Experiencing a wine-tasting tour is a great way to learn about winemaking and tickle grapes until they weep tears of varietal joy. Expand your fermented horizons with today's Groupon: for $149, you get an urban wine-tasting adventure for two, including all wine tastings, from Pdx Pedicab (a $300 value). Outings depart from various locations in Portland.
Pdx Pedicab has the world on a bike chain with tours of downtown Portland's local wine-tasting rooms conducted by knowledgeable cyclist-guides. Guests can nestle inside the fully covered bike cab for an outing, lasting three to four hours, of three local wine-tasting rooms. During the leisurely journey, guides regale their customers with the history of wines from the region and instruction on how to fire a cork like a cannonball. Wine-tasting-room visits may encompass Enso Winery, Vie de Bohéme Winery, Wine Up, Kir, or Noble Rot. Guests nosh on cheeses, meats, and other light snacks before surveying each winery’s inner workings and storage unit full of confiscated sports cars.
Pedicab brewery adventures are regularly scheduled on Sunday–Thursday. Outings on Fridays and Saturdays are subject to availability and guests should call in advance to check the schedule. Cabs operate rain or shine, with covers protecting passengers from the elements.
Stalwart cyclists pedal through Portland's historic streets, towing colorful chariots with up to three passengers seated snugly on their padded benches. Pdx Pedicab's drivers take participants on guided experiences of local breweries, such as Bridgeport, Tugboat, and Rogue, during jaunts through Distillery Row, the East Side, and the Pearl District. They also venture out to wine cellars during voyages throughout the southeast part of the city. They make stops at each selected establishment, where passengers sip samples and purchase additional drinks to recover from joining obligatory fire-breathing competitions. Drivers also conduct cycle-powered experiences starting from the west bank of the Willamette River to explore the city's eclectic culture and some of its stranger landmarks. Each eco-friendly, emissions-free pedicab is open-air, allowing riders to feel summer or autumnal winds in their hair during excursions.
