3. Secret Surprise (Boedingen Farm)- "It was a fabulous day, but the best part of our trip to wine country was the last stop of the day when we drove out to a farm for fresh goat cheese. It’s a small family farm – not easy to find, but well worth the hunt--(Don't worry, we know the way). As you drive up the driveway, you see a little red and whiteBriar Rose Creamery shed next to the big house. There are chickens wandering everywhere and little pens of goats scattered all over the property. Inside the shed is a small refrigerator and a money box. It’s the honor system, so we make sure to bring enough cash for our goat-cheese habit. Now, I’ve been making goat cheese for a few years from the milk of our little Nigerian Dwarf goats, and we both love our homemade cheese, but the cheeses from this farm are possibly the most delicious goat cheeses I’ve ever tasted. The Chehalem is a mild soft-rind cheese that I tend to favor, but we always get a container of the fresh chevre for cooking – you know, like omelets." (Homesteadsupplyco.com)
