I just moved to Portland and I am now just discovering all the wonderful boutique wine shops in town. Coming from San Francisco, I am used to buying my wine at chains like BevMo.
Does anyone have any recomendation on some of the local wine shops? I like mostly CA/OR/French wines. I drink reds and whites. I like Zins, Pinot Noir, Sav Blanc, and anything that tastes good. I usually like to spend $7 - $20 a bottle.
Also, there seems to be a large number of wine tastings around town. Usually on Friday nights. Any recommendations on those. I've seen the listings in the Oregonian, but I find it a bit overwhelming. From what I've seen the prices seem a bit steep, $10 per flight of five or six wines.
I live in SE, in upper Bellmont.
