Weather is Approaching. We need your help.

Dear friends, we invite you to help your community wine bar weather through this winter!
The pandemic has forced every business, especially those in the service industry, to rethink everything. It has been exhausting and wrought with challenges, but it’s also the right thing to do. We want to protect our customers, while doing everything we can to also provide a relaxing and classy experience.
With open air seating being our most requested service space, we must look to outdoor dining through the coming rainy and winter months to ensure our continued operation. The metrics offer proof: Despite having indoor seating, of our last 1,287 customers, only 24 (less than 2%) requested an inside chair.
Beaverton, we’ve been there with you throughout the lockdown, and were among the first Old Town establishments to re-open on day one of Phase 1 (June 1). We want to continue being your favorite local taste of wine country as we head into this winter!
We want to offer you a safe, outdoor wine experience, protected also from the elements and in a way that will warm your heart and soul. To achieve this, we have a plan, and have selected the right team to help us. It’s a big financial commitment, but we feel the cost and related hurdles are going to be worth it.
We want you to be a part of this next chapter. Therefore, we are opening up our Sponsorship opportunities once more. Together, you can help us create an outdoor, partially enclosed, and weatherized space!
We are going to install, immediately adjacent to our front doors and extending into a portion of our shared parking lot, a temporary outdoor tent that can safely seat up to 30 socially distanced customers.
Designed for both day and evening use, and weather-flexible to have walls that can be rolled up or sealed, we envision this to be a space to serve both regular customers, as well as (Phase 1-compliant) private holiday parties.
With both transparent walls and ceiling that benefit from solar heating and open air cooling, with warm Edison bulbs and chandelier lighting, and draped ceiling tapestries to shade during blue sky days, the versatility of this space will offer you an experience unlike anywhere else.
We are accepting donations to help offset the cost of purchase, installation, and upkeep. In return, we will credit you every dollar towards your own private rental of the space, and put your name on a plaque in the tent, so everyone knows you helped create this dream!
