2019 Old Town Wine Walk - Part One
The 2019 Old Town Wine Walk was truly a next level event that demonstrated what a great and cooperative community we have in Downtown Beaverton. Ten local wineries and wine providers were featured at 10 unique businesses, and each offered some tasty snacks as well.
Participants checked in at dulcederm and were handed the swag needed to fully immerse themselves in the Old Town Wine Walk experience. This included a bag to carry around the bottles of Pinot Noir and Rosé you would surely need to purchase, the cutest little tasting glass you’ve ever seen, and of course, a map to help you decide where your journey could lead. Signs were also handy to make sure you were heading in the right direction.
dulcederm hosted J Christopher Vineyard & Winery for the evening. If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting dulcederm, make it a point to treat yourself. I recently visited and spent 15 minutes there that felt like at least an hour of relaxation. This business knows how to treat their customers right.
From dulcederm, we headed to Syndicate Wine Bar, who offered their own wines for tasting. Syndicate will be open for business this summer, filling the wine bar void in downtown Beaverton! We’ll be sure to chat with them once they’re up and running!
Spool & Pen was our next stop, featuring Plum Hill Vineyards. This place was a plant and gift paradise! I will be completely honest, I have a black thumb, but they had such an irresistible selection I couldn’t help but chat with the shopkeeper about if I could keep the plant that caught my eye alive! Check out the Beaverton Downtown Association business spotlight on Spool & Pen here.
After Spool & Pen and Plum Hill, we ventured across Farmington to check out Art on Broadway, featuring A Blooming Hill Vineyard. There was a big local art feel to this little gallery, and patrons were clearly enjoying the PNW-inspired artwork gracing the walls. Check out their monthly free reception that celebrates new art and encourages art awareness within our community.From Art on Broadway and A Blooming Hill, we hopped, skipped and jumped right on over to Clockwork Rose Tea Emporium. I have personally followed Clockwork Rose on Facebook to keep up with their nonstop whimsical endeavors. I plan—plan being the operative word, they book up fast! —to visit this imaginative tea room for afternoon tea as soon as I can. Book your reservation at the world’s first Steampunk Tea Room here. As we wound around the tea tables to get our taste of the Helvetia Winery selection, I couldn’t help but notice the incredible décor. Chandeliers made of tea cups, the Cheshire Cat disappearing in a mural on the wall, and just general Steampunk-ery. And don’t forget the treats! If you have a sweet tooth, they have you covered—candy, baked goods, you name it, they have it.
Stay Tuned for Part Two of the Wine Walk Adventure! Coming your way soon!
