Last week was my last week at Bodegas La Emperatriz in Rioja Alta, Spain. I am now preparing to leave Europe and move to the North Willamette Valley of Oregon. The Willamette Valley is located South, South West of Portland, Oregon and is well known for their award winning Pinot Noirs.
For more information on Willamette Valley, please visit: http://willamettewines.com/ where they have some great maps of the wineries in the region. They are also on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/willamettewines
