On Sunday September 5th we decided to take a drive to "Wine Country" in the Willamette Valley near Salem, Oregon. We found Orchard Heights Winery while driving on Highway 22 towards Salem. Orchard heights Winery is much like finding a "gem" in the rough. They serve "Sunday Brunch" and have quite the gift store.

We had already eaten lunch so we will try their "Sunday Brunch" another day.  We did try some of their Pinot Noir. This is by far my favorite wine and I was not disappointed. I usually measure any Pinot Noir based on Eola Hills Pinot Noir. I have to acknowledge that Orchard Heights Pinot Noir is as good as any I have tried including Eola Hills.

We enjoyed a bottle, on their patio, along with some snacks, cheese, grapes, crackers and some delicious grape tomatoes.

Orchard Heights Winery is definitely on my list for a return trip. The setting and view of the Willamette Valley, Coastal Range and Marys Peak are worth the trip on their own.
