Yesterday…


The food…..Crab, mango and mint all tucked into thickly sliced cucumbers

The seminar about local geology, viticulture and winemaking…

The guests…

The program…

The wine tasting…

Everything…..

If you missed yesterday’s McMinnville AVA tasting…it was nothing short of AMAZING

Thanks to everyone who came out, it was a monumental success.

  9. Looks like you had a wonderful day. What have you named your vineyard? How long before you start producing wine? How thrilling to see your dreams coming true.

    So glad you are showcasing the McMinnville AVA. It is truly where some of the best Pinot Noir is made. We live taking our Sunday drives down there…we pass right through Dundee and head to your area every time. Sorry we missed what sounds like was a wonderful afternoon. We won’t miss it next time.

    Your photos are also amazing. The food and wine glass shot are spectacular.
