Great American Wine Fest! Wines of America!

The Great American Wine Festival (GAWF), a new consumer wine tasting festival. Organizers promise it will be a unique festival with wines from regions throughout North America.

I am very excited to be a Partner of the brand-new Great American Wine Festival, that will take place November 16th at the Double Tree Hotel in Portland, Oregon. The GAWF is a unique wine tasting experience featuring wines from throughout North America. Attendees will have the opportunity to taste wines from wine areas in Virginia, Ohio, and Idaho in addition to more established areas in California, Oregon, and Washington. This is all possible because the industry Wine Tourism Conference, which takes place during the prior days, will be bringing 230 of these folks to Portland.

I was able to negotiate a special discounted ticket of $30 for a regular ticket or $45 for a VIP ticket that will get you in an hour early.  Please visit the festival website at and use code PDXGAWF. There are only 400 tickets available, so don't wait!

Cheers to trying some new wines!

    For those with a VIP Ticket to GAWF, does your e-ticket say GAWF on it? Mine only says NW Food and Wine Fest, VIP Grand Tasting. Just trying to figure out which one I can enter. Thanks!

      Stephanie, there are two separate events today. One for the NW Food and Wine Fest and one for the GAWF. There is also a combined ticket. Maybe that is what you purchased?
