New passport offers urban winery tastings // (c) PDX Urban Wineries
Oenophiles no longer need to trek into the Willamette Valley to try locally made wines while visiting Portland, thanks to the newly released PDX Urban Winery Passport.
The $20 passport serves as a guide to the lion’s share of urban wineries in Portland. It provides participants with free tastings at eight of the city’s wineries in addition to a 10 percent discount on bottled wine purchased that day, and it includes space for tasting notes.
The wineries include Alchemy Wine Productions, ENSO Winery, Hip Chicks do Wine, Jan-Marc Wine Cellars, Seven Bridges Winery and the Southeast Wine Collective, which is home to Division Winemaking Company, Helioterra Wines and Vincent Wine Company.
In addition, discounts to passport holders are available at several restaurants and retailers including Noble Rot, Blackbird Wine, Cyril’s at Clay Pigeon, The Meadow and The Bent Brick. There are even discounts for PDX Pedicab and Portland Short Bus to help sippers get around town for a day of tasting.
The PDX Urban Winery Passport follows in the footsteps of the popular Distillery Row Passport, which offers a similar program for seven local spirits distilleries.
