Trisaetum (the winery’s name is a hybrid of their children’s names) was our last stop in the Willamette Valley.
The sun finally peeked out the afternoon we visited their winery. I don’t know what it is, but when the sun comes out in the Northwest every color is illuminated. I think I might have forgotten how beautiful a place it is.
In 2003, Andrea and James Frey founded Trisaetum (tris-say-tum) to produce Pinot Noir & Riesling. The family owned winery is located in the city of Newberg, in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, and produces small lots of delicious Pinot Noir and Riesling from its three estate vineyards. The tasting room is really bright with lots of windows, and houses some of James amazing artwork.
We enjoyed all of the wines, and I came back home with a bottle of their Chardonnay. Oregon is producing some really delicious Chardonnay right now, I think it might be the state’s next big thing. It should be, because it’s delicious.
