Today our adventure took us through the Willamette Valley wine region for visits to numerous vineyards to sample their award-winning wines. It was easy to find our way after several tasting…we just followed the arrows to the next winery.

We were feeling no pain by noon.

The rolling countryside of Willamette Valley has row upon row of grape vines as far as the eye can see. Each winery was unique...and we enjoyed them all. Mom wanted to stay longer at the last winery, but we convinced her it was time to move on.
