Hawkins Cellars

Hawkins Cellars tasting room, more wine from our fine Columbia Gorge, right next to Cathedral Ridge tasting room in Dundee.

Notice the fine tapas plate they had available anyone needing a snack

What a lovely patio for a picnic.  Let me tells yas, Dundee is not much to look at during (what HST would call) this our Foul Year of our Lord 2018.  It looks like a bunch of accidents and abandoned half-born dreams between convenience stores and scruffy parking lots.

Sure, you may object to that and there are clear exceptions like Argyle and of course, Lumpy’s, and I think we can be certain that the town will be very different in 10 – 20 years, but for now Dundee presents itself as a place that feels like it’s run by a city council with a mutual death-grip around the necks of elderly land-owners and they’re all going down together rather than let change happen.

So, what a pleasant surprise to find this lovely oasis right on the main drag.   Heck, you might even be convinced to enjoy a lovely afternoon hour or two right here instead of bopping over the speedbump of Dundee on your way to somewhere else.

Why look, they even have a sense of humor – the koi pond is inhabited by a fine plastic lizard.
