We cannot, however, carry EVERYTHING, all the time…so we act, quite often, as

wine and beer “brokers”, and 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”!

We generally Meet and often BEAT 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!

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 need to pay the bills too, and the tourists don’t need to get all of our discounts.(1/2, Mixed, Whole cases and Wineaux Club discounts.)


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.

Call or send a 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, and restaurant prices are all over the board, from double retail to sometime 4 times that...”dealz” can often be obtained through our distribution network and with our volume buying power!  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 as well, as we deal with a lot of small producers of all sorts of premium fermented beverages. (Wine, Champagne, Beer & Ale, Hard Cider, 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 a box and select any 12 bottles. SAVE BIG $$$

Our generous 15%* every day mixed or whole case discounts* are truly hard to beat! (10% off 6 BTL. 1/2 CASES)  WINEAUX GREGARIOUS Club members save even more…AS MUCH AS 17% off REGULAR AND SALE PRICES!


Often, our discounts combined with Winery and/or Distributor mark downs and occasional Close Out Dealz savings can be 30%-40%-50%

sometimes even over 75% OFF

The Wine Seller does get offered many small and medium lot Close Out Dealz!

Check in often, as these tend to fly out, once they’re discovered!

RADIUS Chardonnay

Chardonnay: Oak, Apple, Spice, Medium-bodied Washington- Welcoming toasted oak notes swirl around dried apricot, apple cobbler, and baking spice aromas. A rich palate filled with intense fruit and honey. Lingering residual sugar is balanced by acidity for a clean finish. A slight touch of toasty oak peeks thru too.

Merlot: Fresh, Vanilla, Raspberry, Medium-bodied Quite fruit forward and perhaps a touch sweet.

Washington- Flavors and aromas of sweet cherries, ripe red raspberries, succulent plums and vanilla leading to a soft and silky finish. Enjoy with red meats, grilled fish and sharp cheeses.

Radius Wine


Cabernet Sauvignon:Fresh, Black Cherry, Chocolate, Medium-bodied Washington- Aromas and flavors of currant, black cherry and red jammy fruit. Hints of toasty oak lead to a
long finish in this bold wine. Enjoy with red meats, game, sharp cheeses and dark chocolate. Very forward slightly sweet fruit.

Red Blend(We like this Delicious, Soft Easy Drinking Washington Red Blend even better than 14 Hands “Hot To Trot” Red!! But it is somewhat similar) Juicy, Black Cherry, Plum, Medium-bodied Washington- Flavors and aromas of juicy rich black fruit, ripe cherry and hints of toasted vanilla oak lead into a long and tasty finish with lingering fruit notes. Well-balanced with smooth tannins, and slightly sweet/fruit forward.

one of our all time favorite California “Bubblies”! This top notch well made California (Anderson Valley) “Champagne Method” Sparkling wine could hold its own in a line up of Real French Champagne!

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.

Reserve, (Bordeaux Blend) 2011 Walla Walla $159.99/btl Full price ($132.79*/btl. with full Wineaux Club discount)


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

Quilceda Creek Red Wine Blend. 1/3 the price of the famous Cab, and still one hell of a wine!

2008 Red Wine.cdr

Still have older vintages available too. EXTREMELY LIMITED on all these legendary, rare Washington Reds.

put your 4-WAYS on!! and pop in for a mixed case or two, or at least to pick up a few bottles of this or that, or those special pre-ordered wines or cases.
