Why Attend Wines & Paradise?

We know that exploring new wines can be a daunting task, especially when browsing online. Scores alone are no way to make a purchasing decision, and many of the bottles we see on shelves and websites we don't know and have nothing to compare them with. This is where years of retail wine knowledge and passion for all types of wines from a trustable source can pay dividends when looking to up one's wine knowledge and discover new and hidden gems.
Wines & Paradise is our monthly wine class taught by our resident wine & cheese geek, Joe Paradise (WSET Diploma Level 4 & CSW).  Each month, Joe picks a new theme to dive into featuring wines throughout the world. Classes are fun, educational and always come with wine and small bites.

Crab puffs with Cava? Just in time for your holiday festivities, taste through a selection of sparkling wines from around the world with specialized food parings by Chef Joey Gibson of Parallel PDX.  By the end of the evening you'll not only know what to pour this year, but also what to pour it with!
