Our Wine Offerings: Small Batch Oregon Pinot Noir & Much More
Throughout the years, Mt. Tabor Fine Wines has had a number of amazing Pinot Noir offerings, most as futures. Having been in business for nearly 20 years, we have developed firm, long standing relationships with some of the legends of Oregon wine making. This includes John Thomas, Ken Wright, Jim Arterberry-Maresh, and Matt Kinne of McKinlay, to name just a few.
Most of these “vignerons” give Mt. Tabor Fine Wines a hefty slice of their total production, which in most cases, is fairly tiny to begin with. Many of these Oregon winemakers only sell to a few selected restaurants and a wine shop or two — though often, this is just us.
We have always wanted to be an old fashioned style wine merchant, so we don’t accept Paypal and no orders area placed to a system without a human face. Getting to know our customers, whether out of state or local to Portland, has been one of the great pleasures of what we do.
Many will send a note and ask us to put together an order for them, and then to ship or hold it here at the store for pick up. The more we know about your taste, the easier it is for us to make the “perfect” selections.
Our number one goal is to provide you with the finest experience possible. To accomplish this, we offer our wines by email list only. We post our offerings here on the site, but they typically sell out so quickly, that by the time you read about it here, the wine will be gone. If you want to be included in these special offerings, then please sign up for our list.
Over the years, we have also become fond of quite a few European wines, as that has been my all-consuming passion for over 39 years. Here in Portland, Oregon, we are quite fortunate to have a large number of Italian and French wines directly imported — in many cases, these come from small, organic/biodynamic domaines. We have been able to secure nice quantities of these jewels, and plan to expand our offerings into these exciting areas, including Burgundy, The Rhone, The Piemonte and Toscana, to name a few. These, as well, will be on offer to our email list only.
While we are a local Portland wine shop, we carry a wide selection of top quality wines from every wine region around the globe. Whether your passion is Bordeaux, Burgundy, the Loire, Italy, Austria, Germany, The Northwest, or California — we can help.

Why Can’t I Order Your Pinot Noir Offerings From Your Site?
We pride ourselves on the personal relationships that we’ve developed with our customers. To us, our customers are not just faceless, nameless people who order anonymously through a website. Our customers are real people with real opinions about and passion for wine.
The best way for us to develop a great relationship with you as a customer is to talk with you or to communicate with you through email: about the wine that you are buying, the people who made it, what you love about it, and what we love about it. After all — with wine, it’s all about sharing!
