The Collective North Plains
The Collective will house The Bertony Wine Collective, a local Fresh Foods Grocery store, a hardware store, other retail shops, and food carts.
Bertony Wine Collective was founded by Bertony Faustin who became Oregon’s first Black winemaker, and he got more than a few double takes. “Humanity is our brand,” Bertony said, and the business “had to be bigger than wine.”
Bertony decided he’s not going to try to fit in, and he will make it his own. What he has made is not only wine, but also an inclusive community of wine lovers, a growing movement for diversity in winemaking and a platform to show other entrepreneurs how to make a living around a higher purpose.
