This interview is an oral history conducted by Linfield College archivist Rachael Cristine Woody and student Stephanie Hofmann with Renee Neely and Laurie Lewis, of Hip Chicks Do Wine. The interview took place at the Hip Chicks Do Wine winery on June 14, 2016.

Renee Neely and Laurie Lewis are the owners of the Portland urban winery Hip Chicks Do Wine. In this interview, they talk about being the first urban winery in Portland, being a part of the LBGTQA community, making wine that is “serious wine, serious fun,” and the future of that section of the wine industry.


Some oral history interviews were conducted on site and may contain background noise from nature, winery, or tasting room operations.
