Washington and Oregon Wines
The Wine Merchant in Hyde Park is featuring Northwest wines this month -- those from Washington and Oregon. You can try a number of them at their taste-bef0re-you-buy wine bar. It's a fun place where the staff pours generous tastes in good quality glassware. On my recent visit, there were a couple of good Oregon Pinot Noirs, a Pinot Gris (also from Oregon) and then several whites and reds from Washington. I'm less familiar with those, which is why I made sure to get by before the month was out. They had a merlot or two, a couple of red blends and a white blend as well as a chardonnay, all from Washington. Officially you'll pay 50 cents per taste, but that cost can be applied to any purchases you may make. I know it's almost the end of September, but I'm pretty sure they'll carry some of these into the beginning of October. Check it out!
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
