Celebrating Oregon Wine

To kick off Oregon Wine Month, the Oregon Wine Board set loose more than 80 wineries on Portland’s Leftbank Annex on April 29 for an evening of unforgettable tastings all under one roof. With representatives from all the wine regions across the state, the tasting event, UnWine’d, served up samples to celebrate the industry and everyone’s love for the Oregon grown and Oregon made drink.

From Pinot Noir to Syrah, Chardonnay and Roses, I couldn’t image a better way to celebrate than with a glass. I drove up from Eugene after running the Eugene Marathon half to enjoy wine and merriment with my fellow wine lovers. The highlights of the night for me included:

Additionally the event kept the tummies happy as well with delicious bite-sized food by Oregon restaurants. Two of my favorite were Nora’s Table with its pecan ganache bar and Urban Farmer’s Oregon lamb shoulder with quinoa.

To continue the celebration all month long, pick up a bottle of Oregon wine at your local market or wine store and drink-up and enjoy!
