About The Harvest Wine Bar: We’re Eric and Theresa Reichenbach, and we moved into the Westlake neighborhood of Lake Oswego in March 2013, right across the street from a classy wine bistro called the Olive and the Grape, which we immediately began visiting. When the O & G owners had to close their doors because of unfortunate circumstances in the Fall of 2013, we drew confidence from our professional backgrounds, purchased the bistro, and re-opened the doors to the Westlake community of neighbors in January 2014.
Two years later, in January 2016, we made the decision to rebrand the business as The Harvest Wine Bar. In addition to the diverse menu that evolves with the seasons, The Harvest Wine Bar has extensive and reasonably prices selection of wines from around the world, and with our friendly and knowledgeable staff, we feel that our tagline, “A Place To Gather”, represents everything we love about the connection we have with the community in which we live and work. Nothing satisfies us more than watching our customers enjoy themselves in our place of business. We are grateful to have the opportunity to provide our neighborhood with a place to gather and share great food and wine, but also stories, camaraderie and laughter!
About us: Before relocating the family to Oregon, Eric, a San Diego native, entered the wine industry in the tasting rooms of California’s Central Coast region. He then started his 15-year career as a wine sales representative in the same area for Southern Wine & Spirits.
During this time, Theresa worked in the restaurant industry from places such as Ojai Valley Inn to small family-run bistros in San Luis Obispo and Ventura. In the early 2000’s, we relocated to Theresa’s hometown of Orange County and Eric began working for an upscale wine brokerage called Kimberly Jones Selections that specialized in small production, high scoring California wines from Napa, Sonoma, and Paso Robles. Life was good, but soon, Oregon inspired the Reichenbachs to make the move to the Northwest, where they’ve combined their professional strengths at The Harvest Wine Bar.
