Serene Sunday

Today my husband and I decided to tour four wineries.  These were chosen at random.  The great thing about our Serene Sunday's is that we are discovering places to take our friends/family that is when they finally decide to visit us! 

Our first stop was Eola Hills Winery.  This place was bustling.  They do Sunday Brunch, but you have to make reservations so we plan on doing that for another Serene Sunday.  All I could think of was how my friend in Colorado would love the biking theme and how the girls would love to sit outside having brunch, drinking wine and catching up.  They also have a great gift shop!

Our next stop was Firesteed winery.  I am not fond of Rose wine, but fell in love with theirs.  We were also shown the new Riedel wine glasses especially made for Oregon Pinot Noir.  (Click on Riedel and learn why these are the only wine glasses to have in your collection.)

The new Oregon Pinot Noir Riedel wine glasses.

Stop Number 3 was Johan Vineyards.  Their Pinot Noir is my all time favorite.  I must remember for future wine trips that the third winery is where hubby stops looking at the cost of the wine.  He only realized later that one bottle of Pinot was $47.00 (converting for my international friends ZAR439.00 ~ AUD67 or GBP38)

Our final stop was Left Coast Winery and we were very thankful that they served lunch.  Wine tasting was starting to kick my ass.


Hope your Sunday was just as serene.
