Seriously, We View This As A Job!

To all of our wine loving fans, please know that we are not slacking off! Rest assured we are taking this very seriously. We arrived in the Columbia Gorge 48 hours ago and have so far hit 9 wineries on the Oregon side of the river. As with each wine region we’ve visited on our 5 week bender, we found one gem that is not to be missed. Marchesi Vineyards is a small boutique winery owned by Italian Franco Marchesi, who in addition to making amazing big red wines, also pours in his own tasting room. Behind the counter you’ll find him cutting gourmet salami on a hand powered Italian slicer. He’ll serve you French bread with fine pepper crusted fontina which will pull out the flavor of his Gold Medal winning Barbera and Sangiovese. Super tops. Go there!

We will be in Hood River for the next week. I will be working at Outdoorplay headquarters and Stevie will be writing up a storm. We also have 16 more wineries to visit between now and when we depart for Idaho next Sunday, so there is plenty to get done. But we’re on the job!
