Fall Means Red?

How quickly we switch! Or more like you switch.

As the Fall hints its arrival, the newly released 2017 Locus Modo Red finds itself somewhat of a hot item. As we were saying bakc in August as well, there has been a big demand for it, that we are assuming driven by hoards of winelovers abandoning the whites and the rosés for the red. (Not that there were any 2018 Locus Rosé left anyways. Even the special, wine-club only 2018 Locus Garage Series Rosé is gone. We ran out in July this year.)

This month, you will find 2017 Locus Modo Red at quite a few locations around town in Seattle, wherever you live:

  • Boulevard Grocery (Ravenna)
  • Diane’s Market Kitchen (Downtown)
  • Fresh Fish (Ballard)
  • Ivar’s Pier 54 (Downtown)
  • Northwest Liquor & Wine Seattle (Capitol Hill)
  • Picolinos (Ballard)
  • Pike & Western (Pike Place Market)
  • Rama Deli & Market (Belltown)
  • QFC #891 Ballard (Ballard)
  • Vine Street Market (Belltown)
  • Vino Verite (Columbia City)

Not in Seattle? No problem.

  • A & J Market (Stevenson)
  • Bellevue Brewing Company (Bellevue)
  • Ballinger Village Thriftway (Shoreline)
  • Cafe Luna Vashon (Vashon)
  • Port Gamble General Store (Port Gamble)
  • Uncork & Unwind (Tumwater)

Welcome to fall. Begrudgingly so.

Where to Find the New Releases in Washington and Idaho

There has been quite a few inquiries as to where those of you who couldn’t make it to the July party could find the new releases out and about. Just to refresh your memory: we released 2018 Locus Modo White (60% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc), 2017 Locus Semillon and 2017 Locus Modo Red (70% Merlot blend). We thought a comprehensive list (as of July 31st, we don’t know who added the new wines on in August yet).

Ivar’s Pier 54 Special Sheet? Yeah, We Got Two Wines On It!

If you are inclined to eat at Ivar’s, one of Seattle’s most famous restaurant destinations, you are bound to see a familiar face (or more like a name) on their specials sheet…. Right on top, in fact. Locus Modo White and Locus Modo Red are two of the three special wines available at Ivar’s right now.

So before you start and share, better order the wines.
