We're frequently asked if we host tastings. The short answer: yes.
The long answer: tastings mean different things to different wine fans. We don't regularly schedule the kind of tastings where you can show up within a several-hour window and taste with a winemaker or importer. After many years, we've found them to be impersonal and not entirely our style.
Instead, we prefer custom wine tastings, tailored to your specific preferences. We can accommodate groups of up to 12 and will discuss with you the focus of the tasting and the kinds of wines you'd like to taste. Want to bring a group of friends or colleagues? Have family visiting and you don't know what else to do in Portland on a rainy day? Email or call and we'll discuss options.
Make sure you always get a discount by using Build a Case. How it works:
If you haven't found a full case (12 bottles) to buy today, start your Build a Case now by purchasing a few bottles online, by phone or email. If you order online, select the Build a Case option. If by phone or email, just ask us to add the bottles to a Build a Case for you. You'll receive order confirmation and we'll cellar the wines for you at no charge.
Add to your case whenever you see wines you can't resist. Each time you add to your Build a Case, you'll be charged the discounted price.
When you complete your case, we'll apply a shipping rate and contact you to schedule your case for shipment.
Because of finite space in our warehouse, we kindly ask that you complete your Build a Case within six months. Please email or call us with any questions.
