Dominio IV is a small winery nestled on the fertile slopes of Columbia Gorge that uses biodynamic and organic farming magicks to fill its acres with tempranillo, syrah, and viognier grapes. During your tasting, you’ll get to test-tipple four or five of the estate’s finest varietals in the comfort of its newly designed tasting room. Once you’ve sampled a grapey distillate that causes your brain to audibly giggle, use the $20 credit to take home a bottle of it. You can tantalize taste buds and taste buddies alike with the 2009 Dragonfly Rising viognier ($22), spoil yourself with the Song of an Uncaged Bird 2006 syrah ($30), or capture the flavors and smells of a misty Oregon autumn with the Rain on Leaves pinot noir 2007 ($32).

Sculpted into the one-time family farm of former Oregon Governor and U.S. Senator Charles McNary, McNary Golf Club encompasses diverse trees and rippling waterways into an 18-hole layout that spans 150 acres of rolling meadows. A mixed assemblage of oaks, firs, pines, and redwood trees mingle on the course's emerald sidelines, watching over each towering drive and bickering about squirrel housing arrangements. Claggett Creek comes into play on four holes, including the signature 18th, where its rippling waters snake in front of the enormous green, shaking its hydraulic fists at well-struck balls as they somersault onto the putting surface. A staff of resident aces roam the pristine grounds, showering guests and unsuspecting flagsticks with nuggets of golf wisdom.
Course at a Glance:
The menu at MacGregor's Public House reads like an atlas of the Scottish highlands. The burgers—such as the Pentland with cool tzatziki—are each named for a region of the little nation. Composed of lamb and beef, the juicy patties are hormone- and antibiotic-free and carry inventive toppings such as pan-fried pastrami and Granny Smith coleslaw. Shepherd's pie and fish 'n' chips further the sensation that one has stepped into a public house in the Scottish countryside, and pies made from scratch cool, their golden crusts covered with melting ice cream like a bad magician at third grader’s birthday.
Taking advantage of the region's specialty in wine production, Topaz HomeStyle Bistro offers an enviable selection of the region's fermented goods, including complimentary wine tastings. The winery on show changes weekly, providing motivation to come back and check out which grapes are impressing the owners during any particular fortnight.
In addition to that focus on wine, the kitchen proudly sends out its chefs' own twists on classic dishes and internationally inspired small plates, which give diners the chance to gather, share food, and feel like they're part of the Topaz family. Executive Chef Adam keeps the menu fresh, taking advantage of the harvestable bounty of wine country to make his signature dishes. Customers can enjoy the tequila-lime chicken quesadilla—stuffed with jalapenos, tomatoes, fire-roasted bell peppers, onions, cilantro, and cheddar-jack cheese—and the three signature slider sandwiches, such as the turkey burger with mixed greens and cranberry aioli, each of which can be shared or purposefully withheld from tablemates.
Liberty Spirit Bar & Grill stuffs noisy shout-holes with sauce-slathered sandwiches and succulent steaks. Lunchers reminisce about laundry day while rinsing a philly steak sandwich in cleansing jus sauce ($6.75) or carefully folding a chicken-bacon wrap's tomato-basil tortilla to avoid wrinkles ($6.75). During the bar's regular comedy nights, the protein in a 12-ounce rib-eye steak dinner fuels spectators' belly laughs and rotten-tomato tosses ($14.75), and karaoke warblers wet whistles with a pint of Ranger IPA or one of four other beers on tap before serenading companions with Revolutionary War anthems. Daring drinkers can sample the bar's signature concoction, the Raspberry Kamikaze, a mysterious beverage whose secret recipe is known only to Liberty Spirit bartenders and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
