Forbes has published an article about Portland Wine Week which is taking place next week, June 17 -23.
What sets Portland apart as a wine-lover’s destination? Portland restaurants lean towards small boutique wineries for their wine lists–wines that are not big volume production and that are really delicious and have a unique story to tell. [And] a healthy number of wine distributors who are very passionate about the wines in their portfolio. …. There’s also a lot of focus on increasing one’s own wine knowledge among restaurant hospitality professionals here, in order to help customers understand the wine lists and to understand it themselves.
