A Perfect Saturday Outing


Wine tasting in the Willamette Valley on a gorgeous fall day! What a perfect way to spend an afternoon.


Add in some delicious food, great views...


...and girlfriends, celebrating a birthday!




Perfect!


And key? A party van to transport everyone between stops.


Another winery...


...specialty vinegars...


...and a final stop for a delicious meal! 
{obviously everyone received the boot & skinny jean memo}

If you are ever in Oregon, take time to visit the wineries of the Willamette Valley!

  1. Looks like a fun Saturday outing with the girls!

    By the way, I am hosting two fabulous giveaways! Enter to win a set of beautiful vintage alphabet cards and a $65 gift cert for some pretty pillows if you like, Janell!

    Have a great day!

  5. So smart with the party van! Woot! BTW - Sokol Blosser Evolution is one of my favorite whites - which is saying something because I'm red girl. ;) Loving your skinny jeans and boots - apparently that's the new black!

  6. Oh, this is one of our favorite things to do! My brother lives in McMinnville and we get to the Willamette Valley a few times ever year from Seattle! It is so beautiful and friends who we bring can't believe we are in Oregon! We went with our wine group In September before Harvest, and it was gorgeous with the plump grapes on the beautifully colored vines. Bergstrom, Anderson, Penner Ash, Lemelson and Sokkol Blosser are our favorites! What a nice way to spend a Saturday!

  7. What an absolutely perfect way to spend a Saturday. I have enjoyed wine from the Willamette Valley but have never made it there. Maybe next summer. BTW, you need to do a post on skin care because you have gorgeous skin. Secret please!!!

  8. Oh my you guys look fabulous and looks like you had a great time. Love going wine tasting - we go to Walla Walla, WA every year. Have to try the OR side one year too.

  11. What a perfect weekend getaway! We were in the Williamette Valley this summer and I love the Oregon wines tasting! But if you are ever in Canada, you need to head to Okanagon and hit their wineries!

    I am with Carol, what is your skin care regime? You have fabulous skin!

  13. You all look like a fun bunch of girls. The goat cheese with cranberry topping looks amazing and I don't even like goat cheese.

  15. That looks like so much fun! It is fun to see the Willamette Valley - where I grew up (and it was beautiful but very humble during those years!) - blossom into such a fantastic destination as "the new Napa". I love Oregon wines and I look forward to enjoying more down the road!

  16. What a perfect way to celebrate--birthday or otherwise!

    I've done a small amount of the Willamette wine touring and loved it; Sokol Blosser had some beautiful tipples in at the time, as well as being a very pretty setting!

  17. Looks like a blast! Gotta love girl's night (or day!) out! And I agree with the ladies about sharing your skin care regimine. You look fabulous! I'm seeing a future blog post! : )

  18. The skin. Want your skin to glow prior to a photo? Stand under a heat lamp! We all were prior to a kind man offering to take our photo so we could all be in it!

    Apart from that, sunscreen and a good skin care line. Thanks! Janell
