, an authentic and house-made charcuterie and meats company based in Portland, Oregon, began as Oregon’s first USDA-certified salumeria and now offers food-lovers five Portland restaurant locations and online product availability nationwide. Everything that we make is handcrafted naturally with the ultimate goal of quality. In order to achieve a finished product that tastes as good as it possibly can, we pay fastidious attention to the details. Ingredients are our inspiration and we seek out the best and freshest.
Founded in 2011, Jacobsen Salt Co.
was the first company to harvest salt in the Pacific Northwest since Lewis & Clark built their salt works in 1805. Since then it has transformed from a local, small business to a nationally recognized brand as America’s leading salt maker. Harvested from the cold, pristine waters of Netarts Bay on the Oregon Coast, our flake and kosher sea salts have garnered worldwide favor for their beautiful presentation and pure taste by professional chefs and home cooks alike.
Nearly 20 years ago, Stumptown Coffee Roasters
began roasting exemplary coffee. Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Stumptown is committed to sourcing, roasting and serving some of the best coffee in the world. Stumptown, a staple of Ace Hotels, counts a total of 11 cafes across the country (Portland, New York, Seattle, L.A., New Orleans, Chicago). Their full line of high quality whole bean and Cold Brew coffees is available in cafes, restaurants, and grocery stores nationwide. Achieving B Corp status in 2018, Stumptown strives to be a leader in sustainability and is focused on making sincere and lasting contributions to the environment as well as to their employees and community.
Founded in 2006, the Oregon Cheese Guild
is dedicated to the art and craft of making cheese. The Guild is a collaborative effort to increase awareness of Oregon’s artisanal cheeses, create educational opportunities, and provide a platform for cooperation and shared resources among Oregon cheesemakers. The Oregon Cheese Guild hosts a number of yearly cheese events and provides The Oregon Cheese Trail, a resource for discovering cheesemakers and vendors. Be sure to look for cheeses from Face Rock Creamery, La Mariposa, Ochoa’s Queseria, River’s Edge Chèvre, Rogue Creamery and Willamette Valley Cheese Co. at the event.
Oregon’s modern vineyards were planted in confident defiance of conventional wisdom. We like to do things our way and this grand happening will be no different. In addition to world-class wine we’ll have bites from some of Oregon’s favorite food artisans and some fun surprises along the way.
To connect you with the wines that best fit your palate we’ve outlined six wine trails throughout the event. Preview them all below and join us on May 6 to explore your Oregon wine trail.

Oregon’s bountiful resources and beautiful scenery are worth protecting. Sustainable farming and winemaking aren’t about being trendy, they’ve always just been who we are. From the strictest labeling regulations in the country, to the most certified sustainable vineyard land of any major U.S. winegrowing state, Oregon understands that great wine starts with healthy land.
Pioneers aren’t just history, they’re also our contemporaries. Pioneers are defined by persistence and innovation, bedrock traits of Oregon winemaking. This trail weaves together the personalities that blazed Oregon’s original trail as well as the winemakers they inspired, who today are pioneering new approaches and methods to crafting exceptional wine.
Oregon’s Willamette Valley has become synonymous with Pinot noir. Pinot was among the first vines planted in the valley and today it occupies more than 70% of Willamette vineyard acres. But Pinot noir is revered for its transparent expression of terroir, so more vineyards means more variations of Oregonian Pinot to share. In this case, more is better.
Oregon makes Pinot noir really well. But we also make rich skin contact Pinot gris and Austrian varieties that are hard to pronounce but easy to drink. From the cobble stones of the Walla Walla Valley in Eastern Oregon down to southern vineyards a stone’s throw from California, Oregon farmers grow 72 grape varieties. Find something unexpected.
For a little chill, explore Oregon white wines. French royals like Pinot gris and Chardonnay abound, but old world Spanish varietals such as Albarino and Italian Moscato can also be found on the trail. Oregon’s varied regional climates and nested microclimates allow winemakers the opportunity to grow what grows best.
Elegant and powerful are not incongruent, and the reds on this trail are for those looking for both. While Pinot noir is grown throughout Oregon, the state’s varied regional climates support bold reds such as Cabernet, Tannat, Tempranillo and many more. Explore Oregon’s bold side.
