Events > PORTLAND GRAND TASTING
We’re bringing the Columbia Gorge tasting experience to Portland!
Sample award-winning wines from 20+ wineries, all pouring under the same roof for one night only. We invite you to discover Columbia Gorge wine and experience the expression of 40 miles of intense geography and transitioning climates.
Nestled between the majestic peaks of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams, the Gorge Wine Region is defined by the Columbia River as it cuts through the Cascade range. This dramatic transition in landscape and climate is enhanced by the cool moisture flowing eastward from the ocean, bringing 35 inches of rain per year to the eastern foothills of the Cascades but as little as 10 inches to the region’s arid eastern end. This combination of dynamic climate and intrepid, passionate winemaking beckons you to find out why many are calling the Columbia Gorge wine country the most exciting wine region in the Northwest!
General Admission includes complimentary tastings from all attending wineries, light hors-d'ouevres, and a commemorative wine glass to keep.
For those wanting a more intimate and elevated experience, we recommend a VIP ticket to gain early admission and access to private VIP balcony.
* Must be 21+ to attend. Proof of age required at check-in. Tickets are non-refundable.
** Trade tasting to wholesale and retail wine distributors and press only. Please present a valid business card at event check-in. We reserve the right to charge admission to non-trade attendees.
