Cork Wine Shop

Cork Wine Shop

I didn’t ask this question in 2011, but did in the 2010 survey. The first and second place winners are unchanged, but the others are all different. Here are the results:

Out of 522 votes –

1. Cork Wine Shop – 25% of the vote.  2901 NE Alberta Street, Portland OR. 97211 Map  (503) 281-2675

2. Liner & Elsen Wine Merchant - 8.8%. 2222 Northwest Quimby Street Portland, OR 97210  Map  (503) 241-9463

3. Vino Wine Shop – 6.9%.  137 Southeast 28th Avenue Portland, OR 97214  Map  (503) 235-8545

4. Vinopolis Wine Shop – 6.8%.  1025 Southwest Washington St. Portland, OR 97205 Map (503) 223-6002

9. Trader Joe’s 1.7%. 6 local stores, check website for locations.

My choice kind of depends where I happen to be doing errands, but I like Cork, Vino, Liner & Elsen and… Freddy’s.

    Bargain hunters should get themselves on the mailing lists of both Great Wine Buys and Vino. While both of these shops carry a diverse range of wines in many price categories, they also put together a monthly case of wines that comes in somewhere in the region of $100 or so, and of course you can mix and match the wines in the cases to tailor it to your individual taste. Always worth scanning those emails for the gems.

      I always find fantastic deals on wine at Blackbird Wine – always amazed at his ability to stock really reasonable bottles that are great tasting.
