Our Story

The Southeast Wine Collective opened in August 2012, offering an authentic wine experience within metro Portland in the vibrant Division-Clinton neighborhood - an emerging hub for the area’s food and libations culture. Kate Norris and Tom Monroe founded the Collective as a unique multi-faceted urban winery that was designed to bring together like-minded winemakers that are sustainably growing their businesses by establishing a venue for commercial custom crush wine production.

Oui! Wine Bar + Restaurant offers visitors a chance to enjoy wines from the resident artisanal winemakers as well as inspirational wines from all over the New & Old World. The numerous wine offerings are complemented by Chef Althea Grey Potter’s ever changing seasonal menu.

The 5,000 square foot urban winery space also provides a unique setting right in the heart of inner SE Portland for events and celebrations of all types and sizes. Guests are offered event planning and flexible catering options, including our onsite partner, Cuisinières Catering and Events.
