Just in time for fresh spring flavors, SE Wine Collective’s popular Cuisiniéres Supper Club returns. The Collective’s Chef, Althea Grey Potter and Co-Founder/Owner Kate Norris are teaming up once again bringing local ingredients, French flavors, and expertly paired wines from several of Portland’s urban wineries to the tables of SE Wine Collective Tuesday, April 5th. After hosting the Cuisiniéres (meaning “lady cooks” in French) supper club for a year now, the duo launched the Cuisinieres catering company March 22nd. This event is taking place right after the SE Wine Collective’s Spring Wine Club release on March 25, making it a great opportunity for guests to taste and pair some of the newly released Spring Club wines. Guests will be able pick up any extra bottles of the wines they love that evening, and if they haven’t already, join the Club!

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 urban winery and wine bar brings together like-minded wineries who are sustainably growing their businesses and offers a venue for commercial custom crush wine production, tastings and events in an area of SE Portland that already hosts a thriving restaurant and nightlife scene. Currently the collective is made up of ten wineries: Division Winemaking Company, Fullerton Wines, Helioterra Wines, Jackalope Wine Cellars, James Rahn Wine Co, Jasper Sisco, Ore Winery, Vincent Wine Company, Willful Wines and 5Q, while continuing to work as an incubator for future wine brands and budding industry ideas. Currently 20 varietals are produced at the Collective ranging from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc to lesser-known varietals such as Gamay Noir, Mourvedre, Chenin Blanc, Muscat, and Arneis. The wine bar features pours and flights from all 10 Collective members and their inspirational wines along with draft beer and a diverse food menu by in-house chef Althea Grey Potter.
