Last Friday we decided to take a ride to Eola Hills Winery in Rickreall, Oregon. The weather was beautiful, sunny, clear, and just perfect to enjoy a picnic lunch and some Eola Hills Chardonnay.
We arrived at about 1 pm and purchased a bottle of Eola Hills 2009 Oregon Chardonnay. One of my favorite spots is Eola Hills Winery. Always friendly folks and always very good wine. Eric Rogers, a member of Eola Hills Management and a long time friend, was there to share some of his golfing experiences when he visited Scotland this year.
After some great conversation with Eric we ventured outside to their outdoor seating area and enjoyed lunch, wine cheese, bruschetta and more wonderful weather!
Eola Hills Chardonnay is always very good. It is best to enjoy this wine chilled. The taste is superb, not too oaky, slight hint of pear, apple & spice and crisp on the palate. Smooth finish great with most any cheese and best of all under $10 a bottle.
I give this wine a solid "A-" rating. I will continue to enjoy Eola Hills Wines, including their Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Reisling.
