T H E 1 1 2 GROUP G R R O U P TRAVEL LE ADER T H E — K I M P T O N H O T E L V I N T A G E — PORTL A ND, OR EGON The Kimpton Hotel Vintage embraces the wine culture and personality of its city, Portland, Oregon. The hotel incorporates the wines of Oregon's Willamette Valley throughout the different spaces, along with the quirky style found in the Portland area. There are 117 guest rooms at the Vintage hotel, and each is named for one of 117 wineries from the Willamette Valley, Oregon's center of viticul- ture. The winery helps to create the look and feel of the room by supplying photography or art from its vineyard. They also supply two bottles of wine, which are made available to the guest staying in the namesake room. Wines from all 117 wineries are available from the Bacchus Bar wine list, which is "unmatched in the city." The Portland vibe has been incorporated here with a tattooed mural of Bacchus on the backlit glass wall and graffiti- style art in the game room. There is also a nightly wine hour where guests can sample the different wines from the region. Weekends bring live music to the wine hour, and guest speakers from the featured wineries occasionally give talks on their wines. W W W.
