Cru Selections, our distributor in Washington and Northern Idaho, hasn’t just conquered the islands and the Peninsula. They also spearhead Locus Wines north (LaConner, Mount Vernon, Everett, Bellingham, Marysville, Mountlake Terrace) and (Tukwila, Des Moines, Tacoma, Olympia) south of metropolitan Seattle, and of course, east of it (Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Renton, Sammamish, Snohomish) – as far as Spokane, actually. Some of these markets are new to us so it makes the whole trek even more exciting:
Hellams Vineyard, La Conner’s premium location for wine, spirits and beer since 2004, has included Locus Wines in its selection. They have quite a bit of the 2013 Locus Stonetree Vineyard Syrah up there now. In addition to a great wine selection, they offer a great website with lots of cool pictures (of food and wine mostly. The kind we like). Hellams Vineyard is on North 1st St. in La Conner (109 North 1st St., Suite 101 in La Conner, WA 98257 to be more specific) and in addition to selling wine, they also have a wine club and frequent winemaker dinners.
