Portland Bubbles Week, May 4-11

When it comes to sparkling wine, some folks have the “thanks but no, that stuff gives me the worst headache,” sentiment. But sparkling wine — not sugar-laden, bottom-of-the-barrel bubbly labeled as champagne — is worth trying, especially with so many wineries and vineyards in Oregon making exceptional brut.

One of our top picks for Oregon sparkling wine is Argyle Winery of Dundee Hills. They’ve teamed up with our favorite restaurants, bars and ice cream producers for Portland Bubbles Week, which starts May 4 and goes all week until May 11. Check out some of the events listed below; You won’t want to miss out on these opportunities to sip, mix, and pair some of the best sparkling wines in Oregon.
