Upcoming Event: Indie Wine Fest

We're so excited that it's almost time for one of our favorite wine events of the year, the Indie Wine Festival. This year's event, kicks off in exactly a month, May 1–2. It's always a great chance to meet winemakers and taste wines from some of Oregon's most exciting craft wineries, many of whom release their wines for the first time at the festival. The Portland Wine Project (and joint venture between Boedecker Cellars and Grochau Cellars) will be hosting the event, which will provide a fun opportunity for guests to see an independent winery operation firsthand. This is the signature event for the Indie Wine Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to promoting craft winemaking in Oregon, and all net proceeds from the festival benefit the foundation. Tickets are on sale now, so be sure to get yours soon, as they tend to sell out quickly. We hope to see you there!
