Vinideus Wine Shop is located in Northeast Portland’s Beaumont Wilshire Neighborhood. My sense is that Vinideus was set up to serve the immediate neighborhood, ex-pats from France and Americans who love France.
In attempting to create a French styled wine bar, there is a level of authenticity that may only be attainable from being French. The decor is simple and warm, decorated by racks of wine, tables, a few couches and a long 10 foot bar whose top which looks like a long cross cut of a giant wine vine.
On the weekends they always manage to attract great musicians, this past weekend, it was a duo of acoustic upright bass and fiddle. So you find yourself in Northeast Portland and are looking for a fun escape to South of France without the jet lag, be sure to check out Vinideus and sample some of their private label wines from France and Oregon.
