Ore­gon’s Wine Coun­try is a Hot Spot for Goat Yoga

Taste & Travel - - Dispatches -

Stretch­ing from the Columbia River in Port­land south through Salem to the Calapooya Moun­tains, Ore­gon’s Wil­lamette Val­ley is Ore­gon’s largest wine re­gion. Home to 500 winer­ies, it’s rec­og­nized as one of the top Pinot Noir pro­duc­ing ar­eas in the world. Other cool-cli­mate va­ri­etals such as Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardon­nay, Ries­ling and Gewürz­traminer are equally at home in this wine re­gion. Nearly half of all Wil­lamette Val­ley vine­yards are cer­ti­fied sus­tain­able, mak­ing the val­ley the world’s most sus­tain­able wine re­gion. The Wil­lamette Val­ley is also fast be­com­ing a hot spot for Goat Yoga, a ther­a­peu­tic yoga ex­pe­ri­ence founded in Cor­val­lis, Ore­gon by Lainey Morse in 2016. This work­out trend fea­tures a yoga class with barn­yard an­i­mals that con­cludes with a Happy Hour wine tast­ing over­look­ing the pic­turesque vine­yards. www.ore­gonwinecoun­try.org
