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.

Locus Wines at TASTE Washington This Weekend

TASTE Washington is here again. How time flies.

We are going to showcase some of the new, some of the existing wines at the TASTE Washington Grand Tasting event, taking place Saturday, March 25th and Sunday March 26th, from 2-5:30PM.

This two-day tasting event gathers over 235 Washington wineries, 65 top restaurants, renowned local and national chefs, and more – all for the enjoyment of your taste buds.

It’s near impossible to sample everything at the Grand Tasting, but the most determined wine- and food-lovers will certainly try. If you have time, also check out ESCA catering’s booth for the amazing four-cheese caramelized onion pastry squares and of course, the pork rillettes crostini with apricot preserves, toasted almonds slivers and red onion paper.

And don’t forget! Grand Tasting VIP ticket holders receive early access, with a special VIP-only hour from 1pm – 2pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

 

We Said We’d Never Do It. We are Doing It.

oBut you know, sometimes an opportunity just presents itself and it’s too good to turn down.  We never intended to have a Locus tasting room, especially this early in our development, but when we met the folks from The Tasting Room in Post Alley, we changed our mind.  The Tasting Room offers the best of Washington’s viticultural bounty in an old world-style wine bar, focusing only on winemaker-owned wineries.  We’ll be joining other great Washington wineries like Naches Heights, Nota Bene, and Wilridge as part of a tasting cooperative in historic Pike Place Market.

57869361_-c4zav3axwvr6cfgx2fsrbdx8jlvc-qujo2tfiu3k3kTo celebrate our new adventure, we are holding an invitation-only party this coming Friday night (November 18th) at the Tasting Room.  We’ve only got room for 25 guests and your name will need to be on the guest list in order to get in.  It’s *that* kind of party. Joking aside, the space is very limited and they cannot accommodate walk-ins.

In addition to our Locus wines, we’ll be tasting through offerings from five other wineries with bites from the new catering company, ESCA. If you’re interested in attending, reply to this email or shoot us a note at socius@locuswines.com to make sure we get your name on the list. There is no cost to attend.

If you can’t make it on Friday, we encourage you to check out The Tasting Room the next time you’re down at Pike’s Place Market.  They’re open from noon to 8pm everyday, except this Friday where they will close at 6 to prep for the special event.  They  have a great happy hour Mondays through Thursdays, from 5pm-7pm with discounts on glass pours, bottles and small plates. You can order wines by the glass, experience tasting flights, or just buy a bottle to take home.  We’re thrilled to be part of this great venue!
