Cooper Mountain Vineyards is located 20121 SW Leonardo Lane in Beaverton. There are a few patches of vineyards and huge houses beyond the vineyards.
There were 5 wines to taste for $15. They were all good. Their wines are reasonably priced. The Tocai is $22, Chardonnay "Old Vines" is $25 and the Pinots are $25-50.
They even had balsamic vinegar--$40. They were barrel aged for 15 years. This was as good as the balsamic vinegar we had in Modena, Italy for a fraction of the cost.
Our next stop was Eyrie (pronounced "Eye-ree") Vineyards, located at 935 NE 10th Ave. in McMinnville. The tasting room is in the center of town. Tasting fee is $10 (4 wines) or $20 (7 wines). Eyrie introduced Willamette Pinot Noir to the French but I liked Cooper Mountain better.
Our last stop was at Stoller Vineyards, located at 16161 NE McDougall Rd., Dayton. It's a beautiful winery with outdoor seating
and a view of Mt. Hood.
Wine tasting was $15 for 5 wines but the best thing was the Meat & Cheese Board for $25. The spiced filberts were especially delicious. They were coated with honey, cumin, coriander, salt, paprika and pepper. Yummm!
