Geo 730: June 20, Day 536: Giardet

This is the Giardet Vineyard and Winery. The central Willamette Valley is the better-known area for Oregon wineries, but we found on this trip that there is a rapidly growing wine area around- particularly to the west of- Roseburg. I'm not wine-knowledgeable, and don't know what the terroir of this area does for grapes, but the number and apparent success of vineyards in this area suggests that there's something pretty good about it. And the approach that this particular vineyard uses to get their soils was new and very interesting to me...
