Indie Wine Festival-Wines Announced

Check it out...I am SO excited to go to this...let me know if you are interested in being my date!

OK, we've picked the wineries for
the Portland Indie Wine & Food Festival this year
...and they're more amazing than ever

Forty wineries made the cut -- they're gearing up to pour at the festival

Portland, Ore. (4/2/2010) - The sixth annual Portland Indie Wine & Food Festival announced the names of the 40 Oregon craft wineries selected to pour their artisanal wines at the festival's Grand Tasting, to be held Saturday, May 8th from 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. in inner Northeast Portland. The 40 wineries will pour eighty-one wines in a Portland-appropriate spot - the spacious (13,000 square feet) industrial-chic Bison Building (recently home to a circus!). Plenty of room for fantastic wine as well as fantastic food served by 15 of the city's top restaurants.

"Our judges were blown away by the quality of the wines this year," said Lisa Donoughe, PIWF founder. "The 2007 vintage was a stunner vintage, and really a sleeper. The weather at harvest was such a question mark, and our winemakers stepped up to the challenge brilliantly," adds Donoughe.
