There are only a few days left of Oregon Wine Month, but there is still plenty of Oregon wine left to drink!
This month, more than 150 participating restaurants in Portland and beyond are featuring exclusive Oregon wine flights, discounted bottles and unique by-the-glass pours. Now is a perfect time to experience how food-friendly Oregon wine is! Dozens of retail locations are in on the action as well with special Oregon wine tasting events and discounted bottles and cases, making it easier than ever to take Oregon wine home with you.
The Oregon Wine Board calendar has over 300 events listed for Oregon Wine Month, and it’s not too late to attend some! We are about to enter one of the biggest wine tasting weekends of the year, Memorial Day Weekend, packed with music, food pairings, cellar specials and open house events at tasting rooms usually only open by appointment.
