Madrona Wine Merchants will host Locus Wines’ new releases at a free tasting event Saturday, April 20th, from 2-4 PM. Jim and Mark, the co-proprietors of the neighborhood wine shop Madrona Wine Merchants, have supported Locus Wines from day 1. They hosted the first ever public tasting for Locus Wines back when we started.
Some new and some old award-winning wines will be on display along with the winemaker Rich Burton.

(34th Ave and Union)
Locus Wines winemaker Rich Burton will be on hand to serve specially-priced Locus Wines-only flights from 1 to 6PM at the Tasting Room, located in Post Alley in downtown Seattle. Locus Wines is always available by the glass or by the bottle at the Tasting Room but usually without Rich Burton serving it to you!
Show up and test his service skills, talk to him about the wine and see if he has kept up his table-waiting skills up to date from back when he used to wait tables at Duke’s on Lake Union while he was going to college. Yes. The truth is out there. Some of you probably ordered clam chowder from Rich back in 1995 or any time until 1998…
Don;t know your way around Post Alley or the hours of operation for the Tasting Room? Check out the Tasting Room website. It is a great location for happy hour, weekend wind down and post-dinner drinks too.
We are going to showcase some of the new, some of the existing wines at the TASTE Washington Grand Tasting event, taking place Saturday, March 30th and Sunday March 31st, from 2:30-6PM.
This two-day tasting event gathers over 235 Washington wineries, 65 top restaurants, renowned local and national chefs, and more – all for the enjoyment of your taste buds.
It’s near impossible to sample everything at the Grand Tasting, but the most determined wine- and food-lovers will certainly try. And don’t forget! Grand Tasting VIP ticket holders receive early access, with a special VIP-only hour from 1:30pm – 2:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
Come join Bottlehouse’s month-long program to support local winemakers during the month of March. As they called it, “curated tastings from Washington’s best every Sunday from 4 to 6 PM.” The wines will be there for tasting as well as glass pours and retail specials.
Bottlehouse, a wine bar in the Madrona neighborhood in Seattle, is especially near and dear to our hearts, since they were early supporters of Locus Wines. They have featured many Locus offerings by the glass and had our rose, Modo red as well as a special red that we had produced only for our keg program (Locus Tank #2) on tap. Not only that, when the Bottlehouse family expanded with Mr. West (downtown Seattle and soon in University Village mall), they featured Locus Wines in some of the new establishments as well.
On Saturday, Locus Wines winemaker Rich Burton is pouring the line up at the Hellam’s Vineyard wine store from 1 to 6PM. The daffodils are out so maybe in between visiting the fields, you should stop by. More information on the Hellam’s Vineyard website.
