Recently, I went wine tasting with a small group on Third Street in McMinnville. There are several wine tasting rooms & restaurants right on 3rd St. Willamette Valley is the best. They have comfortable couches, a long bar & a large wooden table that looks like it seats 20 or more people. This is great because several parties can be in the tasting room at once and still feel comfortable. We spent probably an hour there tasting wines and getting great information about the winery and wines from Kevin. We never felt rushed. We are wine club members.

At the end of two days of touring wineries in the Willamette Valley, we walked into this tasting room. On our way out west we'd ordered one of their wines at a fine restaurant, Portofino, in Lexington, KY, and immediately put W V Vineyards on our TO-TASTE list. There we met Steve Brusell, much to our delight. He couldn't have been a better representative. While this winery produces an incredible volume of wine, and we'd actually had one of their large-production wines in KY, Steve explained about their small production wines, 48 barrels, 28 barrels, and, for one of our favorites after tasting, only 7 barrels. You must try their reserve tasting flight to sample these small production wines. Steve knew these wines like old friends, and soon we felt like his old friends too. He answered questions, told about each vineyard, was patient when we said we needed one more taste of a previous wine to compare, and we finally filled a case with a mixture of these fine wines. At all the previous stops we'd bought one or two or no bottles at all. His enthusiasm for describing and sharing his wines were genuine and invigorating, and we will always stop by there when in Oregon. If you meet Steve, you'll see what we mean! Their wines are very special, one we bought strictly for a wedding present.....

Located in downtown McMinnville, this tasting room features a beautiful wooden bar on which to enjoy their fine wines. The tasting costs $10 and can be shared, which we did because we planned to visit several wineries that day. We chose this as one of our stops because we can get their Pino Noir in North Carolina.

We wandered in when enjoying the shops in McMinnville and were greeted by Kevin and Kaylee (sp?). They were busy but made us feel welcome and attended to at all times. Even though closing time passed, Kevin made sure we tasted all of the wonderful wines and that we did not feel the least bit rushed...even on Labor Day weekend. Kudos to Kevin and Kaylee for being outstanding representatives for the Vineyards!

What a fabulous place to do a wine flight! Kendra and Kevin were both so welcoming! Kendra was the perfect balance of knowledgeable and down-to-earth. The wine was delicious and even better the price is right. If you're wine tasting in McMinnville this is a must go.
