After you've loaded your trunk with a variety of varietals from the many great wine producers in the Willamette Valley AVA, stop in to Nick's Italian Cafe (521 NE 3rd St in historic downtown) to conclude your journey with a memorable meal.  Starting this week you can conclude your  five star, five course prix fixe feast with a special signature espresso I'm now making for the restaurant.  I promise you will be very happy! 

N.B. March 17....I went there last week for with my Oregon Symphony buds Joe Berger and Greg Ewer for looks great after they remodeled and expanded the dining they're open 6 days a week for lunch as well as dinner.  Amazing food.  Chefs Eric and Carmen are utilizing the wood-burning oven for all manner of things, and the pizza are just spectacular.  We shared a speck and arugula pie, an opener of their house-made salume (sopressata, salami, cotto, prosciutto), hand-made and cut tagliatelle with an awesome gorgonzola sauce, and a panini of mouth-watering tri-tip.  Insanely good stuff, makes me stoopiddrool thinking back on it. Eric promised to let me pull some shots of my extra-special espresso next time.
