This Hawthorne District neighborhood joint has been around since 1994 and maintains a wine list that is far better than it needs to be. In a city where wine prices are, on average, significantly lower than in places like San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York, 3 Doors manages to tuck under Portland’s lowest average. Here you can pop in for a bottle of cult Champagne producer Cedric Bouchard’s Inflorescence for under $100 or Trevallon’s 2004 Bouches du Rhone VDP for below retail cost. No matter where you live, this is the sort of place everyone wishes was within walking distance.
