Willamette Valley, Oregon Wineries and More!

Stag Hollow Vista

This part of the world is very, very green. The views from a high point in the valley will take your breath away. Verdant fields, blooming clover and grape vines line every road. The wine tasting tours are only surpassed by what you might find in the Sonoma/Napa Valley area in California...and then not by much. Bed and breakfasts with romantic names like FBrookside Inn on Abbey Road‎ are readily available. It is the perfect escape from the realities of this world.

We have just passed the Memorial Day holiday and it is gorgeous, sunny and warm. The temperatures have been in the 70's since last Thursday. Rose Festival has just started in Portland and visitors from around the state and nation will come to this area for a beautiful holiday. It can rain but this area is beautiful because of the rain.

I want you to late a look at the pictures I took on Sunday when my husband and I wandered down the road toward Carlton, Oregon. We ate lunch at the Cunea winery (Cana's Feast) and visited Stags Hollow Wines and Vineyards a little later. It was one of those days when I could have been tempted to buy real estate. Then again I already have a beautiful condo, live here 6 month of the year and love every minute of my time spent in my home state. I own a rain coat, sweater sets and warm slacks. In my own personal view it is perfect...even in the rain.

Come on over and see us sometime! =)
