We Have Commissioned A Custom Pinot Noir

In the spirit of farm-to-table dining representative of Urban Famer, we have commissioned a custom Pinot Noir from Angela Estate winery. This barrel select pinot noir was blended by the Urban Farmer team and hand crafted by internationally renowned winemaker Ken Wright.

 

With fruit sourced from the Angela Vineyard in Yamhill-Carlton AVA of the Willamette Valley, Oregon this elegant yet focused pinot noir shows aromas of rose hips, green tea and bright raspberry compliment the flavors of cedar, black cherry, cassis, truffle, and white pepper accentuated by a long and luxurious finish.

 

This rare expression of Oregon terroir is available exclusively at Urban Farmer Portland, Cleveland, Philadelphia & Denver. And now we share it with you, cheers!

No Kid Hungry

 

No child should go hungry in America, but 1 in 6 kids will face hunger this year. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. When we all work together, we can make sure kids get the healthy food they need. No Kid Hungry is a campaign of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength.

 

It is our responsibility as food and beverage professionals to do our part. Urban Farmer Culinary Director Matt Christianson & Team Sack Lunch PDX have made a team commitment to raise $55,000 for Chefs Cycle and No Kid Hungry through events in the local Portland community to raise funds and awareness. 

Chef Matt and Team Sack Lunch PDX will be riding 300 miles over the course of 3 days on May 16th – 18th in Santa Rosa, CA alongside some of the brightest stars and most committed advocates in the national culinary community.

Woodford Reserve Collaboration

tasting UFPDX

Woodford Reserve Collaboration

We take our Bourbon seriously round here, so much so that we have partnered with Woodford Reserve for an exclusive bottling of Urban Farmer Portland Bourbon.  Bar experts in residency Josue & Robbie traveled to Kentucky to visit one of Kentucky’s oldest distilling sites crafting whiskey since 1812 and collaborate with Woodford’s master distillers on the Urban Farmer blend.

stills UFPDX

6 select barrels were narrowed down to 4 and from these barrels Josue, Robbie and the Woodford team crafted 6 possible blends one of which was selected to represent Urban Farmer Portland with an eye towards  food. A Bourbon reticent of tropical fruit and citrus, elegant and refined yet deep, and complex lingering on the palate all the way back to Portland.

Our Oregon Pinot Noir

UF PDX Nov.

Against a background of autumn hues and misty mountains, the last of those precious little Pinot Noir berries have been picked off the vines in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  Looks like the 2015 harvest will yield richly fruited wines and you can be sure that Urban Farmer will be among the first to showcase the vintage. With a world class wine growing region a mere 45 minutes away from our front door, we couldn’t help ourselves; we had to curate a Wine List boasting over 50 Oregon Pinot Noirs. Forgive us by getting a little geeky and even categorizing these gems by the 5 AVAs (American Viticultural Areas) in our beloved Valley.

Next time you sit down for Chef’s Matt’s NY Tasting, don’t be so quick to order that Cabernet. Let one of our Certified Specialists of Wine guide you towards an Oregon Pinot Noir. We think you may be pleasantly surprised by how ideal a counterpoint the elegance and verve of an Oregon Pinot Noir is to a perfectly prepared steak.
