Pictures in Wine Country

red ridge farms

Mostly pictures today! We went to the Dayton and Dundee area a couple of weeks ago and I took a lot of pictures. It was a beautiful day — sunny and not too warm. A great day for buying an olive plant and tasting some wine!

First stop, Red Ridge Farms, 5510 NE Breyman Orchards Rd, Dayton, OR. I love this place. I could wander around here all day.

Olive plants — they had three varieties that supposedly thrive in Oregon. A Greek one, a Spanish one and an Italian one. I believe we got the Greek variety.

We also went to Domaine Drouhin, 6750 Breyman Orchards Road, Dayton, OR. Again, right in the nearby area. This is a view from inside the tasting room, looking out at some grape fields.

    Hello,
    Fellow Portlander here, trying to plan a day in wine country. Can you recall what the tasting fees were at the wineries you went to?

    VCK: Hi — they both had different tasting ‘flights’ — I want to say they were priced at $5 – $15. Both the ones we did were (if I remember correctly) $10. Both places said we could split a tasting glass (at SB we each got our own, at DD we split).

    Both fees were waived if you bought enough wine. I think our 3 bottles at SB were enough to do that. At DD (more expensive that SB), we only got one bottle and didn’t spend enough to waive. While I liked both wineries, SB was my favorite of the day! Hope this helps :)
