Hi y’all! I hope you are having a fabulous week! My last recap of Oregon is finally here. If you missed it, I have days 1, 2, and 3 up on the blog. Make sure you check them out to see where our adventures took us!
Our final winery visit of our trip was at Cristom Vineyards. We had such a lovely experience at Cristom. Their view and wine were phenomenal! Founded in 1992, they believe in respect for the land and the natural wine-making process. They have 58 acres of vines with four different estate Pinot Noir vineyards – Eileen, Jessie, Louise and Marjorie. The vineyards are named after women family members. Their flight is $35, some of our favorites included their 2018 Mt. Jefferson Cuvee Pinot Noir and their 2019 Estate Rose Pinot Noir.
We knew once we booked this trip that we would have to carve out some time to visit the Oregon Coast. The goal was to become a Goonie and visit Cannon Beach but that didn’t work out. I am so glad we just went with the flow and stuck close to home! Driving from Cristom to the coast took about an hour. When we left Cristom it was almost 100 degrees however when we arrived to the coast it was only 58 degrees! We ended up driving to the town of Neskowin to check out Proposal Rock. We then headed north to Pacific City, continuing on to the three cape look outs. We finished up at Oceanside and stopped and grabbed a bite in Tillamook… yes the famous cheese factory! It was a beautiful stretch of scenery. Perfect for a little afternoon trip!
Another wonderful adventure in the books. I am so grateful we were able to visit during this pandemic. All the wineries were so grateful for our business and I am so happy we were able to support wineries during this unprecedented time. I am already looking forward to our next visit! We ended up visiting ten wineries in four days! I call that a win!
