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.
