Explore Tualatin Valley: February if for wine lovers!
Make time this February to discover the variety of things to do and places to visit throughout Tualatin Valley.
Black History Month
February is Black History Month and events are planned throughout the region to celebrate African American excellence.
Show your support at these local Black-owned businesses:
- Abbey Creek Winery (31441 NW Commercial St., North Plains) was Oregon’s first Black-owned winery, and owner/winemaker Bertony Faustin shares his passion for wine in every bottle he crafts.
- Mamancy Tea & Chocolate (2831 SW Cornelius Pass Road, Ste #210, Hillsboro | 3831 SW 117th Ave. Ste E, Beaverton) brings the joy of tea to Tualatin Valley. Owner Anne Johnson, who grew up drinking tea in Kenya as a family ritual ceremony, sells curated teas and chocolates made with ingredients from all over the world.
- Deep Space Brewing (6482 Jacobson Street, Hillsboro) produces small-batch beers, and was recently sold to two of its employees—making it the first female, Black-owned brewery in the area—who continue to operate this popular, dog-friendly brew pub.
