Last minute impromptu get-together in a cavernous room that will someday house a winery. Jesse Skiles – Fausse Piste, Prop. – is opening up his new space in Industrial SE tomorrow and asked me to bring some wine. We’ll be popping some corks, eating some cheese and talking smack. Also in attendance will be the-man-named-after-a-river, Ewald Moseler, pouring the wines he likes from Teutonic Wine Co. This will be a fun time and there will be some good wines open – many made in such small quantities that this may be your only chance to put them in your mouth.

I will be standing up and pouring liquids once more at the Cedar Hills New Seasons from 1-4pm tomorrow (Saturday 7/16). Come prop me up with your support.
I will be pouring the whole lineup at the Happy Valley New Seasons store tomorrow from 4-7pm. We always have a fun time ’cause they know how to party in the happy valley – and that’s probably part of the reason that the valley is happy in the first place, right?
We’ve just been told by a reliable source that a certain Hollywood/New York actress was seen enjoying more than one glass of Behemoth with her foie gras profiteroles at a certain chic Eastside boite. Is she in Portland for the roller derby or just to ride in cars with boys? Maybe she’s scouting wines for her next party . . . .
Come taste the wines for free – no cost to you – at the Orenco Station New Seasons store this coming Friday(6/3) from 4pm-7pm. We’ll be pouring some Brooks wines as well just to sweeten the pot. See y’all there.
The humble demon rated a nice mention by Katherine Cole in the Oregonian Spring Wine Guide. “It’s a no-brainer for pairing with burgers, steaks and charred portobellos,” writes Ms. Cole. Making you hungry? Read the whole piece here

I sent off the first boxes of Behemoth this morning to expectant wine lovers in Northern California, Southern California, Georgia and New York. I can already hear corks a’poppin’ across the country. You can get yours delivered to your doorstep as well. Go to the ‘buy wine’ page for more details, or just drop me a line and let me know what you need. Cheers!
Bruce Bauer, owner of Vino wine shop, blogger, gourmand and bon vivant, is now writing for Portland Food and Wine. His first piece about slurpable summer reds includes some very nice words about Behemoth. You can check out the article here and then stop by his shop on SE 28th and pick up some of his recommendations.
