Cristom Vineyards, Willamette Valley
Venturing outside of Portland, we visited two wineries, including Cristom Vineyards in Salem. Wandering the vineyard, we sampled some of the grapes left over from harvest. The pinot noir grapes were so good! Why can't we buy those at the grocery store?! The wine tasting was an education on Oregon wines and we learned a lot. We also enjoyed a variety of wines. While I usually prefer red wines, their Pinot Gris ended up being my favorite.
