Sunday, June 8, 4-7pm – 3rd Annual Portland Urban Wine Experience gala tasting and wine sale at Refuge PDX in SE Portland. This event features all members of PDX Urban Wineries, our local association of most wine producers fermenting grapes and making wine right here in the city limits of Portland. Eleven wineries pouring, with food by Crown Paella, Jacobsen Salt, Portland Creamery, Tabor Bread and more. Advance tickets $32, or $40 at the door.

Note: For the PDX Urban Wine Experience, we’ll be pouring library wines from 2010 – the Vincent Ribbon Ridge and Zenith Vineyard bottlings – and offer 24 bottles of each for sale at the event. We’ll even have a few 1.5L magnum bottles available for sale. Don’t miss out on this one time only opportunity.
