To Drink: Alongside local draught beers from Washington and Oregon brewers such as Odin’s Gift, tenders pour out spirit flights, including the Cooley Distillery Collection with Greenore 8 year, Connemara 12 year, and Tyroconnel single-malt Irish whiskey. In the mixology department, artisans whip up potions such as Liam's Libation: Jameson, banana, spiced syrup, lemon, and bitters.
When to Go: * Saturday and Sunday during brunch, when they serve up boxty, a pancake of potatoes and scallions popular in the north Midlands.
Where to Sit: Grab a sturdy wooden table near the towering stacked-stone fireplace, or belly up to the bar on a cherry-stained stool to admire the dozens of Irish whiskeys and scotches.

Wayne and Sarah Wheller first got the inspiration for Redmond Ridge Winery from a tasting room across the Canadian border, where they repeatedly inspired themselves with glasses of Chardonnay. In the ensuing years, Wayne would look to his South African heritage for insight into crafting vintages, combining them with the flavors and resources of the Northwest. The resultant creations are now poured into glasses or over the heads of true oenophiles in the winery's downtown tasting room, where reclaimed casks act as tables and rows of obsidian bottles line the shelves.

Here, visitors can immerse themselves into the cozy room's dark tones while tasting Waving Tree's many productions. In between sips, they can also munch on small plates, flip through books, or explore rotating art exhibits showcasing the talents of local artists.
