Wine Tasting at Champoeg Wine Cellars
in Aurora, Oregon

July 17th, 2004

Imagine our delight when we drove up to the Champoeg Wine Cellars and discovered that the buildings were a very lovely shade of purple.  We were given exquisite service and food by the Tasting Room Manager, Robin Rowland, and the Chef, Peggy Planer.  (Row 1, Photo 3) 

We were seated on the back patio overlooking the magnificent wine orchards and enjoyed tasting the following:

  • Heirloom tomatoes with fresh fennel & salmon with Pinot Gris

  • Chicken salad with Chardonnay

  • Melon with Riesling

  • Quiche with French Prairie Blanc (blush)

  • Chocolate cream puffs with Pinot Noir

  • Lemon cookies with Port

The food was excellent, the wine fabulous, and the company, as always, was terrific!

I wanted there to be a little more action in the pictures I was taking, so I asked Gail Oliver to please do something silly to make the picture more exciting. (Row 4, Photo 4).
