About Portland

Portland is a city of neighborhoods. With more than 30 wineries and 70 breweries, nearly 30 coffee roasters, 1700 restaurants, and artisan makers of every medium, each neighborhood boasts a unique blend of vibrant artists, craftspeople, and shop-local entrepreneurs. These are neighborhoods built by neighbors. Portland offers the best of Oregon Wine without leaving the city.

Vibrant. Creative. Indomitable.

Cities aren’t usually associated with winemaking, but Portland isn’t your usual place. As the gateway to the surrounding wine country, Portland has the advantages of a modern city, in walk- and bike-ability, easy public transportation, vibrant shops and events, and one of the nation’s largest urban parks.

While there are literally hundreds of wineries within an hour of downtown, you don’t need to leave the city to experience all of Oregon. Portland winemakers let the grapes do the commuting, sourcing fruit from upwards of 15 Oregon AVAs, and producing wines from nearly every variety planted throughout the state.

Portland is the apex of artisan food and drink in the West, and the winemakers of Portland have been a part of that movement for more than 30 years, enmeshed in the culture and communities as neighbors.
