ABOUT SE WINE COLLECTIVE
Kate Norris and Thomas Monroe, of Division Winemaking Company, founded the Southeast Wine Collective in 2012 in response to their personal interest in creating a unique multi-faceted urban winery, coupled with increasing public interest in the urban wine movement. The pioneering urban winery brings together like-minded wineries who are sustainably growing their businesses by offering a venue for commercial custom crush wine production, tastings and events in the bustling area of SE Portland, and is also home to Oui! Wine Bar + Restaurant. The collective is made up of 12 wineries: Division Winemaking Company, Croom, Esper Cellars, 51 Weeks, Gersing Cellars, Laelaps Wines, Loop de Loop, Ore Winery, Pampleau, Stedt, Statera Cellars, Welsh Family Wines, and while continuing to work as an incubator for future wine brands and budding industry ideas. Currently 20 varieties of grapes are vinified at the Collective ranging from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc to less common Oregon and US produced varieties such as Gamay Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chenin Blanc, and Nebbiolo. The wine bar and restaurant, Oui!, features pours, flights, glasses and bottles from all 12 Collective members plus an extensive list of global wines that inspire the makers, along with draft beer, wines on tap, 2 Wine Clubs, and a creative and seasonal food menu by chef Althea Grey Potter.
