The most scenic wineries in the West to inspire your next getaway
by Sarah Medina
“If you’re planning a wine-fueled getaway this fall, you can’t do better than the Western United States. You know about the amazing wine that awaits you in California’s Napa Valley and Sonoma, of course (and you might even know about Walla Walla, Washington), but wine regions in Oregon, Arizona and Southern California have made this list. Want to sip champagne that rivals anything from France or try a varietal straight from South Africa—we have wineries for that. To sum it up, the best wineries in the West offer seriously good vino and even better views.
While Argyle Winery makes chardonnay, riesling and Oregon’s signature pinot noir, you’re here for the bubbles. Argyle Winery makes its champagne using the méthode champenoise, which means it’s the closest you can get to the real thing in the United States. The indoor tasting room, a former hazel processing plant, has glass walls which lead to a spacious, covered patio for uninterrupted views of the wine region.”
