A toast to fabulous wine at a fabulous price!
Last week I visited Seattle Wine Outlet just north of Downtown Seattle on the way to Ballard. I have been hearing so many wonderful things about the shop for high-end wines at wholesale prices (staring at low at $8!). Customers visit the outlet for personal wine cellars, special events and of course weddings!
Andrea Mirante, wine guru and instructor at the shop, was behind the counter and spent time discussing the offerings of the store including tasting events and wine classes as I sipped three unique Washington wines (one of which was so good I had to buy a bottle on the spot!).
Seattle Wine Outlet was founded by Richard Kinssies, a sought after wine columnist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and world known wine educator. Richard opened his two shops (first shop opened in SoDo District) with the philosophy that exceptional wines should be available at affordable prices. The wine selections at both shops change out frequently as Richard is always searching for unique wines to keep the palate fresh.
I highly recommend visiting Seattle Wine Outlet if you are in search of great wine for your event or simply want to learn more about wine. Their attention to detail and personalized service to carefully pair wines with your menu will make for a memorable event!
