On the drive home from vacation in the San Juan Islands in Washington State, last week John and Paul and I visited two wineries in the Willamette Valley, south of Portland in Oregon. At the recommendation of my business partner, Kathy Jenks, we tasted wines at Willakenzie (founded by former Sun Microsystems executive Bernard Lacroute), and also at Domaine Serene. The area is famous for its Pinot noir grapes and wines. We came home with a case of bottles to enjoy during the coming year. I am not sure why Domaine Serene had a full-size wolly mammoth sculpture on the grounds but it makes for a good photo.
