Sundance Wine Cellars: A Passion Spot for Wine in Oregon




If you are a wine aficionado and in the Eugene, Oregon area (at the south end of the Willamette Valley), one great place worth visiting is Sundance Wine Cellars. Sundance Wine Cellars combines the love of wine with a certain class and style to create something wholly unique to the area. Owner Gavin McComas has a love of great wine that is expressed in this establishment that he created years ago.

Don’t be fooled: not all great wine is grown just in California, France, or Italy! There is great wine to be had right in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. In fact, Oregon (the Willamette Valley, to be more specific) is one of the up-and-coming wine regions that is getting a lot of attention right now from wine magazines and reviewers for the quality product the region is creating of late.

Sundance Wine Cellars has many different wines to choose from. If you are into reds, they have a over 200 different Oregon Pinot Noirs! They also carry Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as well. If you are into whites they have a great Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Riesling. Sundance Wine Cellars is a great place to bring the people in your life that have never had the chance to savor a great bottle of wine because they live so far away from the common wine regions. Once they taste the wines Sundance has to offer, they’ll have a hard time going back to that $10 bottle of wine from the local liquor store, that’s for sure!

When it comes to food, Sundance Wine Cellars shines just as bright. They have some great wine and food pairings that goes hand-in-hand with the organic foods side of the shop that are sure to raise some eyebrows and get you thinking about your own pairings. It doesn’t get any better than that!

The best thing about Sundance Wine Cellars for any hardcore wine hobbyist is that the winemaker is right there in the building. These good folks know exactly what kind of wines pair the best with the various dishes out there and can suggest what sort of pairing would work best for you, depending on your preference. Quite often, you’ll find that many people really don’t have the knowledge you need to get the kind of pairing you want to give you the best experience possible witha certain dish.

Many times, when you are at a restaurant, servers simply repeat what they’ve heard others say or what they’ve been trained to say without having any real knowledge of the food and wine pairing process. You can’t always trust what you read on the Internet either when it comes to perfect pairings. The fine people at Sundance Wine Cellars really know what they’re talking about, head over and quiz them – they’ll put something together for you that will pass with flying colors!
