Pacific Northwest Pinot Availability & Food?
It's time for us to stock up again on some pinots from the Pacific Northwest. Are there any stores in the Bay area, particularly near Berkeley, who have a good selection of Oregon or Washington pinots or other PNW wines? I'm looking specifically for Adelsheim vineyards, but a few others as well.
And without having to fly to Portland, are there any SF Bay area restaurants that might specialize in PNW cooking? Thanks

As a long-time native of Portland, I'm curious to know what "PNW cooking" means to you. It's not unusual for visitors to the area to seek out uniquely NorthWestern foods, but other than planked salmon, I'm hard pressed to think of any.
Sure, there's an emphasis on fresh/local produce and an abundance of seafood, but those are hardly unique to the area, and I don't believe local preparations are noticeably different than elsewhere. Love to hear about a different perspective.
