I am traveling to OR with my husband Fri, staying at black Walnut Inn through sunday, and sunday driving to eugene. we prefer to find awesome vitners who make only a small no of cases. E.g. we love thackery''s Andromeda, Sine que non's wines, Bella (syrah/zins). Where should we go in willamette? Unfortunately, Ken Wright, Le Cadeau, Beaux Freres, and Soter are not open to public.
Please help us with our list for the best stops for best red wines/vineyards/etc...
Friday: Elk Cove, Scott Paul, Chehalem, Adelsheim (not a HUGE fan of their pinots), four Graces
Sat: domaine drouhin, domaine serene, archery summit, Penner-Ash, Bergstrom, Torii Mor
Sun: St. innocent, Cristom, Bethel Heights, King Estate.
If you have better suggestions, or vineyards that should be taken off if overpriced, over hyped, etc, please let me know. We are huge foodies and wine lovers and want to take home lots of great wine!
