links we love...
We appreciate great websites and talented people. Ok, and maybe an occasional plug for our friends! Here are some sites and folks we think are pretty cool.
Wine and Food events by city, worldwide. Spirits and Beer events as well. Post your own event or sign up to be notified when new events are posted to your area.
Host Gary Vaynerchuk is our kind of wine guy - he knows his stuff and is hilarious. His daily video blogs are a must-see to discover new wines and meet wine legends.
We love her "anyone can know wine" approach. Her book The Wine Bible is so easy to read and will teach you a ton about wine.
Wine country sites:
Willamette Valley, OR
Napa Valley, CA
Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez, CA
Tim Gunther Photography
One of the best we know and the man behind the beautiful images on this site.
The Neat Sheet
Local gal Karen Vitt's cool blog on what's hot in Portland style. She mixes it up when it comes to personal style because hitting the trail is as important as hitting the town.
Jason Karl Design
This is the graphics man who puts our designs ideas into the finished product we love!
Made in Oregon stores
Awesome selection of local goodies including wines, jams, smoked salmon, art, jewelry and apparel - great way to tell someone you were thinking of them whether you live here or are just visiting.
Anyone can be a gourmet cook with these recipes - we rely on the fork ratings to tell us real feedback from people who have already tested the recipes, ie, did the research for us.
We love a good resource site for people who want to start their own business.
