Sunriver 2010 Winefest Wine Festival A Hit

by Sunriver Homes on July 26, 2010

The day was sunny and beautiful as only Sunriver can produce. The views from the back of Sunriver lodge where the 2010 Winefest was held was a picture perfect postcard. Mt Bachelor glistened in the distance, the fairways were an emerald green, and no one seemed to have a care in the world.

It’s easy to forget there are any problems in the world when you’re visiting Sunriver. The wine festival was yet another Sunriver event that allowed people to take a little time for themselves, unwind, and experience some of the best wine produced along the West coast of the United States.

From Santa Barbara to Seattle, over 35 wineries brought in their finest wines for Sunriver guests to enjoy. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, & Merlot were most prominent throughout the different tasting booths, while Cabernet, Pinot Gris, Syrah and Riesling rounded out the top wines featured.

My personal, all around favorite winery that was represented was Vitis Ridge in Silverton Oregon, because of the fact that they didn’t have a single bad wine among their offerings. Their 2009 Chardonnay was a real surprise with a ripe fruit flavor not usually found in a Chardonnay. Some of the other standouts for me were the Baco Noir (a hybrid grape) from Girardet winery in Oregon which had a similar quality to a jammy Zinfandel but a lighter, brighter version of it.

The festival featured live entertainment, demonstrations, and an assortment of artisans selling hand made furniture, jewelry, art and more. Winefest is just one of many year round events that Sunriver offers. For those looking for a second/vacation home, you will be hard pressed to find a recreational community that has more to offer than Sunriver.
