i recently fell in love with the entire state of oregon, one major reason being the delicious gewurztraminers we tried at many of the wineries along the columbia river gorge. i highly recommend any wine, hiking, camping or windsurfing enthusiasts to schedule a summer trip out there, ASAP! it's not crowded at all, even on holiday weekends, and it's absolutely breathtaking. we spent a week sunbathing on the riverbank surrounded by an arsenal of local gewurztraminers and hard ciders. truly the most relaxed i've ever been in my entire life.
what do you all think about this region? which wines do you love enough to buy a case of?
living in PA, i am somewhat bound by state stores, but not completely because i get to travel often. one of my favorites found in the state store is hogue gewurztraminer; pretty bottle too!
