This week we headed to the beautiful suburb of Sherwood to meet with a new client and try some wine. One of our favorite things about Portland is that the city is small enough that you can get out to the suburbs in about 20-30 minutes. That allows us to enjoy some of the amazing places outside of the city. Hawks View is a perfect example of this. They have a gorgeous property in the hills with multiple decks, modern design, and, most importantly, delicious wine.
I highly recommend trying a wine flight, for $20 you get 6 different wines. If you are lucky they will be starting the flight off with a sparkling rosé, it’s a dry and crisp sparkling wine and pairs perfectly with the end of the summer. They also had a pinot gris, chardonnay, and 3 pinots on the wine flight while we were visiting. All of their wines are very true to the style and moderately priced if you want to bring some bottles home.
They also serve a bit of food. They have a fantastic charcuterie board that has been a staple at the winery since they opened, but they also just started doing flatbreads. Cleverly named after the color of the wine it will best pair with, all the choices counted delicious.
We decided on “The Red” a flatbread with gorgonzola, figs, prosciutto, and arugula. It was delicious. The flatbread was crisp on the edges and light and fluffy in the middle. The flavors are a classic combination that all balance really well. True to the name, it did pair very well with the pinot noir we had.
The tasting room is by appointment only, but they have a very easy online system to use. You can get to it over on their website. You can also buy bottles, book events, or join the wine club while you are there. Let us know when you go and visit this winery, we would love to know what you think!
