Seeing that I have been on my McMenamins Passport adventure
for nearly a year now, you might think that when I dine out it’s at McMenamins only. Well, that is somewhat true. I will still concentrate on visiting all of the location I have not yet been to, until I finish my Passport in October 2017.
Nevertheless, I do like to try non-McMenamins pubs, restaurants and bars as well. One such establishment is the Pheasant Run Winery Tasting Room
about three miles east of the I-5
and not very far south of the Portland metro area.
It’s hard to say exactly how I heard about it, but once it was on my radar, I visited Pheasant Run four times during the last half of 2016.
Opened in 2010, the tasting room is a small, friendly place with limited tasting hours: noon to 5:00 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. In addition, they are generally open the first Friday of each month from 5:00 to 9:00 for small meals and snacks, wine and live music. During the summer the bistro experience is on offer every
Friday evening, with seating available both indoors and outdoors.
I had a different experience on each of my four visits, in June, August, September and December. Over the course of those visits I took only 27 photos. The best 13 have made it into this album.
