“Best of” List from a Week of Wines (Sonoma to the Willamette Valley)

While we were in the car from Dundee to Portland, I polled the four of us road-trippers to find out where we had our best wine tasting experiences this past week (from our first day of biking and tasting in Healdsburg to our last day of driving through the Dundee Hills).

We rated the wineries and tasting rooms we visited on the following criteria: the taste of the wines, the atmosphere of the tasting room, and the experience we had while tasting the wine (ex. the friendliness of the staff).

So, without further ado, here’s our ranking from best to the least best wine tasting experience:

1. Mazzocco Winery in Healdsburg, CA (www.mazzocco.com)

2. Press wine bar in Dundee, OR (http://www.innatredhills.com/press_wine_bar.html)

3. Amista Vineyard in Healdsburg, CA (www.amistavineyards.com)

4. Eyrie Winery in McMinnville, OR (ww.eyrievineyards.com)

5. Dutcher’s Crossing Vineyard in Healdsburg, CA (www.dutchercrossingwinery.com)

6. Vista Hills Vineyard in Dundee, OR (www.vistahillsvineyard.com)

7. De la Montanya Vineyard in Healdsburg, CA (www.dlmwine.com)

8. Armida Winery in Healdsburg, CA (www.armida.com)

9. Ridge Winery in Healdsburg, CA (www.ridgewine.com)
