Birthday Wine Country Tour

Took a drive to wine country on Saturday. Stopped at a few wineries to do a bit of tasting and chatting with the wine makers. Came home with a some really great bottles of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Gewurztraminer from Montinore Estate (http://www.montinore.com/) and Pinot Noir from Patton Valley Winery  (http://www.pattonvalley.com/) in Gaston, Oregon.

We also visited Anne Amie Winery in Carlton, Oregon (http://www.anneamie.com/) where we enjoyed awesome views from their terrace. This is the view driving up the hill to the winery. 

And this is a view from the winery looking west.  That is the coast range in the distance.

We asked another visitor to take this picture of Cris and I celebrating my birthday on the terrace at Anne Amie Winery.  It was a beautiful afternoon and I didn't feel a day older!
