10 Best Urban Wineries in Portland

Picture of Katrina Nattress
Updated: 26 April 2018
These city-based establishments are changing the way we view Oregon wine country.

When someone mentions Oregon wine country, the first thing that probably comes to mind is the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley—the state’s largest wine region—and though that’s a good instinct to have, there are some city folk who are changing the way we perceive wineries in the Beaver State.

In bustling Portland, dozens of wineries have popped up within the city limits, trading in those rolling hills for a view of downtown and a rustic barn operation for warehouses outfitted with fermenting vats and barrels.

These are called urban wineries, and they’re taking the city by storm, not just because of their convenience, but also because of the variety of grapes these winemakers are able to harvest and bottle. Oregon is known for its pinots, and these 10 urban wineries offer wonderful Pinot Noir and Gris, along with so much more.

Coopers Hall is housed in an old auto body shop in Buckman neighborhood and perfectly combines two very Portland things: good wine and taprooms. The space is open, so there’s no confines between the winery and taproom, allowing patrons to observe how their wine gets made. Pair a nice selection of reds and whites on tap with dinner offerings, and you’ve got a whole night planned.

Viola Wine Cellars

Winery
Save to wishlist
Viola Wine Cellars may be Oregon-based, but its specialty is Italian-inspired wines. Though the tasting room is located on NE Alberta Street, the wines are actually made in owner Darryl Joannides’ garage in Northwest Portland. Joannides practices minimal intervention winemaking techniques, using only organic, sustainable fruit sourced mainly from the Columbia Gorge AVA. The result is a variety of mighty fine wines, including Pinot Grigio, Dolcetto and Sangiovese.

Boedecker Cellars

Winery
Save to wishlist
You didn’t think we’d make a list of Oregon wineries without featuring at least one that specialized in Pinot Noir, did you? The husband and wife duo at Boedecker Cellars began making wine in the Willamette Valley before moving operations to Northwest Portland. Luckily, they’re still only 40 miles away from the vineyards where they harvest their grapes. Aside from Pinot Noir, Boedecker Cellars also make a variety of Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, and a white blend.
