theTastingRm.jpgWILLAMETTE VALLEY, OR - A big thanks to Jim White over at the NapaMan (napaman.com) blog for tipping me off to the wine wonders available for sampling and sale at The Tasting Room (pinot-noir.com) in Carlton, OR.  Situated smack dab in the middle of the Willamette Valley - Oregon's Pinot Noir heartland - The Tasting Room offers tastes and bottle sales of 40-50 of the state's best under-the-radar producers, many of whose wines aren't available for sale anywhere else.

Acme Fine Wines (acmefinewines.com) - Karen Williams' and David Stevens' cult-popular St. Helena wine shop - has moved from its cramped signless location to a legitimate retail store complete with temperature-controlled storage lockers, a wine tasting bar and new staff on hand to help steer walk-ins towards the hard-to-find bottles Acme is famous for.
