Pastaworks specializes in Italian and Spanish wines, as well as hard to find wines from Oregon and points south. Our wine list contains over 950 selections. At the moment the web site showcases featured wines. In the future we plan to enter all of our inventory into the site. We are happy to guide you towards a fantastic wine to fit any occasion and budget. Please email to inquire about a specific wine and current inventory.
So Italy, France and Spain have been turning out phenomenal vintage after phenomenal vintage since our national economy has tanked, and the good old Greenback has the buying power of a Bulgarian Lev. What is the confirmed oenophile to do?
The obvious answer to the question is to shop at Pastaworks. In an effort to make great wine selection affordable, we scour our importer's catalogs looking for quality and value. Yes, Barolo and Barbaresco can be expensive, but there are plenty of pleasurable nebbiolos on the market that will satisfy your palate without requiring a loan.
Of course, if you desire a Barolo or Barbaresco to go with tonight’s dinner we are more than happy to make a recommendation.
And have no fear, if your budget permits you to buy in quantity, Pastaworks offers a 10% discount on purchases of 6 to 11 bottles, and 15% on purchases of 12 bottles or more.
Many of our featured wines are also available by the glass (and bottle) at Evoe, Pastaworks' eat-in spot.

Arregi Txakoli de Getaria, 2011, 2011
Txakoli is the vinous choice in bars and restaurants throughout the Basque region. Arregi’s rendition is prototypical Txakoli, produced from the indigenous Hondarribi Zuri grape. Light, crisp, clean, yes, slightly spritzy, and bound to bring a smile to your face. The 2011 vintage has just landed so you can be assured that you are consuming the latest, freshest brightest Txakoli available.
We’ll pour this by the glass at Evoe while the supply lasts. Peter scored a handful of escanciadores at the San Sebastian airport so you’ll get the complete show. Don’t have an escanciador? Just ask, or worry not, just pull the bottle back as you pour the wine into your glass for full effect. Perfect with briny creatures, antipasti and/or just a seat in the sun. Aupa!

Correggia Roero Arneis, 2011
The late Matteo Correggia helped put the "left bank" of the Tanaro river in Piedmont on the vinous map.Long overshadowed by the "Langhe" region across the river, home to long lived Barolos and Barbarescos as well as Dolcettos and Barberas, the Roero, as the left bank is called, had an often deserved reputation for slurpable but forgettable wines.
Correggia and a handful of other producers believed that the sandy soils of the Roero were capable of more. This Roero Arneis shows that the region deserves its place on the map. Bright, fresh fruit, with hints of almonds. Well suited to fish dishes, appetizers, au gratin vegetables and fresh cheeses.

Occhipinti Il Frappato, 2010
Frappato is the grape and wine. Floral and wild herb overtones, bright berry like aromas and flavors.
Disregard the stereotype of Sicilian reds. Occhipinti's Il Frappato is not overblown, high in alcohol or submersed with oak chips. This is an elegant, balanced, harmonious red that pairs well with roasted meats/game, stews, spicy pasta dishes and even tuna.

Occhipinti SP68 Bianco, 2011
Occhipinti’s SP68 Bianco Sicilia 2011 is made from Albanello and Moscato di Alessandria (regionally known as Zibibbo) grapes grown at 280m altitude in medium sand soil with a limestone component.
Citrus aromas and flavors with hints of spices, honey, pistachio and herbs. Interesting enough for the wine geek friend, and friendly enough for the visiting aunt/uncle. Pair with roasted veggies, seafood, lighter tomato based dishes, rapine with pasta, and medium sharp sheep milk cheeses.A beguilingly good wine.

Paolo Saracco Moscato d'Asti, 2011
Paolo Saracco is the king of Moscato. Year after year his effervescent, frothy, sweet but light, clean and refreshing wine makes us smile, and have another glass. Need further convincing? This From Matt Kramer in The Oregonian (June 08, 2008): “Moscato d'Asti boasts numerous fine producers. But the finest, for me, the district's greatest specialist is Paolo Saracco..."
If you've never tasted Moscato d'Asti try it with Panettone or chocolate truffles. You're in for a treat -- even a revelation. Low in alcohol, Moscato d’Asti also make for a perfect late afternoon aperitivo

Produttori del Barbaresco Nebbiolo delle Langhe, 2009
Produttori del Barbaresco is all things nebbiolo. Located in the village of Barbaresco, the Produttori, a co-operative of more than 60 families, own and cultivate some the region's most expressive and important vineyards.
The 2009 Nebbiolo is a wonderful introduction to the variety. In particular, the vintage was warmer than normal, so the aromas and flavors of the wine are forward and approachable. Tar and roses, with excellent structure and balance. Pair with pasta dishes, braised meats and sharp cheeses.

Renato Ratti Torriglione, 2010
Ratti's "Torreglione" Barbera d'Alba is quintessential Barbera: bright, brash, briery and delightful! The fruit is nicely balanced and the finishing acidity is well integrated. This is a perfect fall/winter red, nicely suited to heartier pasta dishes, stews, sausages.

Selvapiana Bucerchiale, 2009
Bucerchiale is Selvapiana's single vineyard riserva Chianti Rufina. Quite simple, it's one of Tuscany's and Italy's best wines, year after year (when it is produced). Opulent, yet elegant balanced, Bucerchiale expresses the full potential of sangiovese.
The newly arrived 2009 has received considerable press attention. The initial supply is quite limited but we are hoping for a new supply before the end of the year. This would be a fantastic bottle for your year end celebration meal.

Selvapiana Chianti Rufina, 2009
Selvapiana launched Pastaworks pursuit of all (wine) things Italian. A local restaurant welcomed us to the neighborhood with a bottle of 1977 Selvapiana Riserva. We discarded what few wines we had from California (we have added some since) and began our love affair with Italian wines.
Much has changed at Selvapiana since that fateful first taste---the riserva bottling is now a single vineyard wine, Bucerchiale---but the quality and consistency of the estate's wines continue. This is till our house Chianti of choice!

Zerbina Ceregio, 2009
Simply put, Fattoria Zerbina's Cristina Geminiani produces some of Italy's best wines. Ceregio is Zerbina's go to everyday Sangiovese. It has bright, focused forward fruit, redolent of cherries (thus Ceregio). It's balanced and pleasurable, and matches well with an array of typical Italian dishes---pastas, pizza, antipasti, grilled sausages and fowl---as well as domestic stand byes, aka hamburgers.
