Favorite Oregon Wines

May is Oregon Wine month.  What better way to ‘celebrate’ the occasion than by drinking some great Oregon wines!  Here are a few of our favorites, all under $20:

All are available at BevMo, Specs, TotalWine

Sokol Blosser Evolution ($13-$18)

A favorite summer wine. Flavorful white blend with big tropical fruits up front, and a crisp, clean finish.  Poor a glass and go chill on the patio.  Food optional. 

A to Z Pinot Noir ($16-$19)

My brother Greg, and his wife, Jennifer shared this wine with us.  It is one of their ‘go-to’ wines, and after tasting it, you’ll understand why! It is a classic Oregon pinot, and hits three high notes for me:  enjoyable ‘ingredients to dessert’, under $20, and screw cap!

Erath Pinot Noir ($14-$19)

A regular favorite, and the wine that changed my mind on screw caps.  A lighter, fruitier pinot than what typically comes from Oregon. While it does pretty well on its own, it is best paired with food.
