Oregon and Washington's beautiful landscapes aren't just pretty: They offer some of the best winemaking country in the world. Bar Avignon will show you the ropes, with a host of local wines alongside classics and youngbloods of the global scene, in an unpretentious bar and bistro setting. Everyone working there is an obvious wine geek, so don't worry if you can't even pronounce the names on the bottles. THOMAS ROSS
