Lost of fun stuff…but…
We cannot carry EVERYTHING, all the time…so the Wine Seller acts, quite often, as
Wine and Beer “brokers”, and we can take your requests for things we can usually obtain within 1 to 14 days. So what is not on our shelves, at any given time, can often be had with a simple request and pre -order.
“Meet or Beat Pricing“*
especially on pre-Orders!
Call or stop by with the best price you’ve seen on some of your supermarket or “big box” retailer favorites! and Remember…
Costco, Trader Joe’s, and BevMo DO NOT offer any other whole/mixed case, or 1/2 case (6 btl.) discounts! The price you see there, is the price you pay! And often our discounted price BEATS their”shelf price”! Give us a try 1st.
We generally Meet and often BEAT (or at least can come pretty dang close to) prices from Total Wines, Compass Wines and Pete’s as well! Just stop in or give us a call (360-385-7673) and give us a chance to earn your business and help KEEP your business LOCAL. Supports local independent, family owned businesses, and keeps your taxes right here in our town and county too!
The Wine Seller has a whole range of discounting levels. But we have to have a before discounts price level as well, even if that price represents a temporary mark down or “Close-Out Dealz”. We do need to pay the bills and keep the lights on. (1/2, Mixed, Whole cases and Wineaux Club discounts.)
At the Wine Seller, WE DO APPRECIATE YOUR BUSINESS AND LOYALTY!
The Wine Seller doesn’t want ALL of your wine biz…wait..yes we do. Please try to buy just about all your fermented beverages from us, and this will be a better world…and thank you.
there’s lots of “Mention This Web Deal” Special Pricing in here! Why? To get you to peruse our site and check out some Amazing Dealz at “rock Bottom prices”.
Call us or send a text or email message even if you are at the winery itself, had it at a restaurant, or see it at another retailer, (either a “Bricks & Mortar” shop, like ours, or at an “online retailer”) and want to see if we can get that product right here at home, perhaps saving you shipping costs as well. Often, winery prices are full retail, and restaurant prices are all over the board, from double retail to sometime 4 times that...“dealz” and $avings can often be obtained through our distribution network and with our volume buying power! Yes, tho we are a relatively small retail store, operating and existing in the shadow of the “Big Box” Retailers…we’ve been around a while, and know people and know how this game is played. 360-385-7673 or info@PTwineseller.com
Of course, your local Wine Seller has plenty of great wine deals on wine and beer we taste and buy, and stock our shelves with. We have an amazing selection from around the world — Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, as well as one of the best selections around of Washington and Oregon Wines…and yes..California wines too..well chosen for value and enjoyment!..
It’s an ever-changing selection at the Wine Seller as well, as we deal with a lot of small, medium and large producers of all sorts of premium fermented beverages. (Wine, Champagne/Sparkling Wines, Beer & Ale, Hard Ciders, etc. etc.) So stop in often and while you’re here, WINE NOT grab a box right next to the cooler and
mix-a-case…Wine Not! grab an empty box (left side of cooler) and select any 12 bottles.

Moutard Champagne Grande Cuvee Brut is a sparkling wine gem carrying on a family tradition of Champagne growers/winemakers dating to 1642. The families of Champagne Moutard Diligent have been living in the village of Buxeuil since the mid 17th century, and have a long tradition of both grape growing and wine production. Located in the Côte des Bar, the vineyard soils are made up of clays and limestones, lending to rich, fruity aromas and good minerality. Champagnes are cellar-aged for at least three years for non-vintage wines and up to ten and fifteen years for vintage wines. This beautiful Champagne of 100% Pinot Noir received outstanding scores of 90 from Wine Spectator and Tanzer and 92+ from Jon Gilman.
Moutard Champagne Grande Cuvee Brut is bright yellow-gold in color, complex and nuanced, with fine, intense bubbles. It has a seductive bouquet of pears, grilled almonds, mineral notes and apple pie followed by rich flavors of ripe stone fruits, honey and buttered toast. This Champagne has a remarkably long, delicate finish.
Enjoy Moutard Champagne Grande Cuvee Brut as the perfect aperitif and with any epicurean meal, including desserts.

Wine Maker’s Notes:
Our Mionetto Prosecco Organic D.o.c Treviso is made with certified organically-grown grapes (Bioagricert Srl. Mionetto). In the vineyard, the grapes are grown without synthetic chemicals and fertilizers. In the cellar, the wine is vinified separately to ensure purity. To reduce the carbon footprint of this wine even further we use recycled materials for the bottle, label and shipper. This delightful Prosecco is bright yellow in color. Its perfume of delicate elderflowers leads to an explosion of golden apples on the palate
Lots of other Organic,
“Sustainably Farmed” and/or
Biodynamic Wines all over the store!

And Another Great Deal on some fantastic “REAL” French Champagne. Henriot Brut “Souverain” Only $37.99/btl ($31.53 with Full Wineaux Club Discounts!!) (Reg. $55.99/btl)
A beautiful gold color. The bubbles are persistent, fine and regular. The nose is pleasant, made very elegant by the large amount of Chardonnay. The Brut Souverain is sharp, well balanced and harmonious on the palate.
Wine Enthusiast – “There is just a suggestion of color…. It’s very sensuous, and the wine bursts immediately into a complex play of scents. Dusty pollen, fresh-cut flowers and sweet fruits mingle invitingly, leading you into flavors of pomegranate, cranberry and spice. Big and polished, this sensual feast of a wine delivers an extra dimension of flavor, power and length.”
Wine Spectator – “Shows lovely balance, with a lacy texture and a fine frame of acidity enlivening the rich flavors of toasted brioche, baked plum, graphite, crystallized honey and ground anise. Offers a smoky, lingering finish. “

New Arrivals and Rare, Hard to obtain Wines at The Wine Seller
New Vintages of Leonetti and Quilceda Creek. Those of you who know about these wines, they are the top two “Cult Wines” of Washington State, and some of the most sought after as well.
Your local Wine Seller, besides keeping our prices on these quite fair (especially when purchased as part of a 1/2 or mixed/whole case, or you’re a current Wineaux Club member) gets a fairly decent allocation of these wines (more than many shops, but shhh..don’t tell them…it’ll only make them jealous). Of course, you will rarely if ever see these wines at Safeway, QFC, Costco, Trader Joe’s, BevMo, Total Wines etc. etc. and the like.
These wines are fairly strictly allocated to well-established bottle shops, like The Wine Seller, and “White Table Cloth” restaurants only, as a rule. It generally takes years to get on the lists of these wineries, and then you have quantity purchase requirements, shipping costs, and if you ever decline your year’s shipment, you’re off the list and at the bottom again.. So Wine Not pick up a few bottles of these legendary wines while they are in stock.
We do have some back vintages as well, at slightly higher prices, of course.
Many other rare Washington wines in as well. Five Star Cellars; Walla Walla Vintners; Kontos Cellars; Fielding Hills; Long Shadows Wines; Forgeron; Dubrul Vineyards; Buty and many more.
From Leonetti Cellars:
Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Walla Walla, $87.15.*/btl. with full Wineaux Club discount (Otherwise $104.99/btl.)
Merlot 2012 Walla Walla, ($74.69*/btl. with full Wineaux Club discount) $89.99/btl. Reg. Full price.
Sangiovese 2011 Walla Walla, ($62.24* with full Wineaux Club discount)$74.99/btl. Full price. SOLD OUT, Sorry, it went fast this year! Still a few bottles of older vintages though.

Quilceda Creek 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon $179.99/btl.($149.39*/btl. with full Wineaux Club discount)
