Washington State Wines Co-Op and Tasting Room 3/21/2006

This is a most unusual wine shop for Seattle or elsewhere. First, not many wine shops or tasting rooms have you greeted with a dog. Stanley is an aged yet still engaging and gently playful Golden Retriever who makes quick friends of all dog lovers and some who are not. Jen is extraordinarily knowledgeable about Washington State wines from "small quantity" "high-quality" wineries. The fact that you can go in and taste before you buy is a definite benefit. Expect the wines to have a great deal of personality. As such, a few I did not particularly like, but most were really superb finds. Jen's knowledge of wines is only exceeded by her memory and engaging personality. I live in Florida but go by the Tasting Room almost every time I am in Seattle. Jen always remembers me, my partner (Karen) and trips that I was scheduled to take several months previously. Her easy manner makes the tasting experience a delight. Occasionally a business decides to do things a bit differently and the right combination of people, product and atmosphere come together. The Tasting Room is one such place. If you even like wine, the Tasting Room is an experience that I think you will find memorable. If you really enjoy wine and are in Seattle, a visit is a "must". more

Try local wines at Pike Place Market before you buy 3/11/2006

As a resident of Seattle for almost 15 years, I've come to feel that while Seattlites are generally very friendly on the surface, there's a solid wall that most people have up that keeps us from really getting to know people outside our social circles. This also carries over to merchants, who in my opinions are very stand-offish and generally could care less about extending the common courtesies and personal touches that make a customer feel welcomed and appreciated. The Tasting Room is the complete opposite of this. My proof is in the fact that I know the owners name and she knows mine. She remembers me when I come in, even though there may be months in between my visits. She remembers what kind of wine I like. She even noticed the ring on my fiance's finger after we got engaged. The real beauty of a wine tasting room in my opinion comes not for connoisseurs, but for novices like myself. What better way to discover what you like and don't like than the change to sample the options with a knowledable and helpful guide. Which again brings me back to the service. They're very attentive and carry not an ounce of snootiness. And they're great advocates for our Washington wines. One final selling point: location! It's tucked in between the Pink Door and Kell's in Post Alley, near Pike Place Market. The room has lots of old wood, exposed brick, almost European feeling. It's a great place to bring locals and out of town guests. more
