Spanish Wine – in Oregon!

I just got back from a camping trip through Oregon. Despite a bit of rain in Eugene, we had beautiful hikes and hot springs adventures in Umpqua National Forest and in Ashland.

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

Happy tasting!
