While a jaunt through beautiful Willamette Valley wine country – just 30 minutes outside of Portland – is always recommended, an influx of urban wineries is letting Portlanders visit tasting rooms and meet winemakers without ever leaving city limits. The city’s oldest winery, Hip Chicks Do Wine, opened in 1999, and more than a dozen wineries have since followed suit.

The group also plans quarterly “Wine Weekends,” during which member wineries offer discounted tastings and specially-crafted pours.
