Do you know which is the best winery in Oregon wine country this month?


Of course there are dozens, even hundreds of great wineries in our fertile wine country valley.  But the best for us this week was Natalies, for their delicious Big Bold Reds & amicable staff who also served a great lunch.   Also, Archery Summit, serving delicious seafood appetizers, Pheasant Valley in Hood River, offering anti-pasta platters for lunch.  Beer and occasionally a 'hot dog/beans combo for a buck' deal are also offered.  Another was Styring; for getting the 'raves reviews' from our customers. and who, very attentively and enthusiastically offered their guests complimentary tasting and delicious snacks and great tasting wines! A close 4th was Trisaetum, who offered a showcase winery; a magnificent art gallery, tasty wines & appetizers, barrel caves and a great time!.  Way to go Tristaetum---www.Trisaetum.com.

Wine Country Thanksgiving & Memorial Day Weekends

Visit wineries in the Willamette Valley that are rarely open to the public.

The Yamhill County Wineries Association hosts two annual, county-wide events, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day weekends!  This is one of the most fun weekends of the year; the mood is happy and infectious.  The wineries often bring in their favorite bands for all 2-3 days for your listening pleasure.  Dozens of usually closed to the public wineries host open houses, and you’re invited to swing by, taste superb wine and chat with local Willamette Valley winemakers! 

More than 150 wineries are open to the public from 11AM to 5PM during these two special weekends in the wine country.  Many of these wineries are not open at any other time during the year.  Festivities include tasting of new releases and older vintages, barrel tasting, specialty foods and sales of limited quantity wines.  Some wineries have live music and most charge a tasting fee.  Winemakers and owners often personally greet their guests.

City & Country orders solicited and Promply filled.

Make this weekend easy and exciting and call My Chauffeur early to order a tour or go on-line to take you and your group to this great event.
