Pinot in Portland

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Can't make it to wine country? The Hotel Vintage Plaza just launched a new package that lets oenophiles have an Oregon wine experience in downtown Portland.

At check in, you'll get a bottle of the hotel's private label Oregon pinot noir and two Riedel crystal glasses. You get to taste in the comfort of your hotel suite, jotting notes down in the wine journal provided with the package.

You'll get an Italian/Oregon pinot noir comparison flight at Pazzo Ristorante next to the hotel, and if you like, schedule a private session with the restaurant's wine director.

The best part is the hands-on blending class for two at Urban Wineworks. You even get to take home a carafe of your special wine blend.

How much does it cost?

Package rates, including overnight accommodations for two, start at $289.

The hotel is at 422 S.W. Broadway in downtown Portland.

Even if you don't get the package, the hotel offers a free nightly wine-tasting event for all guests.
