Last week on Labor Day we decided to appreciate the help of our friends and colleagues by visiting our good friends and customers Vista Hills Vineyard and Winery and Stoller Vineyards for an afternoon of winetasting and snacks.
We all had worked hard and we certainly appreciate the help of our friends and colleagues. A 7-seater van and a designated driver made it possible for all of us to enjoy the afternoon tasting wine, chatting and chilling in the shade of two wonderful vineyards in the dundee hills.
First we visited Vista Hills Vineyard and Winery. Ryan – the Tasting Room Manager – welcomed us. After chatting for a little while he started serving us a flight of 6 wines. We had 2 white wines and 4 reds. We sat outside on the porch enjoying the great view in the shade of the trees surrounding the Treehouse. With the wines we enjoyed a tasty cheeseplate.
After about 2 hours we bought some bottles of our favourite wines and continued on to the next vineyard.
Arriving at Stoller Vineyards we were warmly welcomed as always. Sitting in the deckchairs in the shade, sipping on the Stoller Wines we enjoyed the afternoon. We tasted 5 wines and relaxed and chatted.
To complete our afternoon of non-flying helicopters and enjoying wines we headed to McMinnville Downtown to the Hotel Oregon and climbed the stairs up to the famous Rooftop Bar to get some dinner.
Usually we are unable to enjoy the wines at the wineries since we are working with the helicopter. So we really had fun just hanging out there sipping wine and chatting with our friends.
