Big Sip Oregon

There is a brand new event kicking off this year in Portland. The event, named Big Sip Oregon will feature unique wines and educational classes on March 5, 2011. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample hand selected wines that would generally not be available to purchase in stores, making it an irresistible gathering to pass up for the avid wine buyers. The event includes 15 wine samples, a gourmet cheese plate, live music by Jim Fisher, and the option to purchase wine at deep discounts.

The event will also feature educational seminars lead by Marc Hinton (a.k.a. Enobytes & Oregon Live Wine Bytes).  His sessions will include three classes, including How to Tell if Wine is Corked, How to Buy for, Organize and Stock a Well Balanced Wine Collection, and Wine Shelf Life.

Where: Double Tree Lloyd Center, 1000 NE Multonomah Street, Portland Oregon

When: March 5, 12:00 noon – 4:00 p.m.

Tickets: Visit the website for more information and to purchase tickets.

    Thanks Hannah! I’ve heard of Pelter but I don’t think I’ve had it. I’ll have to check it out. I also have yet to eat at Uri Buri, which I need to remedy!
