Wine, Dine and Unwind in Southeast Portland’s Cultural District with Jupiter Hotel’s Urban Winery Experience

October 21, 2013 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

Discover the Southeast cultural district of Portland with the Jupiter Hotel’s PDX Urban Winery package. With a steady upswell of new inner-city wineries, Portland’s urban winemakers have moved their operations closer to where they live and socialize.

Many of these wineries serve food in a convivial atmosphere, dubbed the “enopub.” The latest Portland experience at the Jupiter Hotel celebrates this new movement where guests wine, dine and find comfort in a quality hotel stay while supporting community-based businesses.

The urban winery trend finds vintners support one another by pouring wines that are made by other wineries. Many of these tasting rooms double as wine bars with food and community activities (dinners, movies, harvest parties, etc.). Since these are urban, not estate wineries, their grapes come from all over the region (Willamette Valley, Gorge and Walla Walla). Vintners are not limited to one style and can experiment with many varietals.

The Jupiter Hotel’s PDX Urban Winery Experience also celebrates Oregon being the first state to legalize the sale of wine growlers. Hotel guests will receive a custom Jupiter Hotel growler to fill with their favorite local-area wine. The “PDX Urban Winery Experience” includes:

  • Room at the Jupiter Hotel
  • Complimentary 32 oz. Collectors’ Edition Jupiter Hotel Growler
  • 10% bottle discount at all participating urban wineries
  • $20 growler filling station gift certificate
  • Custom self-guided urban winery tour map
  • Complimentary tasting flights
  • Wi-Fi and Water Avenue Coffee in the morning included

“The comfort of our hotel is built around our truly caring for each guest. From the fresh apples at check-in, to local Water Avenue coffee served in the lobby, to our casual Doug Fir patio for relaxing,” says Al Munguia, General Manager of the Jupiter Hotel. “Our location in Southeast Portland is considered the epicenter of the area’s cultural district and this package brings the nearby chowhound activities together with a great hotel room.”

The Jupiter Hotel actively partners with community-based businesses to foster the best possible hospitality experience in the Portland area. The hotel features casual spaces where guests can hang out, drink and eat. The hotel is a favorite solution for fly and stay travelers with access to numerous transportation options, such as: Zipcar, pedicabs, on-site bike rentals and Portland’s easily accessible bus and light rail options.

“Each of our front desk staff is an expert on the local hotspots and can help guests tailor their experience,” says Munguia. “Let us help make your stay in Portland memorable.”
