(Almost) every Wednesday the Hotel Vintage Plaza (422 SW Broadway) hosts a “Wine Wednesday” wine tasting. A winery representative conducts the tasting and gives a wine education presentation. Appetizers are provided, usually by the adjacent Pazzo Ristorante. It begins at 6pm (which is conveniently when Pazzo’s happy hour ends).
The cost is only $10 and it’s open to the general public (as well as hotel guests of course). There’s a limited number of spots, so they recommend reservations; you can call the hotel at 503 228 1212.
Below are some specifics about August tastings:
- Aug. 1st – Bishop Creek
- Aug. 8th – Natura Wines from Banfi
- Aug. 15th – Spain in a Day
- Aug. 22nd – Cottonwood Winery
- Aug. 29th – Wente Winery
I’ve known about Wine Wednesdays for a while, but haven’t been able to get down there for one yet, but this month I intend to hit a couple.
