Travel Thursday

Willamette Valley Vineyards

On my trip to Oregon, I was fortunate enough to have a scheduled Brides Luncheon the day before my friend's wedding, at the beautiful King Estate Winery.

First we took a tour, then had a delicious lunch consisting of an Artisan Cheese Plate with a brie, goat, and parmesean cheese with olives and fruit. I had a delicious Margherita Pizzetta with homemade tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella cheese and basil. Mom had the Tarte de Jour, which was a trout tart. Quite tasty. The bride had BBQ pork ribs. The private room we occupied had tudor style windows stained a mahogany red color, they were beautiful and rich with a sunny view of vines all around, as the winery is perched on a hilltop. Dessert was my favorite though, as I chose a fresh Bartlett Pear & Raspberry Crisp with almond struessel. It was piping hot and perfectly paired with a cinnamon ice cream. Pure Heaven. Followed by our tastings of mainly white wine. :)

Here are a few photos of the tour. Some were from the iPhone, so please excuse if they aren't the best.

  3. Oh I love wineries & wine. It's so much fun to go through and see how it's made. It was so clean?? I'm shocked. I've been to a winery in New Jersey that had stuff everywhere. hehe. Looks like a beautiful place!!
