I have always wanted to get out and visit vineyards and go wine tasting. Just outside of Portland there are tons of vineyards and tasting rooms in Yamhill county. Yet I had only been twice. Recently one of my dear friends invited a group of us to go wine tasting at Duck Pond Cellars outside of Dundee, Oregon. I loved tasting the different varieties of wines, but I loved even more the tour of the facilities. I find it quite fascinating to see how things are made. Although most of the operation was not running on this Sunday afternoon, we were able to see a fresh set of grapes going through the auger getting mashed up. After having such a fun day with the girls, I decided I must go back soon! I really want to do a full vineyard tour and be able to photograph the beautiful landscape.
