Members of the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers will gather at Portland’s Governor Hotel on Thursday, April 19, for the highly-anticipated “Mountains to Metro” wine tasting, where 35 distinctive benchmark and boutique wineries, from Chehalem Mountains and Ribbon Ridge will share new and current releases. Cuisine partners include top local restaurants with an exciting and eclectic range of contemporary dishes. Tickets for this popular event are now on sale online at Mountains to Metro.

To the point, we will share classic Pinot Noirs along with great Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Syrah, Riesling and more.”
