More Info:

Hillsdale Main Street is pleased to announce Hillsdale’s 2013 wine and food pairing event: Wine About Winter. By the beginning of February, most Portlanders are just plain tired of the rain and the cold. Hillsdale wants to offer a reprieve from the dreariness of Portland winters, by providing a warm, cozy place for neighbors to get together around wine and food. Purchase Tickets HERE.

On Sunday, February 10, 2013, over 500 attendees will cozy up together to taste wines that are not mass distributed from 25+ wineries, and enjoy local nibbles and live music. Executive Chef Earl Johnson from Korkage Wine Bar & Shop, who has 20+ years of cooking and teaching experience including a period at the Statler Hotel at Cornell University in New York, one of the foremost hospitality schools, will curate wine and food pairings to tease the palate and give great ideas for home tasting. Scent and soil stations will help expand guests wine palates, and the cozy atmosphere will ensure a wonderful time.

Volunteers receive FREE admission into the event! Learn more here!

    Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a winter day in Oregon. Would love to win the tickets!

  2. Erika February 4, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    I’ve been trying to find a way to introduce my local craft beer loving boyfriend to the wonderful world of wine! This would also be a lovely early Valentines date, as it’s the only weekend we have off together in the next month. It’d be a great excuse to come explore the Hilldale area too! <3

    I have some wining to do this winter! I need to let it out… and let it in…

    In addition, Hillsdale is my neighborhood, and I would walk – just think of the carbon emissions saved by choosing humble me!

    This is a great little neighborhood, and I’d like to support a community event. My wining will turn to joyous toasting and celebrating! Guaranteed!

  6. Tony February 4, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

    I’m heading out to Portland to visit friends and family that weekend and would love to take the group out to the event, try some of the wines and explore the area!

    I’d LOVE to go. Can’t afford tickets on a non-profit salary :-S

  19. Naomi February 5, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    My fiancée and I moved to Portland in September for his college choice and a beautiful change in scenery. Since we are new to the area and both have a love for wine we’d be so excited to attend! Also, I just secured a new job! The biggest reason we should be picked is because my fiancée does not get a legit break to relax…he is constantly studying for classes. For example, tonight is our 3year anniversary and we had a nice dinner but the rest of the night he will be studying for two tests tomorrow. We need a good excuse to get out & spend fun quality time together & enjoy the awesome events Portland has to offer.

  20. Claire February 6, 2013 at 7:41 am #

    I want to win so I can enjoy local nibbles. Yum!

    I love wine tasting and especially when it is paired with fine foods, so pick me and I’ll bring my girlfriend who is a true wine lover. If I win I will also invite a few other friends to join us for a marvelous afternoon of wining and dining. What a wonderful way to start out Valentine’s Week!

  54. Jody C February 7, 2013 at 9:14 pm #

    This is something that I would love to attend, but am pregnant and my brother and sister in law love to attend wine events. She has been thinking about how to pair her wines with dinners when we go there and this just seems perfect for them. They do not get out much and this being the event it is seems heaven sent. Please consider them for this.

  55. Katie February 7, 2013 at 9:40 pm #

    Wine and yummy food. I want to go to this!

  56. Shannon February 7, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

  61. Ann February 8, 2013 at 7:32 am #

    I love wine tasting, especially at special events like this with food pairings & fun atmosphere. My boyfriend works until late on Valentine’s day, so this would be a nice way to celebrate. Plus, my birthday is next weekend & I will be out of town for a week… Last year he took the day off from work and we spent the day wine tasting at local vineyards, he is quite bummed about me not being around to do it again this year… Would be a great to surprise him with this early birthday fun to make up for it. Valentines, birthday, wine tasting… What could be better?! :)

  62. Kellie February 8, 2013 at 7:38 am #

    I saw this event 2 months ago advertised in a store and then completely forgot to go home and buy tickets. We would love to go and support Oregon wineries!

  63. libby February 8, 2013 at 7:52 am #

    Yes please, in need of something fun to cheer a friend up!

  64. Bianca February 8, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    You should pick my boyfriend and I because we live in this neighborhood but can’t afford to go to the events held here. :( We’ll put up pictures and tweet about it– I’ve already introduced two friends to your site!

  65. laura February 8, 2013 at 8:27 am #

    What a grape time! Get it? ha ha ha! I would love to this. Obviously with jokes like that I need more contact with other people.

  66. Bobbie February 8, 2013 at 9:55 am #

    Tired of beer. Want wine!

  67. Kimi February 8, 2013 at 11:00 am #

  72. Gretchen February 8, 2013 at 3:01 pm #

    Pick me! Now that I’m not flying to the east coast tomorrow I need something fun to do.

  73. Chris February 8, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    This looks like an activity that will help nurture my twin addictions of alcohol and things happening on Main Streets.

  74. tali poretis February 8, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    I love wine and it would be great to share the event w/someone who would appreciate it as well.

  75. Shannon February 9, 2013 at 11:46 am #

    Nothing better than an event of wining and dinning. Being a lover and presenter of both, and new to the Portland community, I would love tickets to expand my local knowledge for myself and to pass along fab recommendations to others. Please choose me for these tickets. I will appreciated and lavish every moment.

  76. Leonard January 27, 2014 at 8:25 pm #
