On my way back from the gorgeous Oregon Coast, I had time to stop at one vineyard in Willamette Valley.
Two Portlanders suggested I visit Archery Summit for the beautiful views. While this is my only experience in Willamette Valley so far, it is hard to imagine it could get any better.
Pinot noir is not my favorite because I find it too light-bodied. My time in Argentina influenced my preferences for full-bodied, complex wines with strong tannins.
Luckily, I picked the right vineyard in Willamette Valley for my tastes. The sommelier told me that Archery Summit is actually known for making a more full-bodied pinot with bold tannins.
Beautiful views, great wine, and it’s less than an hour drive from Portland.
