Wine tasting at Stoller Family Estate in Dayton, Oregon. Stoller Winery offers amazing views of the Willamette Valley with your wine tasting.
You may have read my previous posts where I mentioned that we’re in way too many wine clubs. We need to cut back. Especially now that we’ve got six wine coolers in our kitchen, with no room for more, and they’re all full up. I recently cut out a couple of our memberships after much deliberation. It’s like an amicable break up. We’ll see each other, but it won’t be exclusive…
But there is one wine club that we absolutely won’t ever leave.
Stoller Wine Club
Stoller is the one wine club that we just cannot cut out of our lives. Why? The biggest reason is the pure beauty of Stoller. With is sweeping grass lawn, Adirondack chairs, and tire swing in the distance, it’s the perfect spot for a summer picnic. If you’re planning a wine tasting trip with kiddos in tow, this is definitely the place for them. There’s plenty of room to run around and enjoy the sunshine.
Stoller has jokingly been called “Camp Stoller” or even “Stoller State Park.” That should give you an idea of just how family friendly and wide open their winery space is. I mean, just look at that view. The whole scene is set by the large oak tree on the property with it’s tire swing. This is definitely where most of the kids hang out, while the parents sip their wine.
I love Stoller Winery in the winter too. The large and expansive floor to ceiling windows offer amazing views of the vineyard when the rain is pouring down.
Stoller Family Estate Wine
Of course, we can’t leave out the wine – All produced exclusively from their estate vineyard. In the warmer months, their rosé is a favorite of mine. A perfect patio sipper that pairs well with these Chicken Curry Skewers and fresh vegetables from the farmer’s market. When it gets cooler, I’m always turning to their Dundee Hills Pinot Noir – Priced at just $30 a bottle, it’s an impressive Oregon pinot that doesn’t break the bank. I love to drink it with this Slow Cooker Osso Buco. On movie nights, nothing beats a bottle of their Reserve Chardonnay and a bowl of buttery popcorn.
Stoller Winery Location
Stoller Family Estate is located at 16161 NE McDougall Road in Dayton, Oregon and open daily from 11am – 5pm. Tasting flights run $15, waived with a two-bottle purchase.
