Madrona Wine Merchants opened its door ten years ago mid-October as the leaves were turning and the rain settling in just as it is now. Over the last decade we have rotated through over 6000 wines while trying to curate a diverse selection of interesting grape juice that is fun to drink and enlivens the palate.
Thanks to all of you who have supported us in this endeavor over the past 10 years and join us as we raise a glass to the future.
2019 Nortico, Alvarinho $13
A young, fresh white wine with the characteristic bright acidity and aromas of peach and grapefruit. Nortico is light and delicate, lovely as a “porch-sipping wine” to drink on its own. Also a terrific seafood wine, particularly with salty, fattier dishes like fish tacos or broiled oysters. Was $15 now $13
2014 Señorio de la Eralta, Rioja Reserva $15
Snappy cranberry and tart cherry flavors mingle with leafy and licorice notes in this lively red. Cocoa and toasty accents linger on the finish. It’s bright and fresh. Drink through 2024 if you can wait that long. Was $28 now $15
Mark & I are fully vaccinated (and hope you are too) and are happy that we can now let small groups of people back in the shop to check out our wines.
While the Covid news is positive, our shop is a very small space and we will requiring masks while shopping. We also limiting the capacity to 4 customers at a time until we all adjust to this new reality of personally interacting again.
The shop has become a little ratty since we cooped ourselves up here 14 months ago, but we’ll be working to make it a bit more tidy. Our silk purse is still in its sow’s ear form. But we’re hoping your eyes will wander to the bottles, not the clutter.
For those who still prefer the convenience or separation of the past year, we are still happy to take all orders specific or general and have them ready for pick up. Just Call, Email or Shout Out at the door if you don’t feel like coming in.
