Portland is known for its bike paths and hiking trails. I appreciate its outdoorsy life style and the newly expanded Japanese Garden is not to be missed; but the truth is I came to Portland to eat….
It’s hard to miss at any of the nearby wineries, but it’s easy to concentrate in a small area around Dundee. Domaine Serene has spectacular views and its 2014 Evenstad Reserve Chardonnay was named best white wine of 2016 by Wine Spectator. Domaine Drouhin carries on an old French family Burgundy tradition; Argyle Winery will put the sparkle in any party. And at neighboring Oregon Olive Mill at Red Ridge the only olive oil in the state is being milled.
