MCMINNVILLE — Headed by Tad Seestedt—whose commitment to doing things the hard way has led to a long line of complex spirits, liqueurs, and wines—Ransom Spirits has long been difficult to access. But last week, it opened a new tasting room inside of Peirano and Daughters, located at 525 NE 3rd Street, in McMinnville, in Willamette Valley. Now you can sample its rare grappa, vermouths, gins, whiskeys, wines, and more, as well as eat Italian fare, including pastrami and pork loin sandwiches. The Ransom Tasting Room is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. [EaterWire]

SOUTHEAST — Trent Pierce's Roe on SE Division is offering a special three-course chef's tasting menu every Wednesday and Thursday from now through the end of November (excluding Thanksgiving). Hidden within the B&T Oyster Bar, Roe typically features seafood-focused prix fixe diner's choice and chef's tasting menus between four and seven courses, and the special three-course chef's tasting menu costs $55 ($85 with drink pairings).

AMITY — Another reason to head to wine country this weekend, Brooks Wine, known for its biodynamic rieslings and pinot noirs, is teaming up with the Statesman Journal and chef Victor Panichkul to offer the Savor the Harvest wine and food event. Drive the hour and fifteen minutes to the Amity-based winery and find five guided tasting stations with such pairings as Russian Beef and Quince Stew paired with 2013 Gewurtztraminer for $60.
