my true love gave to me . . . spirits! No, not the ghostly kind ~ although we do have many in Oregon. These spirits warm the heart and soul as you wander our Southern Oregon vineyards! My favorite gift to my father each Christmas was a bottle of wine signed by the vineyard owner so even though we were far away from each other, I was there in . . . ok, I’ll say it . . . spirit. ; )
I was going to post video on all the beautiful vineyards here in our own Applegate Valley but figure why re-invent the wheel when we have the Applegate Wine Trail! I will tease you with some photos though ~ Valley View, Bridgeview and Troon Vineyards are all within 5 miles of my house . . . lucky, lucky me!! Of course, I’ve visited all and each has its own flair . . . kind of like our Joeys!
Send us your local favorite! And make sure you take a Joey with you. While Joey can’t be a designed driver, it will let you be handsfree to truly enjoy the fantastic food and wine offered by the wineries. Wine and handsfree fun are the perfect holiday combination. Please be responsible ~ don’t drink and drive. Hiring a cab to take you home also supports local businesses.
