Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Funky Eugene

On the road, along the West Coast, we stopped at Eugene, Oregon, funkier and more radical that Berkeley. The "Fish Market" is a trip! A great fish market in West Eugene with a huge selection of fresh seafood and fish to take home and cook. They also have ten beat up old tables where you can indulge in all kinds of delights starting with Gumbo and Cioppino and lots of variants of fish and chips. We ordered from a wonderfully long "fresh board" The clams in butter and wine were extraordinary! The sturgeon and salmon plates were excellent, if slightly overdone. The wine? King Estate Pinot Gris, the King of Oregon Pinot Gris! Just right with our fish - dry but slightly fruity. What a pleasure! Sort of the anti- corporate restaurant straight out of the 1960s
