Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Best Northwest Wine Selection

You might have thought of Esquin Wine Merchants here in Seattle which has one of the best selections of Northwest Wine, but we were thinking of the best selection of Northwest Wine outside of the Northwest? AZ Wines in......Phoenix. That's right! I've been in many wine shops all over the country and, at best , they usually have a few bottles of Leonetti or Ste. Michelle. At AZ we found a better selection than many wine shops in Seattle. We found L'Ecole, Seven Hills, Spring Vally Vineyard among many others. Our one complaint - as usual, the wines were scattered among the California varetals with the exception of Oregon Pinot Noir. I think the Washington Wine Commission needs to support separate wine sections for northwest or Washington wine and end displays similar to what the Australians do.
