Wine Julia - Latest Comments
I'm going to do one with my food review group, the Local Lunch Gals here in Eugene real soon. We've even got some invitations to people's homes because they claim they make the best! Ha!
Such a great day!! I am craving one right now. Where will the Showdown be next?
Wow, thanks for sharing your experience here! It is truly an amazing place, and I'm so glad you all are planning return visits - great place to bring your husband! He will undoubtedly be impressed - cheers - Julia
I'll second that! Last weekend I, and 5 of my girlfriends, were in the McMinnville/Dayton area tasting wines, we were new to the area and come 4:00pm on Saturday, we had no idea where to go for a GOOD dinner. By chance we asked a couple of gentlemen at a nearby winery where they would recommend. They said, if we could get in, the best place
would be the Joel Palmer House and mentioned the focus of the restaurant was
mushrooms. Intrigued by this comment we had to give it a try. Fortunately when
we called, at 4:10, there was room for us if we could be there by 4:30. Who
knew a Town and Country van could fly?? We made it to the restaurant by 4:27.
Several of us in the group have been in the restaurant business, have traveled in Europe and several other countries, and one of us was a previous manager at a winery in WA. We agreed that our meal was possibly the meal we had ever had and the service is top notch! Wonderful food + great service = memorable experience. Several of us are already planning a trip back to the Joel Palmer House for a romantic weekend with our husbands in the near future. Thank you for sharing your talents!

Best Case Scenario: Union Wine Company Kings Ridge Pinot Noir
Back in February, big news broke in Oregon's wine industry: Two 40 foot containers, about 27,000 bottles, equaling 2,200 cases of Oregon Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris departed the Port of Portland for South Korea. Being the largest shipment in Oregon’s history, a door was opened for Oregon to a growing Korean market.
My 1/2 Day Vacation: Spain ~ Rías Baixas Albariño
It's that "liquid sunshine" characteristic found in Albariño that just totally captures my heart, and it's the best way to describe the two most recent Albariños (a 100% and a blend) I've had in my glass - both from Terras Gauda in Rías Baixas.
Bloody Mary Showdown: Seattle
One of my favorite days from the entire #winegirlsgetaway was the very last day - spent in pursuit of the ultimate Seattle Bloody Mary. We called it The Bloody Mary Showdown in Seattle.
The Frugal Wino: Carlo & Julian Estate Pinot Noir 2009
Attending industry tastings gives me the chance to try countless Pinot Noirs from all over Oregon. Ranging mostly from $30-$75 dollars, each is delicious and offers distinct flavor characteristics which are brought on by the area where the grapes are grown - there is great diversity in the Willamette Valley alone.willamette valley
