Are you interested in tasting wine from one of only 3 producers who grow Tocai Friulano in the Valley? What about visiting a winery started by a master sommelier? Would you like to sip Pinot with a perfect view of Mount Hood, Mount Rainier, and Mount Jefferson? We can make it happen! Bring your pup along, too. We’re dog-friendly. I will pick you up in front of The Dundee Bistro at 10:30 a.m. We will then stop at our first winery, Furioso Vineyards. You will have the opportunity to sample Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as Tocai Friulano, a white wine The New York Times affectionately dubbed “an Italian wine that makes friends easily.” We will then depart for our second stop, Sokol Blosser Winery. There you can enjoy a sample selection of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Müller-Thurgau, and more. Next I’ll take you to the hottest lunch spot in the Valley: Red Hills Market, a country-style, curated market offering locally sourced, handcrafted sandwiches, wood-fired pizzas, salads, soups and seasonally inspired dishes. You can choose to eat at the market or we can find a nice spot to picnic. After lunch, we will depart for Fairsing Vineyard, where you can sample their array of handcrafted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Finally, we will finish the day at Penner-Ash Wine Cellars. There, you can enjoy a tasting of five current release wines.
My name is Ashley and I’m a former chef who packed her bags and moved to the Willamette Valley to life a life filled with… wine. When I’m not driving through the hills of wine country, I’m most likely out exploring with my dog, Bleu! My biggest passion is traveling and I’ve visited 30 countries. My bucket list includes cage diving with sharks, spending time in Africa volunteering and trekking through Mongolia on horseback. I’d love to share my love of the Willamette Valley with you.
I will provide guests with chilled still and sparkling water.
I will pick you up in my Lexus RX 350, which can seat 4 guests. (I can acquire a larger vehicle with advance notice.)
We will visit four renowned wineries in Willamette Valley: Furioso Vineyards, Sokol Blosser Winery, Fairsing Vineyard, and Penner-Ash Wine Cellars. We will also enjoy a delicious lunch at Red Hills Market.
