Oregon Wine Country Tour

Though Shirley and Martin are here from London to visit their daughter and her family, we get to see them quite a bit and they devoted the entire day of Sunday to us. We took them on a little drive through Oregon Wine Country. The weather was a bit dreary - cloudy and cool - but it did not rain all day. We were disappointed the views to the Cascade Mountains were non-existent... which only means they will have to return so we can do it all again.

The first stop on our tour was to Red Ridge Farms (home of Oregon Olive Mill) so I could buy a gallon (yes, a gallon!) of local olive oil for our impending winter-on-the-road in our motorhome.

We continued our drive to Domaine Drouhin. Not only do they have lovely pinot noirs, this property is situated for the perfect views to Mount St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson. Except not today.

The cloudy views didn't stop us from having fun

Domaine Drouhin - even without sunshine, the colors were magnificent

We continued our drive, stopping to snap photos of the colorful vines.
