Eqwine Wine Bar

Venture over about four blocks, and you’ll find yourself at Eqwine Wine Bar. The double entendre pays homage to its original habitat—a horse trailer wine cart. The mobile cart serves as a traveling wine bar for weddings and events, but Eqwine later expanded to include a brick-and-mortar wine bar near Downtown Redmond.

This cozy cottage-turned-wine bar sits along 4th Street, perched behind its street-front patio seating area. Eqwine Wine Bar features mostly Pacific Northwest wines, while often highlighting a single winery each month. Because of its intimate wine selection, Eqwine can offer a more curated wine tasting experience for visitors and locals alike.

Choose from a tasting flight, wine by the glass, or open a bottle for your group. Then, order snacks for your party to share. You can’t go wrong with the classic charcuterie board, served with meats, cheeses, and fig jams. But why not opt for them all? The hummus plate, flatbreads, and nachos await pairing with your wine flight.

Curl up on the patio or make yourself at home inside this adorable bungalow for some great wine tasting in Redmond. Whether you’re coming for the live music or wine tasting your way through Redmond, Eqwine is a must-add on the wine tasting itinerary.

Arome Wine Bar

There’s so much to love about this Downtown Redmond wine bar. First, it’s an adorable home and kitchen shop filled with spices, kitchenware, and specialty items (I mean, how cute is this Signature Pumpkin Dutch Oven?!). Additionally, Arome Wine Bar serves as an events space for Redmond along with its designated wine tasting bar.

With wines from across the globe, Arome strives to serve the best wines for the best possible prices. For many, that means sipping on a sparkling wine from a lesser-known winery with exceptional taste and economical price.

Arome Wine Bar offers tasting flights and wines by the glass.

Choose your seat at the bar or a table overlooking Redmond’s Sixth Street. Opt for a tasting flight, like their Winter Reds, or get a pour by the glass. Luckily, they have some tasty wine-paired snacks to enjoy while you sip and savor your wine flight. You can’t go wrong with the bread plate, served with olive oil, vinegar, and a side of their homemade spice blend. You may even enjoy it so much that you’ll take home a jar of this signature spice!

Visit Arome Wine Bar, and you’ll likely find community events on any given weekend. From cheese fondue sampling on First Fridays to hot cocoa-making classes and live music, plenty of entertainment and fun is waiting to be had alongside a glass of wine.

Beyond the Vine Wine Bar

Redmond’s newest wine bar to the wine scene, Beyond the Vine, has taken occupancy at the old Pig and Pound Public House. Located on the edge of Centennial Park between Downtown Redmond and the City of Redmond building, this wine bar should be on your radar.

Here, they strive to make wine tasting approachable by offering a selection of wines from across the globe. In fact, Beyond the Vine strives to serve sustainable, organic, and biodynamic wines from small producers. Cozy up under the covered patio on a sofa and start sipping under the comfort of a heat lamp. Or, hang out inside and chat with the staff about their favorite varietals and vintage picks.

About Eat Drink Bend

I wanted to share more than where to eat, but what to eat. And not just what, but why? From where is the food resourced? Should it be paired with a beer, or a cocktail—and what kind? But most importantly, share the faces and tell the stories behind the people who make it all happen, showing support for small business in and around Bend.
