  • Chateau Bianca Winery
    No strangers to the art of winemaking, the Wetzel family?s roots run deep into the vineyards that surround their winery. For four generations, they have crafted award-winning wines in Germany, and for the last 35, they have called Oregon home. Chateau Bianca Winery peeks out from the Willamette Valley, where pinot noir grapes flourish across the estate vineyards. These carefully cultivated grapes eventually fill bottles with varietals such as the 2009 Chateau Bianca Estate pinot blanc, a dry, clean-finishing wine that makes a refreshing apertif. Guests visit the tasting room to sample some of Chateau Bianca?s wines, where each day a rotating selection of six bottles are uncorked for swirling and sipping. On days when the summer sun dapples the fields and shimmers playfully off Bacchus?s lampshade hat, sippers relax on the outdoor patio to enjoy a glass or share a bottle while looking out across rows of vines.

  • American Cornhole
    Eight bags. Two platforms. Two six-inch holes. One distinctly American game. The origins of cornhole are shrouded in mystery. Some say it derives from a German game, while others claim it is a descendant of a similar sport played by Native Americans. But one thing is certain?it's serious business. That's why the American Cornhole Organization was formed in 2005. By setting the rules, establishing annual tournaments and competitions, and firmly banning the practice of using trained birds to dunk bags, these referees have codified the sport and elevate it to a professional level.

  • Tualatin Estate Vineyards
    Tualatin, in the tongue of the indigenous peoples who named the river, means "gentle and easy flowing." As apt as the name is for the waterway, it also suits the wines produced at Tualatin Estate Vineyards. Founded in 1973 by Oregon wine industry pioneer, Bill Fuller, today the vineyard occupies more than 145 acres, fully planted with vines that produce award-winning wines. While soil nourishes gew?rztraminer, muscat, pinot blanc vines, more than 65 acres of it belongs to Willamette Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir alone. The winemakers cultivate seven different French clones of the grape, bottling a variety of subtly different wines that share common soil and ancestry.

  • A Framers Touch
    The picture preservers at A Framer's Touch encase beloved paintings, photos, and keepsakes in artfully constructed wall hangings that have garnered numerous awards at regional and international framing competitions. After art is transported to the shop, certified framers embark upon the 10-step framing process by consulting with customers to decide on the piece's materials, design, and ability to hang. A stockade of approximately 2,500 moulding samples proffers ample aesthetic options for frames' outer boundaries, and a variety of mats, glass coverings, and needlework choices allow for mind-bending levels of customization. Though rates vary as much as each piece's framed-in contents, basic prices range from $39.99 for an 8"x10" frame to $139.99 for a 24"x36" frame with a mat. To ensure professional work and eliminate the chances of frames being lost or damaged while catapulted between store and workshop, all framing takes place in A Framer's Touch's art-coddling shop.

  • Kayak Tillamook County
    Warmly reviewed by the Oregonian, Kayak Tillamook County tours explore over 800 miles of Oregon's coastal and tidal waterways. After receiving some basic paddling instruction and a review of the water cycle on dry land, each participant gets their own thermos of hot apple cider with a fresh cinnamon stick and a side of a Skout Bar before hitting the water. Kayakers will share the water with up to seven rivermates, paddling in the gentle wake of an expert guide over the course of the two-hour tour. Winter voyages can occur during salmon runs, so keep an eye out for a host of wildlife including eagles, harbor seals, and dads in grilling aprons. Temperatures are warmer on the coast during the winter than in the interior of the state and the tide is at its highest, enabling intrepid paddlers to delve deeper into nature while enjoying the crisp, clear winter skies.
