our Story

In the Summer of 2018, a group of experienced business owners got together to share business ideas, thoughts, and concerns with the common goal of promoting our combined businesses. Some would call this collaboration, teamwork, inspiration, or a think tank. We started calling it “The Syndicate”. With over 100 years of combined business management and ownership experience, this team, along with the combined assistance and experience we have provided local wineries and restaurants through business consulting, decided to start the Syndicate Wine Bar. The goal was to create a place where all can come to brainstorm, share, talk, create, learn, and promote our individual businesses…. through our shared love of wine.


syndicate (noun) syn-di-cate: a group of individuals or organizations combined to promote some common interest.

From Angela and David Anderson, the Owners of Syndicate Wine Bar:

Our participation in the wine industry began in the mid-1990’s. Angela started as a hostess at Augustine’s Restaurant while David started with the Linfield College Catering team, hosting special events throughout McMinnville, Oregon. These events included the annual International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC). From these experiences, we each learned the intricacies of customer service, food, and hospitality centering around wine and fine dining.

In 2002, we built OregonWines.com, an industry service that connects wine lovers with Oregon’s wineries. This website became a living reference for information about Oregon’s wineries, wines, and viticultural regions. Over the years, we upgraded its contents and features, including a real-time touring system before mobile apps were a thing! The site served as an industry blog and events calendar, before the domain was sold to a local winery.

Since 2013, we have focused our combined passions into hyper-local networking groups and events centered around sustainability. Our lessons learned and support from the Oregon benefit corporation community, are two reason we launched Syndicate Wine Bar. The time was right to unite our communities, to grow our networks in an inclusive and educational manner, and center it all around fantastic wine.

Our commitment to sustainability runs deep, and we have actively sought to integrate the balance of people, planet, and profit throughout business. Our business is a certified Oregon Benefit Company, which calls us to a higher purpose of serving our community and operating on values of ethics, honesty, and transparency.

Combined with our experience in the wine industry and business management, we have created Syndicate Wine Bar to offer you the very best wines, paired with unbeatable customer service, for an unforgettable experience.
