When I go to the Oregon Wine Country with Julie and Dave, they always make a stop in the town of McMinnville for either lunch or dinner at a tapas restaurant called La Rambla. You can see their street sign in the photo above.
It was my second meal at this place when we visited last May and I can see why Julie and Dave have made this a "must-stop" whenever they go to Oregon. The food is delicious, authentic Spanish cuisine and the atmosphere in the restaurant is beautiful.
I love the look of the bar with it's beautiful peacocks framing the back wall.
But, I must say it's the town itself that appeals to me. It just seems like the perfect little all-American town. It's warm and friendly and has the most appealing main street.
I snapped this shot in February of 2018 when I was there the first time. It gives a clearer picture of that main street after the trees have shed their leaves. I would love to return here and explore this city much more. I bet it has quite a lot to offer a visiting wine lover or any explorer.
