Urban wineries bring taste of the vineyard into the city

ENSO Urban Winery and Tasting Lounge
In an attempt to work closer to home, winemakers throughout Portland have jumped on the urban winery bandwagon. The city now lays claim to nearly a dozen urban wineries including ENSO, a small-batch artisan producer-meets-tasting-lounge-meets-coffee-shop located in the heart of the city’s Eastside.
Opened in May 2010, ENSO pours from its own Old World bottles (like Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Counoise and Mourvédre, all of which come from hand-stirred vats), alongside other Portland-made wines, locally-produced bites and, of course, beer (it is Portland, after all). Did we mention the winery is open seven days a week?
