Coopers Hall, an Urban Winery in Portland, Oregon

Issue 23 · Cool Dads · June 9, 2014

The developers who brought us Portland’s Ace Hotel are shaking things up again. Dave Schrott and Robert Sacks teamed up with Kurt Huffman and sommelier Joel Gunderson of ChefStable along with AlexEli Vineyards from the nearby Willamette Valley to open Coopers Hall, an urban winery and tap room in Portland's happening industrial Southeast neighborhood. As Huffman and Gunderson tell us, "We wanted to create an experience where people could come and drink wine, and fill up bottles to go, sans stuffiness."
