Cori Solomon avatarCori Solomon, award-winning freelance writer/photographer, resides in Los Angeles, California. Her writing focuses on travel, art, food, wine, and pets. Cori’s background is real estate and art. Her art plays a vital role in her writing as she utilizes the palette both visually and verbally in many of her articles. Cori shares her experiences and joy of her subjects in a passionate, candid, caring and entertaining way. Like her animal art where she looks beyond the eyes to find an animal’s inner soul and spirit, Cori looks for the story that is behind the restaurant, chef, winery, winemaker or artist. As Cori often travels with her dogs, some of her travel articles deal with pet-friendly hotels and locations. Cori had a travel, wine, and pet column on Examiner.com from 2010 until they shut their doors in 2016. Currently, in addition to writing her blog, The Written Palette, she is a contributor to Big Blend Magazine, FWT Magazine and blog, SommTable, Vinely, and Wander with Wonder

Willamette Valley Vista @ Cori Solomon 
The vistas from a vineyard on a gorgeous day can bring new life to every winery. In this case it had been raining the night before and I was fortunate to get to Vidon Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA as the sky had cleared exposing puffy clouds. From a NASA scientist working on the Apollo program, Don Hagge turned his efforts into growing grapes and making wine after he retired. Mesmerized by the view, I can only imagine waking up each day to this vineyard view.
