a carlton vineyard
so if you are a wine lover like i am, there is a great event happening out in carlton this weekend that i highly recommend. it's called carlton's walk in the park.
one of the things i love about portland is our close proximity to some amazing wine country and carlton is my absolute favorite place to go to visit some of the best oregon wineries. carlton's walk in the park is perfect because many of the wineries and restaurants are there together in one place so you don't have to drive to each individual establishment which can be a bit of a challenge navigating those country roads. i always manage to get lost when i'm out there!
the event takes place at carlton's wennerberg park and it only costs $15to get into which is a great price anyway but the proceeds go to charity so it's well worth it. two of my favorite mcminnville restaurants, la rambla (so cute and bohemian)and nick's italian cafe are going to be there so be sure to check them out at the event or stop by one of them on your way home.
la rambla 238 ne 3rd 503.435.2126
nick's 521 ne 3rd 503.434.4471
be sure to take a designated driver as it is a ways out and i don't want anyone getting into trouble.
