Exploring Oregon - Wines and Ghost Towns




The Columbia River Gorge is home to some of the most beautiful wineries in the state.  Sweeping views and warm sunshine.  What you may not know is that there are some fun ghost towns to explore too.  Make a day trip out of it, pack a picnic lunch, visit the tasting rooms and explore some of Oregon's history.












Do you think the early Oregon settlers would have ever imagined we would be making wine?


Here are some links to get you started:
