I've been having a swell birthday week thus far, enjoying every moment of it. It's been full of family, love, laughter, food and some superb wine!! This household is officially turning into some WINE-OH's! We finally made a trip to the Oregon wineries! Since we stepped foot in the state of Oregon over 3 years ago, everyone spoke highly of Oregon's wine, and the experience of wine tasting! We love us some wine!! It only took us three years to realize it's time to take the half hour trip and taste our lives away!
First stop was Eola Hills... home of some of Oregon's famous and delish wine! This was one of my fave wineries (possibly because we were able to taste up to 7 types of wine which was complimentary). We totes lucked out with a great wine-ologist (so I called him) who wasn't keeping count at all! I think we may have tasted the entire menu which was sooo over the limit of 7!
The beauty of going wine tasting in this area is that there are multiple wineries along the same highway within a mile apart from each other! I wish I would have known this three years ago! I sooo would have been there way back when!
So we hopped in the truck and traveled down the highway, not even an entire song-length of a drive! On to Firesteed we went, which was a bit smaller than Eola Hills, but definitely not disappointing! This place has a charge of $5 a person to partake in wine tasting, but we totes lucked out yet again! As we were walking into the winery, a couple was leaving, and hinted to us wine tasting is complimentary today because the wine-ologist was feeling lovely since it was her birthday! So our group walked in singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and sure enough... we tasted the entire menu fo' FREE!
