Oregon and the Willamette Valley have become well-known in recent years for fine wines. We had out-of-town company last week and enjoyed touring a few of the wineries that are within just a few miles of our Oregon home.
This is a view of 'wine on the vine' at King Estate.
A couple of interesting old barns belonging to a neighbor of the winery.
But on top of the hill, nothing is the way farms in this area used to look. This is the winery and restaurant and a view of the "King's Estate." (The founder of the vineyard was Ed King -- only his name, not really royalty.) But on a beautiful day -- when you are enjoying good food, good wine and good company out on the deck -- it is easy to feel like you are living royally.
