If the drive away from the noise and traffic that is city life to the scenic wine estates isn’t tempting enough, think of the relaxing glass of merlot or white wine outdoors with family and friends at the end of the road. This Memorial Day weekend, the wineries are up and running at full speed. Most of the vineyards have been open throughout the spring, but Abbelone Vineyard on Christensen Road (AbbeloneWine.com) and Rain Song Vineyard in Cheshire (RainSongVineyard.com) will officially open for the summer season on the holiday weekend and complete the roster of more than a dozen wineries in Lane County that are operating.
