Locus Wines by the glass at Bottlehouse, The Shambles

 

Bottlehouse, the wine bar and shop in Madrona neighborhood has added 2016 Locus Sémillon to its by the glass rotation. You can now get a 2 oz or 5 oz taste ($10) of the wine, or go directly to bottle. Bottlehouse has been a great supporter of Locus Wines: they carried 2014 Locus Rosé at the wine shop, had a special red blend (2015 Locus Tank #2) on tap, as well as 2013 Locus Red few years ago. Check the list out before Locus goes off the rotation at the Bottlehouse’s website or simply drop in at 1416 34th AVE Seattle, WA. 98122, (less than a block north of Union on 34th).

Another location carrying Locus on tap is the new butcher shop/bar, The Shambles. The Maple Leaf space has been making quiet the noise in the press since it opened (see Seattle Times or the Eater Seattle articles). Among the awesomely long list of beers and wines on tap, you will find 2015 Locus Rosé. The Shambles is located at 7777 15th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115 and it is open every day at noon until close.

 

Locus Modo on Tap at the BOTTLEHOUSE

Bottlehouse, wine bar and shop, in Madrona has tapped the 2014 Locus Modo Red. It is now available for glass pour at your convenience, pretty much every day from 3PM until close.

Locus is no stranger to Bottlehouse. Over the last year or so, various Locus wines were on the glass pour list (Semillon, Rosé, 2013 Red) as well as the bottle list (2012 StoneTree Syrah). Now it is full circle with the addition of Modo Red in the Bottlehouse offerings.

Dwell, Drink and Be Well with Locus Wines at BOTTLEHOUSE

Bottlehouse, wine bar and shop, in Madrona has added 2013 Locus Red (Rhone blend with 68% Syrah and 32% Grenache) on its red wine by the glass rotation. You can now get a 2 oz or 5 oz taste of the wine, or go directly to bottle. They also added the 2014 Locus Rosé to their Rosé offering at the wine shop.

Their wine list rotates and evolves frequently, so head on over there before they run out of the Locus wines. And if they have run out, demand that they bring it back!

Joking aside, for those who may not be familiar with Bottlehouse, here is a very brief summary: Located on top of the Wilridge Winery (the building was once easily recognizable by the giant wine barrel in the front yard) in a 1900s house on 34th Ave, Bottlehouse has been the prime wine drinking/tasting location in Madrona since 2010. They also offer great indoor/outdoor space for private events and parties, up to about 75-100 people.

It is really hard to find a place where you can have a glass of something (they have great cocktails and specialty beer selection as well) and nibble on delicacies (they have some outstanding cheeses, artisan meats as well as specialty sandwiches on freshest of breads) early afternoon or late evening, especially in residential neighborhoods of Seattle. Bottlehouse is definitely a neighborhood place as well as destination. They open 3PM every day and open until late, with a happy hour from 3-6PM. (During happy hour, they have some special wines and beers as well). You can probably tell we go there often.

Check out Bottlehouse’s website or simply drop in at 1416 34th AVE Seattle, WA. 98122, (less than a block north of Union on 34th).

The Chef In The Hat is Thierry Rautureau’s Madison valley staple Luc and the Iron Chef Maria Hines’ Tilth in Wallingford have added Locus wines to their wine programs in April. Specifically, you can find the 2014 Locus Rosé at Luc and the 2014 Dineen Vineyard Semillon at Tilth.

Neither Tilth nor Luc need introductions and we are very grateful and proud that we made the cut.
