Welcome to the Portland, OR Chapter
The Oregon Chapter has been an active member of the National Women for Winesense Organization, for many years. We have a strong consumer-based membership and strive to provide educational wine events with knowledgeable speakers who are expert in their industry. Our goal is to provide enjoyable, educational wine tasting programs with special events and presenters.
We welcome women and men to our membership and programs. Membership in our Chapter offers many benefits including attendance at our events at a reduced price. Another important benefit of membership is the social and networking opportunities offered at programs and events. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about the Oregon Chapter!
