Among the local restaurants, food carts, breweries and distilleries, we can now add wineries and wine making to the list of what makes Portland truly unique as a culinary destination. A growing number of full-production wineries now call Portland home, producing wines from grapes grown all over the Pacific Northwest—wines that rival the best in the region.
There are now 8 business making their own wine within Portland City limits. Join me for a walking and tasting tour of 5 of them. In addition, we will have a sit down wine and cheese pairing at Hip Chicks Do Wine, one of Portland's first wine makers.
Similar to the distillery tour, you will receive a passport that covers the wine and cheese pairing as well as tasting costs at all of the wineries.
Walking distance is a flat 3.5 miles, so I can't guarantee you will burn off the calories you gain over the course of the day.
Bring rain gear if it rains. All events start promptly at time indicated.
Fee is $30 drop-in, which includes tastings at all the locations we visit.
Besides waiving your basic tasting fees, the passport (included with this event) also contains one-time discounts at over 50 partner destinations.
