Erath Winery

We had a free Saturday and thought it might be fun to visit a few places we’d never been before . . . We started with Stoller Estates, then on to a small tasting room for a large company called Cougar Crest and then we finished at Erath Vineyards . . .one of the ones that started it all for me.


During your next visit to the Willamette Valley, savor classic Oregon Pinot and enjoy the sweeping views of the picturesque Jory hills of Dundee, here at Erath Winery.

Erath Winery created one of the first Pinot Noirs I fell in love with . . Their 2012 Estate Pinot Noir created in me a desire to investigate this whole Oregon wine scene even more.  I truly was THE catalyst that began this adventure for me.  So, THANK YOU Dick Erath for sharing your gift with us all.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][dt_fancy_title title=”Photo Gallery” title_align=”left” title_size=”h3″ title_color=”accent”][vc_media_grid element_width=”2″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1548874271413-b41350ec-feba-7″ include=”15560,15513,15413,3119,15293,15366″ css=”.vc_custom_1548877189327{margin-top: 30px !important;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
