“These are a few of my favorite things” (wine-related, of course)….
Total Wine & More
Aka heaven, nirvana, mecca, etc. No one can compete with this end-all be-all stop for wine, beer, and spirits (which may be partly why I had to delete from this page two of my favorite local little wine shops that recently closed, both for different reasons). They even stock a good variety of local, harder to find craft brands. Their prices are the best. Everyone who works there is awesome and highly knowledgeable.
The “Costco” of wine stores in WA. A great “one stop” resource. And free parking (rare in Seattle)! I recommend Wine World for when you don’t have time to make it out to the many unique wineries of Woodinville or Eastern WA. Their selection is nothing short of amazing.
Jamieson Import Services
If you are suddenly starting to accumulate many bottles of wine, as I did, check out Jamieson Import Services. They do beautiful, custom wine racks and unique wine display pieces made out of mango wood or teak. Value and quality you won’t find anywhere else.
