I have been frequenting this merchant for just over a year now and I couldn't be happier with the shop, the selection and most of all the people! Bruce, the owner and his crew work hard to find great values in wine and they are unbelievably successful at it. I attend many of his Friday evening tastings (five BIG pours for $10, plus bonus pours) and have been more than a little impressed. Bruce seems to search out some lesser known winemakers and that seems to help the bang-for-the-buck factor. VINO carries a lot of wines in the $10-30 range and lesser amounts at both ends. You won't find the $100 and up selection here that the other shops I frequent carry but that's why I BUY here more frequently than elsewhere, great value! Do yourself a favor and sign up for his newsletter, even if you never step foot in the shop you'll love his humorous musings about wine, food, travel and politics. His blog is a particularly great critique of the Portland food and wine scene. I LOVE THIS GUY AND HIS SHOP Read more »

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • Thought it would be a great idea for us to take part in trading some of our favorite wines to each other this holiday season. Something in the $30 - 40+ range retail sounds about right (best if found at cheaper/cheapest retailer), and the wines should be ready to drink now so we can all post about our impressions of the wines we were given, but ...
