A Very Locus December at Footprint Wine Tap on Capitol Hill

Footprint Wine Tap is featuring Locus Wines for the entire month of December in 2018 with not one, but two Locus Wines, all on tap: Locus Rosé and Locus Tank #3 Red Blend. They call the December feature, ‘dreamy December’ and we won’t argue with that.  Both wines are from trio of our favorite grapes: Grenache, Mourvedre and Cinsault. You all know the Rosé but the 2016 Locus Tank #3 is new: It is a keg-only red wine we made. It is so good that now we wish we didn’t keg them all.

Footprint Wine Tap is Seattle’s first wine bar that prioritizes sustainability and locality – all wines presented are from responsibly sourced grapes, by wineries that have exemplary business practices and all wines are Pacific Northwest wines. They also carry ciders, meads, cold brew coffee and sake. Located on Madison, between 12th and 13th Streets, Footprint Wine Tap is a refreshingly new concept in a very crowded and getting a bit all-too-same Capitol Hill food and beverage scene.

There is wine and drinks but there is also food: You will find lots of small plates for nibbles, a nice salad if you want more and a few desserts to go with the sweeter wines. Footprint Wine Tap opens at 2PM Monday through Friday, and then at noon on the weekends.

Locus Wines Spring Release Party – Saturday, April 22nd, 2-6PM in Madrona


Come join us on Saturday, April 22nd from 2pm – 6pm at 1515 Madrona Dr., Seattle, WA 98122 to taste through all our current releases and our two new wines: The 2016 Locus Rosé and the first ever 2016 Locus Modo White (and, knowing us, some other surprises may be in store, as well).As always, all wines will be paired with delicious bites from our sister company, ESCA Catering.

RSVP now on our Facebook event page.

We will also launch our redesigned wine club, Socius, with a more traditional tiered membership system, as well as the Locus Swag Shop, where you can get your Locus-branded couture, courtesy of our Swag Designer Tony.

Finally, we will welcome back our friends at Pearl and Stone Wine Company.  They’ll be showing off their fantastic new 2016 Unemployment Beach Rosé and the 2014 Wandering Red.

Your new summer obsessions are here.

The new 2016 Locus Rosé is basically the same blend as last year’s model but the final result is actually very different – very expressive on the nose (like fresh nectarines) and citrusy-peachy juiciness in the mouth.

For our inaugural version of our table white, we went with a clean, fresh Bordeaux-style blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc.  It is an early favorite here at the winery, so make sure you get a chance to try it before it’s gone (sadly, only 241 cases were produced).

 

Are you a Sociuspath?
We are rebranding our Socius rewards program to create a more traditional wine club with three different membership levels:

  • Socius Fanatic – for those looking to sample each of our new releases.
  • Socius Stalker – for those who may be a little obsessed (in a good way) and still want some choice on what wines they receive
  • Sociuspath (limited to 20 members) – for those who want it all – the wine, the experience, and a hand in helping shape the future of Locus Wines.

Details about the Socius Wine Club will be available at the event.  Be the first to sign up before we open it up to everyone online! See you on in the afternoon on Saturday, April 22nd in Madrona neighborhood. You can RSVP here on Facebook Locus Wines Spring Party event page.
