Few wineries are as easy on the eye as Domaine Serene. I visited on an idyllic spring morning, the drive up to the Dundee Hills winery affording a splendid view of the Willamette Valley (whereas last time I visited it was shrouded in fog). They are currently constructing what appears to be a huge tasting room facility, no doubt with panoramic views in every direction. Of course, the Evanstads hit the headlines earlier this year when they bought Château de la Crée in Santenay. It was a neat reversal of the trend for Burgundy winemakers investing in Oregon. Please note that 1 bottle has a slightly nicked label.
