The Newest and Greatest Little Wine Shop in NE Portland

Jeff Weissler, fellow wine blogger (@consiouswine) and now entrepreneur has recently opened a shop in the Kerns neighborhood of NorthEast Portland called Pairings Portland. The premise for the shop is to create a space for people, all people, to learn, discover and have fun with wine. I highly recommend you attend one of his great classes and check out the great sustainable wines he carries.

Thanks for joining us today and I hope you will take one of Jeff’s great culinary and wine pairings classes. To find out more check out his page at https://www.facebook.com/pairingspdx?fref=ts or at http://www.consciouswine.com.

Pairings Portland is located at 455 NE 24th Ave, Portland, OR 97232, cross streets are 24th and Glisan in the Kerns neighborhood.

“Our wine selection is set up by the foods they pair with. There’s a section called ‘By Cuisine’ and another ‘By Food’. The wines are also chosen based on the 4 Principles of ConsciousWine:

1. organic grapes
2. sustainably farmed
3. the ‘Star Wars’ factor
4. quality rockin’ wines”

Thank you Jeff for taking the time to talk to me about your great new shop! Cheers!

Ignite Presentations…Wine Bloggers’ Conference 2012

So, I was asked to give a little presentation, 20 slides, 5 seconds each…wait, that is what I practiced for…in the end it is 20 slides, 15 seconds each on following your dreams. It turns out that having extra time is better than running out of time.  This  is a little bit about me and what I learned along the way. Enjoy! I know I did when I did it!
