The Sun is shining, there is a light warm breeze all you can do is relax. What better way to experience a summer evening before the chilly days creep up than to enjoy a glass of Rosé wine. Whether you prefer the sweeter side of Rosé or the dryer french style of Rosé one of these places will only enhance your Rosé wine experience.

Fall is a great time for Rosé.
In the Summer ClarkLewis opens the industrial side panels of the restaurant presenting an open air experience close to OMSI on the SouthEast side. This may have been an industrial area but things are changing and its really fun to sit at ClarkLewis at one of the tables close to the outside and watch the interesting people pass by and smell the air mixed with metals and the Willamette river. No need to worry though these guys have a great wine list and a few options for Rosé. Actually awesome Rosé options. So purchase yourself a bottle, sit back enjoying the warm breeze, and stick your nose into the wine glass for a fragrant wine experience for a much better smell.
Yes, Ava Genes is well written about and mentioned often, however, it is also a great place to relax on the East side with a glass of Rosé. Seriously, they have a wine list…and I do mean an extensive wine list with options for Rosé. Most places provide one or maybe 2 but Ava Genes they know whats up in the Italian wine world. This is definitely a place to take your in-laws, or your boss and impress him with the atmosphere and the selection of Rosé for a summer evening.
Renata is an up and coming Italian restaurant on the east side of Portland. They have a great patio to experience your lovely Rosé wine and enjoy a couple of small plates with your date, a pizza with friends, or a romantic dinner with your partner. This is definitely a place to be at during the summer months with a delicious Rosé in your hand and laughter in the air. They have at least 4 different Rosés to try, just by the glass, from different areas of the world. This gives you the opportunity to try something new and pair it with some great food to boot!
Tasty n Alder
Invasion yourself downtown Portland. The warm summer breeze wafting through the streets, you’ve been out all day and your meeting friends or your date on Saturday night. Where else than Tasty n Alder. You know whoever you are meeting loves Rosé and all day you have thought how a dry Rosé sounds so divine! This is the place. They have a few to choose from both in glass or bottle and its just a fun place to watch the people downtown bustling to the bars, clubs, or watching other people on dates passing by. Sit at one of the outdoor tables or at the intimate bar and enjoy the selection of Rosé. Don’t be afraid to try the potato skins either!
Blackbird Wine Shop
This wine shop has a great selection of wine and people who know what it’s all about. Very simple place with a few small plates but a great selection of Rosés that you can purchase and enjoy on your own balcony with special people or bring them to the shop to enjoy the bottle there. This place introduces you to the dryer side of Provence but can also demonstrate a great semi-sweet Rosé if that is what your into. Ask questions, and try something new.
