This piece had several sources of inspiration. First and foremost, acknowledgment to the Eat Local and Shop Local movements and to the sheer number of amazing Portland foods you don’t want to miss. Secondly, when I read Oregon Wine Blog's story about being wined and dined at the Vancouver Washington location, it triggered my memory about a previous post they had done on pairing Voodoo Doughnuts with Sokol Blosser Medritina and it all came together here. Thanks to all for helping bring this one to life. Enjoy and until we sip again…

Glad you liked the 07 Trisaetum Riesling! I like the 2008 with spicy dishes too. Hope you'll come out soon and try the new styles we're pouring for Memorial Day!

Especially for mother's day this is a great idea! Mothers always like self-made stuff better than bought things. This inspires me. Thank you! Quality iBeacons Online
