Favorite PDX wine and cheese shops?
I'm a Bay Area hound that visits Portland regularly and is scoping out the food scene...
Where do local foodies go to purchase their boutique, hard to find (and fine) wines and cheeses (either domestic or imported), attend tastings, and find knowledgeable and passionate folk that sell cheese and wine?
Please share your favorite shopping haunts and why you love them so much!
If you're familiar with the East Bay specialty food stores, I'm wondering if there are stores in Portland like Berkeley's Cheeseboard or Oakland's Farmstead Cheeses & Wine, Paul Marcus, etc.
Thanks for sharing!
Steve's Cheese, Foster&Dobbs for the cheese part of your query and Vinopolis and Cork for the wine half. I am feeling lazy and I presume you know how to use google. You will definitely be able to find something to satisfy you at any of these places!
Liner & Elsen in the Alphabet District carries a really interesting selection of wines from local and international producers. The enthusiastic staff love to help you pair the right bottle(s) with the flavors of the table.
