Get your glass ready. Here are my picks for wines to watch at Feast this year!
Feast Portland 2017 Wines to Watch
Grown in incredible terroir in eastern Washington, 14 Hands wines include big, fruit-forward reds and crisp, juicy whites. These are great wines to enjoy with dinner, with friends, and make great hostess gifts!
Find them at Feast Portland: at the Sandwich Invitational.
Adelsheim Vineyard Elizabeth’s Reserve Pinot Noir is one I seek out when I’m searching for quality wine to serve to someone who has never tried an Oregon Pinot Noir. Founded in 1971 and is one of Oregon’s few pioneering wineries that is still locally owned.
Browne Family Vineyards
Known primarily for Cabernet Sauvignon, a Bordeaux red blend and Chardonnay, Browne Family Vineyards has expanded to nine varieties sourced from the legacy vineyards of five distinctive viticultural areas within the Columbia Valley.

Cristom Vineyards began a quarter of a century ago as a collaboration between three men: an engineer, a biochemist, and a farmer. They craft elegant, dynamic wines, and I have a particular soft spot for their amazing Estate Pinot Noir.
Founded in 1984 and based in New Mexico, Gruet Winery specializes in Methode Champenoise sparkling wines. The brut rosé you see pictured above is absolutely lovely. Gruet produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay-based sparkling wines and a small collection of still wines, with roots originating from Gilbert Gruet’s Champagne house in Bethon, France.
