Getting away to the countryside is the perfect way to refresh your soul. Just a short drive from Portland, Newberg is responsibly and safely open for business and offers plenty of ways to be physically distanced, and enjoy the bounty of harvest time in Oregon Wine Country.
While the wine harvest is underway here in the Willamette Valley, a number of wineries offer socially distant outdoor tastings to enjoy this autumn, offering a perfect escape for the beautiful weather in the forecast for early October. Just remember to dress for the weather, and make a reservation, as most of these exceptional experiences require an appointment.
A month-long celebration of Hispanic-Americans and Hispanic culture kicks off this week across America. Here in Newberg, the Chehalem Cultural Center has three events, plus a November 7 celebration fo Dia de los Muertos.
On September 1, downtown Newberg will have a new taste experience — Good Company Cheese Bar & Bistro. The shop is the dream of Kristen Kidney and combines a cheesemonger, with a lunch and happy hour spot, as well as a full bar. It’s a new concept that’s bound to be a hit.
