Great Wine Buys
So, they say a lot is in a name…and in this case, the name says it all. Indeed, Great Wine Buys, located at 1515 NE Broadway in PDX, provides exactly that. Yet this is no big-box approach, driving costs down through high volume orders. Rather, Great Wine Buys carefully curates each wine it carries and puts together not only incredible values (just check their featured Case of the Month for April), but also provides amazing, custom feedback on how to select the perfect bottle for your occasion. And…they will sell you individual bottles as one-offs, at the same price offered in the monthly case selection. Amazing.
Clearly being the very first independent wine shop in Portland has its advantages. Established in 1984, before wine was that much of a thing around here, this semi-quaint and ultra-cool wine shop bleeds experience. Yet don’t let your novice status (if you are so) keep you from the door. Great Wine Buys caters to all levels of knowledge, which can bring a thrill to any type of buyer. Fancy yourself a sommelier? Come test and share your knowledge. Never had a glass? Come find out what suits you best.
Great Wine Buys stocks over 1500 wines at any given time, bringing them in from the world’s hottest wine regions. This shop’s clout allows them to bring in wines that, well, can be nearly impossible to get your hands on.
