Looking for a place to get horizontal  during your wine tasting stay in the Willamette Valley? Try dog-friendly Brookside Inn, touted in Vertical, author Rex Pickett‘s sequel to his infamous Sideways.

Host Susan Bandstra serves up  hearty, sustainable breakfast fare and a healthy dose of serenity at her rustic B & B nestled brookside in Carlton, OR.

A long-time resident with a keen and unpretentious insight into ‘The WV”, Susan also offers a wellspring of information about local wineries, eateries, and events.

Proprietor Byron Dooley, alchemist of all things enological, offers a dozen wines in one tasting, some paired with wife Dana’s Honest Chocolates. Throughout, Byron shares his engaging acumen on various varietals, blending notes, and terroir, as well as practical food pairing suggestions. This winery’s roster of pours offer a bevy of stand-outs sure to steal your heart, including their dessert wine “Ice Princess.”
