New: Community Cheers

Community Cheers

Through the chaos and tragedy around us, Pourtal wanted to come up with a way to continue connecting with fellow foodies, wine lovers, and travelers even if that meant doing things a little differently. We came up with the idea of Community Cheers - a virtual place to share recipes, wines, sake, pairings, and more with our community.

We hope that our weekly cooking classes and tastings provide you with a sense of connection and cheer even in these trying times. The Pourtal team is excited to see how Community Cheers continues to evolve and grow to reach more fellow adventurers.

What We Will Be Doing
