Consistently good white wines (fruit forward, but not too much residual sugar) are the hallmark here. The pinot gris and Riesling are usually quite good. LaVelle also has a tasting room/wine bar/bistro in downtown Eugene at the 5th Street Public Market, 296 E. Fifth Ave. (tel. 541/338-9875). This latter facility is a good place to start a wine tour of the area.
