What do you get when you put together a few residents from the warm coastal South and a guest from London?  A whole lot of fun!  Even better is tasting a badass chardonnay.  Not all wines are created equal, and the Willamette Valley has enough wonderful wines for everyone…..even a red wine drinker who now…

Remember the circus and how many clowns came out of one car?  This is how our third stop described a bolder Pinot Noir on the flight which was a partially fermented whole cluster.  Today’s tour was an insightful day full of wonderful new friends.  Friends that enjoy clowns just as much as me!

Upgraded from efficiency model 1.0, this group was quite shy in the beginning but went to task when there was wine to taste! We love converting “beer only” and “red only” embibers to full-on Oregon wine drinkers. We adore sharing what we love about the Valley and we really enjoy when our groups end the…

Today’s tour with a few executives in the plumbing, sewer, drain & water restoration business made it clear that enjoying life and keeping positive could keep everything from going down the drain.  We all need a break, a moment to reflect, laugh and reconnect with ourselves….something a day in the wine country can help to…

An overcast day with light rain did not keep these new friends from enjoying a day in the wine country.  We started with sparkling wine, various white wines and some lovely Pinot Noir.  After learning more about how to taste wine like a pro, we enjoyed a beautiful charcuterie platter of locally sourced items and…

Intimate Relationship with Pineapple

We at Triangle Wine Country Tours are going to take what this fun group said and run with it. And because of them, we might even change our tagline to “the gateway drug for wine tasting!” Our group of first-time wine tour participants found much to love about the lexicon associated with wine tasting and…
