Get Your Gris On this Weekend

by Gretchen Demoss

It’s summer and a great time to drink white wine. While the Willamette Valley is known for their pinot noir, the wineries here put out some great pinot gris. This weekend is your chance to visit a number of wineries in the area and taste some great gris.

I received this great graphic highlighting the participating wineries from Oak Knoll Winery. I couldn’t have put it together better myself, so I’m sharing their graphic with you.


For more information, visit the Oregon Pinot Gris web site.

I know that  Apolloni Vineyards, Kramer Vineyards, and Oak Knoll Winery have dog-friendly grounds. If you go, be sure to have your dog on a leash and pick up after them. Also, the dogs can’t go in to the tasting rooms. Hope to see you out there.

Also happening this weekend is Carlton’s Walk in the Park. This is a benefit for local charities that combines artists and musicians with local restaurants and wineries. There are 27 wineries participating. This event is not dog friendly. For more information see
