Locus Wines Tasting at Revolution Wine: Saturday, September 17th, 6-8PM

img_0581_20151101_editedWe are pouring at Revolution Wine Bar and Shop on Capitol Hill in Seattle this Saturday, September 17th from 6 to 8PM. Revolution Wine is fairly new to the neighborhood and it is a prime location to sample some great wines. They have an amazing selection, both domestic and foreign and they also have a very comfortable space (think stools if you want to keep it business, think giant leather couches if you want to just relax and hang out). Check out their Instagram feed for some ridiculous wine shots.

Come hang out with us or simply get some wine and appetizers to relax before you move on with your Saturday evening.

Locus Wines Score Gold and Bronze at 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

IMG_9829_editedBoth of Locus Wines submissions won awards at the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition – the largest competition of American wines in the world – announced earlier in the week:

This year’s competition received the highest amount of entries on record for the competition: 7,162 from 28 states. The wines were judged by 65 judges in January (5th through the 8th) and the awards were announced expeditiously afterwards.

San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition marks the first public acknowledgement that 2014 Locus Modo Red is not half bad (It is pretty darn good actually). Here is to hoping that this competition represents more nods to the brilliant Locus Modo red, one of the best wines for the price (there may be some bias in that last statement).sfchronwine_logo
