We had an absolute blast at dinner this Saturday. It was a five course wine dinner with wine from brunello di montalcino. Outstanding food, the wine was a worldly treat and for the two of us, who had been to Montalcino, we were immediately transported back to our trip together. Dario accommodated my gluten allergy perfectly and I felt like a queen. :)

Agrivino, tucked away in the wine country near Carlton is delightful, cozy and very comfortable.
Our meals were incredible. The chef's talent and passion for his craft were clearly shown in his attention to detail and explanation before each course. His wine paring was fantastic. All of our expectations were surpassed. Dario and Sheena are fantastic!

We were heading from the coast to Forest Grove and we were looking for a place to eat a late lunch/early dinner before our flight home. As we neared Forest Grove we were running out of options. Tripadviser lead us to this quaint restaurant.

The GPS sent us on dirt roads....and my husband was getting frustrated. Finally we decided we must be heading to a vineyard, which could be problematic since we do not drink alcohol. We continued on, and ultimately arrived at AgriVino, which is in the middle of farmland. The fall colors on the grapevines in the rolling hills is spectacular. The hills are ablaze in golds. If only the restaurant's windows faced the beauty of the area, instead of the parking lot.

On entering Agrivino we thought we were in a wine tasting room. There are a small number of tables in the center of the room, a wine tasting bar at one end, and wine bottles along a side wall. The restaurant is quite unique, and very relaxing. We were asked about reservations and we advised we were driving through the area looking for a quick bite to eat before dropping our daughter off at college and heading to the airport. We were told the tables were all booked, but since we were early, and only looking for a quick bite to eat, they could accommodate us before the tables filled.

It was Pizza and Gnocchi night. We enjoyed their l pizza of the day, a special cheese and salami, along with a pizza with prosciutto and asparagus. We ordered a bolognese gnocchi. While the friendly waitress recommended three dishes, in actuality one pizza and the gnocchi would have been enough. The gnocchi serving isn't large but it was enough for each of us to have a small portion. I don't usually like gnocchi, but I loved Dario's gnocchi. The pizza tasted just like in Italy. The crust was light and the tomato sauce wasn't overpowering. My daughter ended up taking home the left over pizza.

We were just about to pay the bill when Dario came over and I mentioned I felt like I had made a quick trip to Italy and the food was so good. He mentioned the wine in Italy and we advised we don't drink, instead we love to eat homemade Gelato. We learned they have a contract with a gelato maker and they recommended the Black Forest Gelato, triple chocolate and cherries. Oh my goodness it was heaven. My husband enjoyed Nutella gelato, and he said it was as good as our favorite gelato in Rome.

My husband was so glad he continued on the dirt road. We really felt as though we spent an hour in Italy. It was pure heaven.

We chose to eat at AgriVino on Sunday for Pizza and Gnocchi day. We enjoyed a fresh Margarita pizza ad two types of gnocchi. The environment was cute and interestingut located in the middle of no where. Italian wine was the choice of drinks.
We enjoyed a great meal with a friendly server!
