Montinore Estate Review

Locals chuckle at visitors who try to show off their French savvy when they pronounce it "Mont-in-or-ay." The estate, originally a ranch, was established by a tycoon who'd made his money in the Montana mines before he retired to Oregon; he decided to call his estate "Montana in Oregon." Montinore has 232 acres of vineyards, and its wines reflect the high-quality soil and fruit. Highlights include a crisp Gewürztraminer, a light Müller-Thurgau, an off-dry Riesling, several lush Pinot Noirs, and a refreshing Pinot Gris that's a perfect partner for Northwest seafood. The winery also produces a Pinot Noir Port. The tasting-room staff is among the friendliest and most knowledgeable in Oregon wine country.
