Consider this your friendly reminder: This Saturday (May 14), more than local 40 wineries till toast Oregon's artisanal wine scene at the seventh-annual Portland Indie Wine & Food Festival. The juried event, which crashes NE's Bison Building beginning at 2pm, features pours from exclusively small-batch wineries, and in its lucky seventh year, Indie Wine is throwing a "greatest hits" celebration of sorts, inviting back 30 past participants in addition to 14 nearly selected first-timers. In addition to unlimited sips, tastes from St. Jack, the Country Cat, Cheese Bar, Simpatica Catering (among others) will help soak up all that booze.
And consider this Eater's stab at public service: Tickets are still available at the official website, but we at Eater have one pair of tickets to give away to a lucky reader. Just send us an email with "Indie Wine Me" in the subject head, and we'll select a winner at random on Friday morning.
