Toast the start of summer by sipping rosé and several white wines made by wineries in the Northern Willamette Valley. Rosé in the Rose City, a sanctioned Rose Festival event, celebrates rosé, an often-misunderstood wine. Today’s rosé wines run the gamut from very dry with high acid levels to the sweeter styles reminiscent of the past.
On the evening of June 14 at Montgomery Park in NW Portland, 18 wineries will be pouring their favorite wines for hot, summer days. Attendees will enjoy not only Rosés but also Pinot gris, Chardonnay and sparkling wines paired with complementary foods and a souvenir wine glass to take home. All wines will be available for purchase and there will be special discounts on cases.
Join Portland’s winery neighbors to the west for a wonderful event from 5-8pm on Thursday, June 14 at Montgomery Park, 2701 NW Vaughn Street, Portland. Tickets for Rosé in the Rose City are $25 and can be purchased in advance. Visit www.nwvintners.org to buy your tickets or call (503) 941-0609 for more information.
