South Portland may not be the most hyped of the city's six quadrants, but the wine shops are. With its highly knowledgable staff and more than 2,000 bottles of world wines meticulously cataloged according to country, region and appellation, E&R is a oenophile's haven. For fabulous tastings, look for the Kermit Lynch and Pinot Oregon events.
