Cru Effect, Part 2: North, South and East

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:

 

New Stores, Restaurants Adding Locus Wines…. September Edition

Joule in Freemont is loving the 2015 Locus Rosé for a few months now but they are not the only ones…. Madison Co-op, Leschi Mart, PCC Natural Markets, DeLaurenti, Grape Choice, Downtown Spirits, Bar Ferdinand, Sitka and Spruce (the latter two in form of private labeled for Bar Ferdinand) and PT Wine Seller (Port Townsend) are also feeling the Rosé love despite the dwindling Rosé season. (We drink Rosé year round, by the way).

As the Rosé season comes to a close, so are the supplies of our Rosé. What started as more than 500 cases are down to less than 35 cases. Sad but also cause for celebration since it means a new Locus Rosé is only 6 months away.

The trio of Costcos that are carrying the wines are still going strong. You can still find the 2015 Locus Sémillon and 2014 Locus Modo Red at Aurora Village, Kirkland and Tukwila Costcos.

Whole Foods also carry the wines but you need to know which wine is available where: In Whole Foods Bellevue, you can find the 2012 Locus Syrah from StoneTree Vineyard. The Whole Foods Westlake and Whole Foods Bellingham prefer to carry the 2014 Locus Modo Red.

Whole Foods Now Carrying Locus Wines

c3011f073a2f0ddab2f89c8a5be01ab4Well, it is official: You can find Locus Wines at Whole Foods now. The Westlake location in Seattle now carries the 2012 Locus Syrah from Stone Tree Vineyard. This is exciting news (to us, mostly) but you probably know what this actually means: Whole Foods today, world domination tomorrow!!!
