About Silvan Ridge Winery
Silvan Ridge Winery was established in 1979 as one of a handful of young
Oregon wineries. Located in the Southern Willamette Valley outside of Eugene, Oregon, our family owned and operated winery produces the most unique and distinctive array of wines in Oregon.
Striving to capture the diversity of Oregon's viticulture, Silvan Ridge Winery sources only the finest fruit from independent growers within the Willamette Valley and Rogue Valley Appellations. Through careful vineyard cultivation, vinification of small, separate lots, and meticulous blending, Silvan Ridge embodies wines that are rich, aromatic, flavorful and delicious.
Located just fifteen miles southwest of downtown Eugene, our view overlooking the rolling hills covered in vines provides a perfect backdrop for your run and brunch! Read more about Silvan Ridge Winery
Our hosts at Silvan Ridge are Cathie (Marketing Assistance) and Angela Bennett, Silvan's Manager. Angela lettered in softball at the University of Washington, where she was known for her speed in the outfield. Additionally, she earned second-team all-academic Pac-10 Conference honors. She still plays softball -- the slow-pitch variety -- for a championship city league team.

About Off The Waffle
If you have never had Off The Waffle fare, you are in for a treat. They are right when they say you should forget everything you know about waffles when you try them. These are waaay different. As in better. As in amazing. Liege waffles are made from a yeast-based dough containing imported Belgian pearled sugar, which caramelizes throughout the waffle due to its high melting point. This caramelization effect is the secret that gives the waffles the unique flavor and essence that may flatter, impress, delight, empower, and maybe even confuse you.
