West Seattle Cellars wine shop: Welcome, new WSB sponsor

Every Thursday is “free wine tasting” night at West Seattle Cellars, and since it’s almost that time of the week, we’re welcoming them today as one of our newest WSB sponsors. Here’s their message to you:

This April marks West Seattle Cellars’ 17th year of doing business in West Seattle! Over the years we have seen lots of change, but our goal has always remained the same: To help our customers discover their own unique palates, and find wines they love at prices they can afford.

What We’d Like You to Know About Us

•We carry a huge selection of wines — with extensive offerings from the Northwest, France, Italy, and Germany, as well as from lesser-known regions around the world. If we don’t have a wine, we’re always happy to try to track it down and order it!

•We offer wines in all price ranges, from rare and limited wines for serious collectors to our well-stocked bins of wines from around the world — all under $10. We taste nearly every wine we bring in, and each one must earn a place on our shelves, whether it is $8 or $380.

•We hold a free wine tasting every Thursday evening with a different theme each week, plus a monthly Saturday tasting featuring a Washington winemaker. Our tastings are relaxed and informal, and we encourage people to try new wines, ask questions, and discover new favorites.

•We have six monthly wine clubs tailored to different interests, from every-day drinkers to highly collectable wines. Our club members are always telling us how much they love being introduced to great new wines that they would have never tried on their own.

Over the years we’ve enjoyed being part of the West Seattle community. We are highly involved with the West Seattle Helpline’s Taste of West Seattle every year, and Westside School’s annual fundraising auction, as well as other local fundraising efforts. We’ve been a member of the Morgan Junction Community Association for the past 12 years, and we’ve been supporting local artists via the West Seattle Art Walk since 2009. We also work closely with the Northwest Wine Academy at South Seattle Community College as an active member of their Technical Advisory Committee.

In celebration of our 17th anniversary, we’d like to extend an invitation to new customers by offering a 10% discount on your first visit (6026 California SW), during the month of April. Just click our ad in the right-hand column to learn more.

    Love this place and these folks. Have enjoyed watching them grow over the 17 years, and how they are such a great part of – and contributor to – our community!

    I need to visit it again. The two previous experiences were just ok. Yes, very nice wine, but I felt pricing was better at Esquin. I also just didn’t feel as though they were that friendly…not rude by anymeans, just not overly welcoming.

    Without a doubt, THE most knowledgeable and diverse wine shop I’ve ever seen.. Tom and Jan are true wine lovers, and their knowledge seems endless. My favorite thing to do is to have THEM pick me out a wine or two to go with a dinner I’m making.. I’m always willing to try new things, and they’ve exposed me to amazing wines I’d never try on my own…South Africa, the Republic of Georgia, Small Vineyards Specialties from Italy…it’s endless. And YES..the ‘Bin Of Love” $10 and under…right in front of the tasting bar.. AMAZING stuff. all the time. GO THERE.

Sorry, comment time is over.
