About PDX Urban Wineries

PDX Urban Wineries was founded in 2011 by six wineries hand-crafting wine in the Portland metro area. The group has already grown to nine winery members, with more joining each year. Using grapes from all over the Pacific Northwest, these wineries crush grapes and make world-class wine within the city limits.

Their wines include Pinot Noir, of course, but go well beyond the local favorite. Step into the urban tasting rooms and sample locally made Cabernet, Zinfandel, Syrah, Mourvedre, amonth other reds and blends. On the whiter side of the bottle, Chardonnay, Pinot blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris make their appearance. For those who can’t decide, dry Rose and blush wines are available for uncorking. Regardless of the varietal at PDX Urban Wineries we make the grapes do the commuting.

    It’s her 50th Birthday. We attended a couple years ago and loved conversing with the winemakers. Even made it a habit to visit a couple of the winemakers after the event. This would make a great addition to her birthday party

  3. Mayolee May 28, 2014 at 12:32 pm #

    I would like to win because whiskey has taken over my life. Wine was such a better friend to me

  4. Michelle May 28, 2014 at 1:01 pm #

    We LOVE wine and LOVE Portland. This would be a great opportunity to explore our own backyard and support local business!

  5. Courtney May 28, 2014 at 1:14 pm #

    This sounds great! I would love to taste some different wines and buy some new bottles.

  12. Carrie E May 28, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Just relocated from Charleston, SC. One of the reasons I moved was for Oregon wine (seriously!) Also for cooler summers for my 3-legged greyhound. I’d love to attend and hopefully find an Urban wine club in addition to my WVV one. This would also be a great graduation gift – I just finished my PharmD!

  13. Leslie May 28, 2014 at 5:24 pm #

    An event that gives us the opportunity to support local business and enjoy our wonderful Portland while drinking a variety of wines? YAY

  15. KAREN Mc May 29, 2014 at 8:16 am #

    The PDX Urban Wine Experience would be the perfect solution for me ! I love drinking wine & cooking but am not savy and need to learn about wine & what foods it compliments. This will be fun & educational. Please make me a winner!!

  16. Kacy May 29, 2014 at 9:08 am #

  17. prixton May 29, 2014 at 9:42 am #

    I love wine but I’m still not as well acquainted with Portland’s wines as I would like to be, since moving here a little over a year ago. I would absolutely love the opportunity to attend!

  18. Mollie May 29, 2014 at 10:00 am #

  28. Bob May 29, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    Good to know you don’t need a car to get to great wine!!

  29. Karen Gillis May 29, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    Can’t afford as many tastings as I’d like, so this would be a great way to check out some new territory, on the road to getting my sommelier certification!

  30. Jessica May 29, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

    This would be such a good date to go on!!! I hope I get to go!

  31. Matt May 29, 2014 at 3:47 pm #

  34. Linda May 29, 2014 at 3:52 pm #

  37. Chris May 29, 2014 at 4:01 pm #

    This would make turning a year older worth it!

  38. dana May 29, 2014 at 4:02 pm #

    This would be such a fantastic and mind blowing event. Would be so delighted and grateful to attend. Thank you kindly!

  39. Molly Whitney May 29, 2014 at 4:04 pm #

    I’d love to attend this event with my partner who just moved here from DC… she’s heard all about our amazing OR wines and this seems like just the event to attend to explore many different wineries and varietals – plus it’s right here in PDX! We’d love the chance to attend with some free tix from PDX Pipeline.

  40. Stephanie May 29, 2014 at 4:18 pm #

    Maybe this could teach me to distinguish those zins from a pinot noir?

  41. Marissa May 29, 2014 at 4:27 pm #

    This sounds wonderful, it has been too long since I’ve been to something like this and I’d love to go!

  42. Gaby May 29, 2014 at 4:30 pm #

  46. Ashley T May 29, 2014 at 4:41 pm #

    There are so many awesome little wineries around here that I still have yet to try. This would solve that with one event!

  47. Jason Inscho May 29, 2014 at 4:41 pm #

  50. Julie H May 29, 2014 at 4:52 pm #

    Since I don’t have friends or family here and am on a limited income, I try to find interesting and inexpensive things to do to get me out of my apartment. This would be a very nice event for me to attend and a good way to get to know some of the local wines and wineries.

  51. michelle May 29, 2014 at 5:25 pm #

  57. Aaron May 29, 2014 at 7:37 pm #

    Wine, yes, but Crown Paella and Tabor Bread! Mmm!

  58. Lisa May 29, 2014 at 8:01 pm #

  66. Alexandra Gray May 30, 2014 at 1:16 am #

    I love wine, and have never gone to an event like this before (mostly because I can never afford to go to events like this…) and REALLY want to go… I never win anything (literally. I’ve never won a contest like this or any other before. Ever.) so it’d be REALLY cool if you picked me! :-D

  67. panda May 30, 2014 at 2:46 am #

    local wines, outstanding hal

  68. Andrea May 30, 2014 at 9:11 am #

    Wine is a beautiful thing of which I love. The many versions of grapes and the many difference in flavors is something I long for. I want this!

  82. Patrick May 31, 2014 at 6:04 am #

    I only recently moved here and have been exploring the wines–which are, among many, one of the excellent reasons to live in the area. It would be great to make even more tasty finds.

    • Patrick June 3, 2014 at 9:30 am #

      Ooops, thought my phone screwed up and didn’t send this one. Didn’t mean to enter twice. Feel free to delete this one. Thanks!

  83. Patrick May 31, 2014 at 7:59 am #

    Having recently moved here, I have found many things in the Pacific Northwest that make me very happy, but I have to say that at the top of the list is discovering excellent new wines: there are so many to be had in this area. I’m looking forward to seeing what this event will surprise me with.

  84. kyler dressel May 31, 2014 at 10:48 am #

    I love taking tours of the valley and gorge wineries, but I’ve never explored the cities’ wineries. This would be a blast!

  93. Frank N June 2, 2014 at 10:54 pm #

    Never gone wine sampling before!! I have to try this!

  94. Tara June 3, 2014 at 9:59 am #

    An urban wine experience, plus food! What could be better on a Sunday afternoon?

  95. Mike June 3, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

    Would love to attend this experience as a stepping platform for myself as I know very little about wine, and would love to use this as an opportunity to educate myself and become more familiar with wine and wine culture!

  96. Carson June 3, 2014 at 5:44 pm #

    Not for me, but this is too perfect for my roommates.
    Wine and food makes their life complete.
    Wine… I’ll just never understand it.

  125. Leslie Gale June 6, 2014 at 10:51 am #

    For those of us who love celebrating the Rose Festival but hate the crowds – This would be such a nice finale to the celebration of Roses, and who doesn’t love Portland City and Wine (together its even better!)

  126. Cornelia June 6, 2014 at 12:21 pm #

    Free+wine=2 of my favorite things!!!

  127. Michael Braim June 6, 2014 at 1:31 pm #
