Portalis Wines Events

Come check out the new Portalis Tasting Room (pictured above)! Full of wine maps and wine tasting ambience, it's a wonderful place to talk and taste and learn about wine. Please join us at any of the tastings listed below:


Regional Rendezvous 
Stay tuned for details on our upcoming Thursday tasting from 5-7pm.

Luck of the Draw Tasting
Join Fridays to taste whatever random selection of wines Portalis owner Jens Strecker happens to be pouring.  Who knows?! Maybe Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Maybe a WA Syrah. Maybe an Austrian Grüner Veltliner. Stop by to taste & learn. Tasting runs 5-7pm every Friday.

Tempranillo - A Classic Summer Red
Why is Tempranillo such a great summer wine? It's (by nature) medium-bodied (so not heavy on a summer day) and it tends to have lighter tannins (so it won't go bitter on you when you enjoy your spicy, sweet BBQ!). We'll have an interesting spread available to taste on Saturday, including: 2 from Rioja (Zuazo Gaston Crianza & Senorio Fenojal Reserva), 1 from Ribera del Duero (Bodegas Rauda Roble) and a great little competitor from the greater area of Castilla y Leon (Casto Pequeno Cotoval). Tasting runs 12-4pm.
Sunday, May 31
BBQ Wines
BBQ is one of the great American dishes of summer, but it can be down right ticky with wine! The salty sweet of the sauce often makes wine taste tart or bitter, but it doesn't have to be! Join to taste 3 selections that would taste great with BBQ ...and we'll even tell you why! Tasting list: Zinfandel (Four Vines), rosé (Corte Giacobbe Ramato) & cava (Bodegas Maset NU Reserva). Tasting runs 12-4pm. Hope you can swing by!
