LOCATIONS

DOWNTOWN MCMINNVILLE

This is the little town you see at the start of the episode, and is a great place to start your adventure. It's a small quaint Oregon town in the Willamette Valley, but that's the charm. It's super close to a ton of wineries, so a good place to lodge if you prefer this over the big city (Portland).

LANGE ESTATE WINERY

The Lange family were one of the first to recognize the amazing potential of the Willamette Valley to grow incredible Pinot Noir. If you visit, you'll be able to try a lot of the single vineyard Pinots that are only available at the winery. Say hi to Jesse, Don, and Wendy for me!

DOWNTOWN PORTLAND

Portland is less than an hour from the Willamette Valley, and makes a good home base if you like city travel. There's a ton of park space, world class restaurants, and a lights out bar scene. Here are a few of my picks if you visit!   

WASHINGTON PARK
MEC
PORTLAND FARMERS MARKET
CANARD
MULTNOMAH WHISKEY LIBRARY

ELISE WAGNER STUDIO

It was my first time learning about encaustic art, and it was really fascinating! Elise not only sells her work, but offers classes at her studio!

Ned Ludd

This Portland Oregon staple of a restaurant was one of the first to arrive on the scene when Portland began taking off and has really mastered the fresh, season fare that Oregon is so known for!

THE COLUMBIA GORGE

About an hour outside the city, the gorge is worth a day trip exploration! Here are a few spots we visited!
