While offering a version of that Portland favorite— seasonal, European-influenced, Pacific Northwest cooking—much of Dame’s buzz comes from the fact all their wines are natural, made with few additives and as little intervention as possible. There’s plenty on Dame’s list to get wine geeks excited, with selections of Radikon and Texier to pick over, but the rest of us should just get recommendations from their helpful, knowledgeable staff.
