our story

Grippy Tannins’ mission is to make wine more approachable by creating a space to learn about and taste small production wines from all over the world before taking them home to enjoy.

Through a beautifully curated selection of wine, we hope to introduce you to exciting new wines and passionate emerging winemakers that keep you curious and wanting to taste more.

TASTE

Our wine shop and tasting lounge in Portland’s East End neighborhood is a culmination of our love for wine. All of the wines we have in stock at the store are available for in-store consumption in our tasting lounge or for purchase in our wine shop. Whether you want to buy a bottle or two for a gathering at home, or taste a few wines in the shop – we’re excited to welcome you.

When you visit us in the shop, our team of wine lovers are more than happy to help choose the perfect bottle. For our in-store tastings, we have a list of wines available by the glass and 1/2 glass which rotates daily. Or reserve a tasting in advance (for 4 people or more) and the Grippy Tannins team will curate a selection based on your taste preferences. We also offer cheese plates, charcuterie boards, and small bites to enjoy while you’re visiting the shop + tasting lounge.
