With so much palate-enticing Pinot Noir flowing throughout the Willamette Valley, it's no wonder why Oregon’s Willamette Valley has been named the wine region of the year by Wine Enthusiast. For those looking for a world-class Pinot Noir experience, there’s no need to look any further. This perfectly curated Pinot Noir trail delivers a tantalizing visit to some of the best Pinot Noir tours and pours the Willamette Valley has to offer. . With all four wineries - Le Cadeau, Archery Summit, Domaine Serene, and White Rose Estate - having Pinot Noir scoring 90+, it’s safe to say this is the ultimate Pinot Noir tasting trail. The trail highlights the character of the red volcanic Jory soil while simultaneously showcasing the versatility this varietal has to offer. Complementing the award-winning wines you’ll taste, each of the tasting rooms offer something special. From some of the most prestigious vineyard, valley and mountain views, to curious sculptures and wine caves.
I had an amazing fifteen year tenure in the world of technology. From driving industry standards and promoting startups, to managing global communication and crisis programs for a Fortune 100 company. For me it’s about learning, rising to the occasion and innovating. Now, you’ll find me personally and professionally immersed in the world of viticulture. While my time in the Willamette Valley strikes a wind-down and relax chord, don’t underestimate the hard work of this industry. I am fascinated by its constant coordination and adaptation to constant change and uncontrollable hurdles. I am passionate about understanding this craft, and finding new ways to bring the long-standing tradition of wine tasting to a new generation.
