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.

Washington Wine Month

I do wish there were more explicit references to Washington Wine Month both in the retail stores and on the net. The Washington Wine Commission needs to be a little more forward in it's efforts to promote Washington wine in state. The Tampa experiment was a big success (sales increased more than 45%), so hopefully we will see more end displays and Washington Wine sections both here at home in Washington and in other markets.

Many retailers are having big sales of Washington wines this month. Fred Meyer has lots of Washington wines on special this month and QFC is offering some real winners at great savings. For example, award winning 2002 Sagelands Four Corners Cabernet is on sale at QFC for $9 and is only $7 at Fred Meyer. The 2002 Sagelands Merlot is also on sale at QFC for $9. The highly rated 2003 Gordon Brothers Merlot is on sale at QFC for only $15. The 2005 Gordon Bros. Chardonnay is available at $10, and Columbia Crest Two Vines Merlot and Chardonnay are offered at $6.

In addition to all these great Washington wines ,there are some excellent values from Caifornia, too, at QFC, such as 2005 Edna Valley Chardonnay and Syrah at $12 and 2004 Coppola Chardonnay, Merlot and Claret at around $12.
