Portland Monthly Wants Your Favorite Wines!

We’re looking for the 50 best wines in Oregon, but before our expert panel’s blind tasting can commence, we need your help!

By Allison Jones May 6, 2014

Want to help Portland Monthly’s wine team choose the best of the best Oregon wines of 2014? Forward this call to your favorite wineries, winemakers, wine shops, and distributors to make this year’s list better than ever.


This October, newsstands statewide will feature our annual “Oregon’s Best Wines” feature. We are now accepting submissions of your best wines, and June 6 is our deadline to receive the state’s top offerings for tasting. As always, we will be looking for the best of Oregon pinot noir, the grape that put the state on oenophiles’ world map. But this year, we’re hoping to also highlight the many other kinds of wine Oregonians are making.

To participate, please follow the guidelines below:

1. No more than 5 wines total from any one winery (feel free to send two bottles of each in case of cork taint).
2. Please limit submissions to the 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 vintages.
2. No more than 3 pinot noirs.
3. Whites, rosés, bubbly, and non-pinot reds heartily welcomed.
4. Each bottle submitted should be available for sale in October.

Please send submissions to:

Rose City Self Storage and Wine Vaults
111 SE Belmont St.
Portland, OR 97214

Hand deliveries to Rose City can be made Mon-Sat, 8 am-6 pm.

If possible, please also send a high-quality, white-background image of the submitted bottles to [email protected] for inclusion in the magazine.

To help us ensure the widest possible sample of wines for our 2014 issue, please send a confirmation e-mail to wine editor/coordinator Allison Jones at [email protected] to let us know you’ve received this call for submissions and whether you’ll be submitting wines. We don’t want you to be left out! (She’ll also be happy to answer any further questions.)

Many thanks and good luck!
