We are seriously so spoiled here in the NW. Over 400 world-class wineries all within an hour drive of downtown? Amazing. While I am still very much a novice in regards to my wine knowledge, I love to learn about wine making and of course try new wines.
Last summer at the Sauvie Island Center’s Annual Barn Dance, I won a private tour and tasting at Dobbes Family Estate. As they make beautiful reds under their namesake label and also one of my personal staples, Wine by Joe, I was pretty excited. Plus we were going to get a visit during harvest season, so there was lots to see and learn.
