As you’ve probably figured out by now, I prefer Washington state red wines. But there are other wines from the northwest that I also enjoy. I’m from the Northwest — I grew up in Vancouver (B.C.) and then I briefly lived in Oregon before we made Seattle our home.
I first started writing about wine in Portland ten years ago, in a bi-weekly column called “Uncorked” for KOIN-TV’s Web site. At the time, we had a few favorite Oregon wineries: Erath Winery, Sokel Blosser and Ponzi Vineyards to name a few. But I’m sure many more have made their mark in Oregon wine country in the last decade.
We have to go to Portland for business in the near future and we’d like to do some wine tastings. Do you have suggestions of good wineries, within driving distance of Portland? If so, please let us know.
