Love wine, but want it made more fun and approachable while building community and making friends at the same time?
Some events are serious. Many are not. The wines used have a focus on "organic grape growing & no yeast added winemaking", but a new language for "pairing" is what's front and center and used to pick the wines for many of the events. If you described a friend as "bold, courageous & misunderstood", our job is to pair a wine so you could taste those words! That lets us pair wines to anything you can describe with adjectives!
Expect events featuring wines paired to movie & TV characters, your astrological sign, different events, songs and who knows what.
In addition food and wine pairing events will happen regularly.
My name is Jeff Weissler and I'm a life long wine-know who got tired of the pretension common with wine and wanted to make it fun to learn, play, and kinda use wine as a metaphor for life.
Events occur at Pairings Portland Wine Shop & Bar (for now), which is my spot I opened for the above purpose about 5 years ago.
Hope you decide to come check out a fun community, have some good times, and make a friend (or 12) :)
