West Seattle winery Viscon Cellars to open tasting room

Thanks to tipster “Gatewood Guy” for reporting a liquor-license-application sighting on the door at the former Stitch and Sew Studio (now consolidated with parent West Seattle Fabric Company in Admiral). West Seattle winery Viscon Cellars confirms to WSB that the 5910-B California SW storefront is its future tasting room. Proprietor Ben Viscon says they’re going through “the permitting process … and some minor construction inside the location,” so no projected opening date just yet. Once open, he says, they’ll pour wines from the VC label, offering wine by the glass/bottle: “All of our wines are made in West Seattle, utilizing grapes from premier growers in Eastern Washington. Our vision is to bring the Urban Winery and Tasting Room concept to our neighbors. We have lived in West Seattle for over 18 years and are committed to bring the goodness of Washington wine grapes to our community.” They hope the tasting room will be a “neighborhood gathering place” for wine lovers and the wine-curious, including those who might want to “bring in food to enjoy with our wines while visiting with friends,” and that it will support “private events for small groups.” (WSB file photo from January)

    Awesome, I live down the street and we have a little neighborhood wine club so this would give us a great opportunity to have a place to go for a tasting.

    Glad you posted this, WSB, as it reminds me of a WSLCB App I saw yesterday, and meant to mention; the old Meander’s/Papa’s space in the 9600 block of 16th.
