Taste Washington Portland! at Pure Space in The Pearl

Wildwood is very excited to participate in the second annual Taste Washington Portland event taking place on Monday, April 23rd. Washington State is the second largest premium wine producer in the U.S. and its wines are consistently noted for their amazing quality, great value and superb ability to stand up to their old world counterparts. As Washington wines gain accolades nationally and internationally, everybody wins! Events like Taste Washington Portland are helping to create a great reputation for the wines of the Pacific Northwest and in turn support the wine industry in both Washington and Oregon.

The event on April 23rd is taking place at Pure Space in Portland’s Pearl District. 75 Washington wineries will be pouring at the event, and a carefully curated selection of Portland’s best restaurants and culinary artisans will be on hand to serve up their most wine friendly dishes. Washington wineries large and small will be pouring their favorite varietals from silky Merlot to big, bold Cabernet, from bone dry Riesling to delicious field blended Rosé. Some of the participating restaurants include Metrovino, Laurelhurst Market, Bar Avignon, Wildwood, Cheese Bar, Chop Butchery, Alma Chocolate and Saint Cupcake. This event is designed to be fun, informative and delicious and anyone looking to expand their palate beyond the typical Oregon Pinots is sure to get bang for their buck.

When: Monday April 23, 2012

Savanna’s Wine Picks http://wildwoodrestaurant.com/Blog/savannas-wine-picks/ http://wildwoodrestaurant.com/Blog/savannas-wine-picks/#comments Fri, 06 Apr 2012 17:05:59 +0000 Wildwood http://wildwoodrestaurant.com/?p=3768

We asked our lovely Sommalier, self-titled “wine geek” Savanna Ray, where she likes to have a glass around town.

Savanna says:

I love Metrovino because they have the Enomatic Wine System. They have 90+ wines by the glass, and you can order by taste (1.75oz), glass (5.25oz) or bottle. They open some pretty cool stuff, too, because [Enomatic] preserves the wine for 30 days or more.

This allows you to get tastes of bottles that you might not normally be able to afford, like Grand Cru Burgundies, special bottlings, Chateau d’Yquem, expensive stuff.

I also love Wine Wednesdays at Paley’s Place. They do a choice of three individually priced flights with a complimentary mystery wine and special offerings to match from the kitchen. It’s really fun for wine geeks because if you guess the mystery wine, you get the whole flight for free. There’s a catch, though–you have to guess the grape varietal, where it’s from, and the vintage. Also, Paley’s Steak Tartare is the best in the city.

For more wine know-how, including the best pours on our list, catch Savanna at Wildwood most evenings.

Introducing The Wood Room http://wildwoodrestaurant.com/Blog/introducing-the-wood-room/ http://wildwoodrestaurant.com/Blog/introducing-the-wood-room/#comments Mon, 27 Feb 2012 21:28:42 +0000 Wildwood http://wildwoodrestaurant.com/?p=3633

Thanks to our team of dedicated craftsmen, the new Wood Room was re-thought, re-purposed, and renewed. Open for just a few short weeks, the Wood Room has already been praised as an exciting and elegant event space, complete with romantic and modern lighting (hand crocheted by Portland artist Emily Bixler), state-of-the-art sound by Paul Mar from Platinum Records, mounted LCD projector with retractable screen, and of course, access to world-class Northwest Cuisine by Wildwood Chef Dustin Clark.

Wildwood would like to thank designer Rob Newton, architect Josh Olsen, metalsmith Gunnar Adamovics, Dan Bernal of Homework Construction, the fabulous jack-of-all-trades Teddy Rupert, our IT superstar Wire Moore, and electrician Kevin Dean.

If you missed the Momokawa Supper Club dinner last night in the Wood Room, the glassware was sparkling, the lights were dimmed, and big swaths of blooming branches surrounded the table. We hope you’ll enjoy some preliminary photographs of the space, and look forward to seeing you at future events.

For reservations in The Wood Room, please contact Events Director, Shelly Jones 503.225.0130 or shelly@wildwoodrestaurant.com
