WELCOME
what makes portland so special? Some will tell you it’s
all about the trees, fresh air and proximity to the mountains,
rivers and ocean. Others think the indie music and arts scenes
define our particular brand of cool. We’re also partial to the
amazing food and drink you’ll find here.
How can one place have so much going on? Come find
out for yourself.

Portland’s acclaimed cuisine tastes best when
accompanied by the region’s outstanding craft

and “Munich on the Willamette,” Portland has upwards of 65
breweries — more than any other city on earth.

WINE
Prime growing conditions and favorable soils have fostered
Oregon’s rapid emergence over the past 35 years as one of the
world’s finest wine-growing regions. While more than 40 varietals
are grown in Oregon, pinot noir is the state’s signature grape.
Oregon also consistently earns top honors for other cool-climate
varieties such as Dijon clone chardonnay and pinot blanc.
The scenic Willamette Valley wine country is a 30-minute drive
from downtown, making winery tours a popular activity for Portland visitors (see p. 33 for details). You’ll also find more than 15
wineries in Portland (see pdxurbanwineries.com). For a complete
guide to Oregon wineries, visit oregonwine.org.
CRAFT SPIRITS
Inspired by local brewing and winemaking traditions, the
Portland area’s dozen or so craft distillers produce top-notch,
small-batch spirits, all with distinctly local flavors. From eau de
vie to whiskey, these products are meant to be savored. Many
local bars feature made-in-Portland spirits on their cocktail lists.
Several distillers are concentrated on Portland’s inner eastside,
in an area dubbed Distillery Row (distilleryrowpdx.com). On
weekends, visitors can taste samples from all of these artisans in
a single walking tour. A passport (distilleryrowtours.com) offers
savings on tastings, plus other local deals.
