For my fellow wine lovers out there, you probably know about the many good things coming out of the Oregon wine industry. However, I’d forgotten about all the wineries in Oregon that are growing Spanish varietals. If you live in California, I highly recommend attending the annual TAPAS Society event in San Francisco to discover wines made here in the U.S. using Spanish grape varietals. If you find yourself in Oregon, go have a tasting at one of the wineries listed below. It’s a great opportunity to branch out from the ever-popular Pinots, Cabs, and Zins.
Abacela – Albariño, Tempranillo, Graciano
Kriselle – Tempranillo
RoxyAnn – Tempranillo
Carlo & Julian – Albariño, Tempranillo
