Enjoy the final dog days of summer this Saturday as you sip Southern Oregon wines in downtown Portland’s Directors Park. Winemakers and owners from the bottom half of our state want wine lovers everywhere to taste their unique wines. They’re so serious about sharing their liquid sunshine, they’re making the trek North.

Expect over 100 of the best wines from the Southern Oregon regions of the Umpqua, Applegate, Illinois & Rogue Valleys paired with delicacies prepared by some of Portland’s most exciting chefs including Kelly Myers of Xico; Lisa Herlinger and Becky Burnett of Ruby Jewel Ice Cream; Rick Gencarelli of Lardo; and Johanna Ware of Smallwares. Music played by the Gil Reynolds Band will fill the park with festive tunes. Attendees will receive a commemorative wine glass and swag bag as souvenirs of the event.
