Peter Schroeder and I would like to thank you for your warm welcome at Youngberg Hill Vineyards and Inn in conjunction with my article for Wine Enthusiast magazine.
Surrounded by your vineyards and overlooking the entire valley, the Inn embodies the wine country experience. Our accommodations in the Martini Suite offered both casual comfort and spectacular views of a rosy sunrise set against the peak of Mt. Jefferson. The delicious breakfast set us up for our day’s adventures–I especially enjoyed the cheese blintzes.
I also enjoyed having the chance to sample your excellent wines. This was my first trip to the Willamette Valley, and I was fascinated to learn more about your terroir and the clones that flourish best there.
My article about “Outdoor Adventures in Wine Country” runs in the April 2009 issue of Wine Enthusiast–I look forward to sharing my experiences with my readers.
Best regards and happy holidays–
