October 2020 Pairing

Our theme this month is Italian Varietals in Oregon. There are a growing number of innovative winemakers who are challenging the ideal of the typical Oregon wine. They know that Italian grapes are unique in this land of Pinot Noir and are food-friendly, versatile wines.

We're so thrilled to be able to partner with one of our favorite restaurants, Renata for this months food and wine pairing. This wood-fired Italian restaurant located in Portland’s Central Eastside district has been wining over hearts, minds, and lots of awards in the past few years!

Once you've got your wines in hand, you can order any of these dishes for pick-up or delivery from their SE Main St location in Portland. Check out their website for all the ordering options.
