Where to Drink in Portland Right Now
It’s hard to pin down when exactly the Portland wine scene finally copped to the fact that the craft beer boom may soon upend their stodgy ways, but few wine connoisseurs will disagree that the past 5 years have been a genesis or sorts for newbie-friendly wine bars. Like Les Caves or Enso Winery before it, Bar Diane ditches the pinot-swilling boomer-bait aesthetics in favor of a place where normal people can feel comfortable walking in off the street to drink killer wine at affordable prices. Boomers are obviously welcome, but it’s also a fine place for a singleton to try a half-glass of vintage orange wine they may not want to purchase by the bottle for close to $100.
How to order: Head inside for seating on the patio.
