Wine Spirit & Archive

written by Julie Lee | photography by David Reamer

Whether for an industry professional or a novice who simply wants to learn how to swirl, sniff, sip and swallow, Wine Spirit & Archive offers everything from beginners’ basics to certifications. Wine Spirit & Archive’s owner and teaching professional, Mimi Martin, started the Portland-based business nearly a decade ago after spending time at New York University in food studies. “Wine doesn’t have to be intimidating,” she said. “I feel lucky to do what I do, putting a variety of wine in front of so many people. The more you learn about it, the deeper it gets, and it’s always changing, so I have to change course.”
The Wine & Spirit Archive (“WSA”) is a school and resource center for wine lovers and students at all levels. We believe that wine should be fun, that enjoyment increases as knowledge increases and that wine always tastes better when shared with others. Our knowledgeable wine instructors are committed to teaching classes that are informative, engaging and never intimidating. cheers@wineandspiritarchive.com 215 SE 9th Ave #204 Portland wineandspiritarchive.com
