Why William Shakespeare Would Have Joined the Oregon Wine Reserve

wineWilliam Shakespeare may have had the Oregon Wine Reserve in Lake Oswego in mind when he wrote, “good company, good wine, good welcome, can make good people,” in Henry VIII.

Prior to opening up the Oregon Wine Reserve, Andres Martinez had kept his wine stored elsewhere but knew something was missing—a place where wine lovers could not only store their wine but also gather to socialize, share their favorite wines and discover new ones (that good company and good welcome thing Shakespeare was talking about). When the current location on State Street became available, he and his partner jumped on it.

In addition to locker sizes that hold from nine to 112 cases of wine, the facility includes a tasting room for both public, member, and private tastings as well as a conference room for business people to hold meetings.

Martinez says the community has embraced their idea and that a few of the locker sizes are already sold out.

Customers run the gamut from seasoned wine collectors to newbies just starting out.

You can check it out this week, at a Cakebread Tasting on Thursday, April 10 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The $25 fee includes wines paired with food from Gourmet Productions. 600 N. State Street, 503.342.6269.
