In 1933, Honeywood winery was founded by Ron Honeyman and John Wood. It was originally called Columbia Distilleries and produced fruit brandies, cordials and liqueurs. They eventually settled on making premium wines. A winery must be close to its source of ingredients. Honeywood Winery is located in Salem, in the heart of Oregon’s great and fertile Willamette Valley, minutes away from some of the world’s finest vineyards, cane berry fields and fruit orchards. The winery produces a full line of premium vinifera wines and the most extensive listing of premium fruit and specialty wines.

The William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge is a spectacular area dedicated to preserving and maintaining natural habitats.  The refuge boasts beautiful wetlands, white oak savannas, lazy creeks, natural prairie land and a lowland ash forest that is home to a herd of elk.  As the first National Wildlife Refuge west of the Mississippi river, its primary goal serves as a wintering habitat for dusky subspecies of Canada geese.  Portions of the refuge are closed to the public while the geese are wintering, but you can check it out any other time of the year and see bald eagles, Oregon chub, Bradshaw’s desert parsley and the endangered peregrine falcons that call the refuge home.  The refuge is 10 miles south of Corvallis on Hwy 99 West and is a “must see” for every wildlife and nature enthusiast.  For more information, call 541 757-7236.

WHERE:  26208 Finley Refuge Road – Corvallis
