Snow Day

We are staying home this Saturday and watching the flakes from our cozy living rooms.  We’ll dig ourselves out tomorrow and be back open for business.

Enjoy the snow,

Mark & Jim

Champagne anyone?

We are open from Noon to 6pm today, in case anyone has a sudden urge to celebrate.

Tariff Update

Not the biggest headline of the day, but. . .

In a farewell gesture the Trump Administration has imposed a new 25% Tariff on French and German wines over 14% alcohol   This expands the original tariff that was on wines 14% and under.  The new tariff went live on January 12th (this includes wine already on the water). While the Biden Administration may reverse these tariffs it probably won’t happen very quickly.  This is going to make wine prices very volatile in the near future.  At Madrona Wine Merchants, we remain focused on quality and value, but we expect a few bumps in the coming months.

These tariffs have a huge impact on smaller wineries and importers.

6 days until the Inauguration.

Mystery Returns!

Mystery Six Packs

$48

One of our distributors was tidying up the warehouse and came up with a lot of odds and ends.  These are left behind lots of small quantities that aren’t worth them trying to sell individually. They made us an offer and we took them up on in. Most of these wines sold for between $10 and $20 with a few gems hidden in there that sold for more.  We have packed them together into 6 packs that we are selling for $48.  Most of the boxes contain 4 reds and 2 whites.  Want a little mystery in your evening. Here’s your chance.

We’re Back! Well kind of . . .

We are opening this Saturday (April 11th) from Noon to 4 pm, filling pick up orders only.  Email us and we will try to fill all requests as best as possible.  Or Call us during our shop hours and we can find what you are looking for that way.

You can prepay for orders by credit card and pick them up at the curb, or if you prefer you can come in and pay at the time of pick up. 

To maximize social distancing with minimal contact between ourselves and our customers, we are currently suspending all browsing and self-selection at the shop.  This is not the way we like to do business, but we are following what the times dictate.

We’ll be expanding the days for pickups next week.  More details soon.

Thanks and enjoy our good weather.
