Wine Lover's Guide to Portland

Posted by Margot Bigg on September 5, 2016 at 9:15:00 AM EDT | Post a Comment


For those looking for a wine experience in or around Portland, here are a few of the best places to explore Oregon’s internationally celebrated wine culture. Straddled between two of Oregon’s major wine-producing areas (namely the Willamette Valley and the Columbia River Gorge), Oregon’s major city is an excellent spot to begin your exploration of the state’s wine offerings.

There are numerous wineries around the city. The best known of these, Hip Chicks Do Wine, has been offering wine tastings and special events since 2001. Other wine-lovers’ hotspots include the SE Wine Collective, which offers custom crush services for area wineries along with tastings, food pairings, and special events. Just up the road, Division Winemaking Company offers primarily pinots noirs and chardonnays, with most of their varietals originating in the Willamette Valley; just call in advance to make an appointment. From here, it’s a five-minute drive to one of the city’s newest urban wineries, the Teutonic Wine Company, which produces Alsatian and German-style wines from Oregon-grown grapes.

For a proper sit-down meal paired with wines, your best bet is TeSóAria Vineyard & Winery's Portland Tasting Room, which features innovative pairings and special events ranging from Sunday brunches to ever-so Portland vegan wine pairing nights. The award-winning winery also offers sparkling wine on tap—microbrew style—and guests who want to take some bubbly home can buy it by the growler.


Hotel Vintage

Call it a night at downtown Portland’s wine-inspired Hotel Vintage, which features 117 guest rooms, each named after a different local winery. The hotel offers hosted wine hours every evening, and the concierge can arrange private tours to the Willamette Valley wine country complete with food pairings and local expert guides.
