Wines; Tasted! has reviewed Vinland.
Bottom line for me is that David is an idealistic and passionate guy with some lofty goals. I’ve had some really good food at Vinland and as the restaurant refines what they do it should keep improving. David’s put himself out there and sacrificed a lot to open Vinland, like all chef owners do. I feel that when someone believes in something that strongly and invests so much of themselves into it, they deserve a fair open minded chance. Chef owners as a rare entrepreneurial breed and I respect them all very much. Vinland and it’s philosophy is a great addition to Portland’s fantastic food culture and it’s something you should go and make up your own mind about.
