Artisan Garum Fermented Fish Sauce Enoteca and Condiment Manufacturing Plant

As I sit at the Bar at the Artisan Garum Enoteca sipping a Garum Whiskey Sour I can hear the rumble of semi trucks pulling into the parking lot….each one carrying 40,000 pounds of Sandy River Smelt that will be processed into the incredible Garum Condiment. When I attended West Linn High School I never would have dreamed that the old paper mill would turn into an Enoteca and Garum Manufacturing Plant.Biodynamic Artisan Fermented Fish Sauce Enoteca Oregon City Oregon Willamette Falls
In the parking lot and on the rocks are hundreds of 55 gallon drums filled with rotting salted macerated fish, mostly smelt, and fish entrails. Each drum is carefully covered at the top with cheese cloth to keep the blow flies out. I watch the river roar over Willamette Falls and dig into an incredible Garum Polenta appetizer. I am thinking about ordering a great bottle of California Zinfandel instead of the overpriced Pinot’s produced in Oregon.

  1. It is simply Amazing! I remember as a young boy, growing up in Willamette, thinking this is it , we will live in the shadows of those vaunted “Lake Oswegian’s” for the rest of our lives
