Frequently Asked Questions

Are you a wine bar? Or a retail store? Or a flower shop?

Both! All three! And more! We are primarily a bottle shop and florist, however we serve wines by the glass and have a small menu of other things. We also have some limited retail items, like candles, magazines, and plants. Come by and check us out!

 

I want to send a gift, are you able to deliver?

Currently, we do not have the personnel to offer delivery of wine or flowers. We hope to add local delivery in the future, so check back!

 

What about shipping?

We do not currently offer shipping nor do we plan to in the future. There are many reasons for this, including product quality, environmental concerns, and cost.

 

Do you sell gift cards?

Of course! We sell them the old fashioned way - physical gift cards filled out in the store. We can do any denomination. Drop by to purchase one, or give us a ring over the phone if you want us to mail someone one.

 

Can we reserve the space for a private party?

Of course! Reach out to us at hello@dogwoodpdx.com to hear more. 

 

FLOWERS

Where do you source your flowers?

We purchase from a number of farmers in the Pacific Northwest. Most are a part of the Oregon Flower Grower's Association but a few are independent farmers in the Portland Metro. In the off season we may buy a small amount of imported flowers, but it's breaks our heart to do so!

 

Do you grow your own flowers?

Starting Summer 2022, some of our flowers will be sourced from our permaculture garden in NE Portland. Hyper-local and sustainable is our goal!

 

Can I place a special order? Or get routine flowers for my business/home?

Absolutely! We would love to help you with a special request or work with your business. Email flowers@dogwoodpdx.com with inquiries.

 

WINE/FOOD

What kinds of wine do you have?

We source small production wines from the West Coast and Europe. We aim to showcase wines that are biodynamic and organic, with low-intervention winemaking practices. We highlight both classic producers and new projects - ultimately the goal is to find wines that showcase terroir and grape variety side by side.

 

Are you a natural wine shop?

While many of the wines we sell do qualify as natural wines, that is not a classification we would readily give our store. We do not shy away from the judicious use of sulfur additions, nor do we steer away from 'classically' made wines. We are always looking for good, clean wines that offer fantastic value. If they are biodynamic or organic, that is a huge bonus. If a 'natural' looking or tasting wine can tick all these boxes, we will happily carry it.

 

Do you have this certain producer I had this one time that I have been looking for since?

Probably not. Our selection is more 'curated' than 'exhaustive', however we have all different styles of wine. If you can tell us what you like or how a certain wine tasted, we can find the perfect bottle for you.

  

Do you have food?

We don't have a kitchen in our little 500sq ft shop, so we sell Lemon Pepper Marcona Almonds, Fennel Salami with Crackers, and Tangerine-Chili Marinated Olives. Great drinking snacks. Probably not enough for dinner. You are welcome to bring (reasonable) provisions from our neighbors to enjoy while drinking.
