First, what a beautiful facility! But, better than that, the person who served us was friendly, knowledgeable---and not at all pretentious. That was a treat all by itself. Since we were last in the area, the Willammette Valley and surrounds have exploded with even more wineries, vineyards, and tasting rooms. This is quite an expensive excursion, however. Used to paying a tasting fee, of course, we were rather surprised that most charge $15 per person, often with you needing to spend at least $35-$50 in wine purchases to have the fee waived. Ouch. As residents of a town near Woodinville, Washington (an area that has many tasting rooms and wineries, although the grapes are obviously grown elsewhere), the general prices in Willammette took us by surprise.
Stoller had some very nice, reasonably priced wines (that we purchased), but the experience, being educated about the Winery and the area (by a somewhat recent transplant from North Carolina, but who was already rich with history of the area and detail about the winery and the wines), made the visit more special. The grounds are beautiful. The winery cat (yes, cat) comes and goes. The view is tranquilizing. Highly recommended.
