Katherine Cole of the Oregonian wrote a great article last week about Oregon rosé. Her point being that rosé isn't just for summer sipping anymore. Pinot Noir rosé is a great accompaniment to fresh fall cuisine, it's just as food friendly as it's big brother pinot noir and usually half the price.
If you're a local or visiting Portland, here are some sweet spots to sit and savor some good Oregon bounty paired with good Oregon pinot noir rosé...
Many of our favorite local restaurants and wine shops have been supportive of our 2007 Cuvée A Pinot Noir rosé all year long. Sip it by the glass with one of chef Troy MacLarty's amazing creations at Lovely Hula Hands on North Mississippi or with one of the organic and delicious vegetarian selections at The Farm Café off Burnside at SE 7th. Try it at Amalie Roberts sweet little wine bar Kir on NE 7th with her famous smoked trout. Amalie is a true lover of rosé offering up to 10 by the glass at times! You can also find it by the glass or by the bottle at the french bistro Sel Gris. Located in Ladd's Addition on Hawthorne, this restaurant has amazing dishes best enjoyed sitting at the bar counter where you can watch chef Daniel Mondok working his magic in the kitchen.
Another place to enjoy our rosé on premise is at Lupa on Mississippi, one of my favorite wine bars owned by one of my favorite wine girls. Lupa is small and intimate and a perfect place to cozy up on the fall nights ahead. And p.s. Amanda bakes and sells her own cookies too. yum.
Thanks to our Henry Wine Group rep Bonnie Crocker for sharing her love of our rosé with these accounts!
