About the Wine Seller
Established in November 1982, in Port Townsend, Washington, by Joe Euro. Joe was tired of stuffy and somewhat snobby wine shops he'd experienced in cities where he had lived. His vision was to establish a very "user friendly" atmosphere, where wine knowledge and customer service were to be available to wine "newbies" as well as seasoned wine drinking/collectors and connoisseurs alike. In the spring of 2007, we moved to a larger location.
Being one of the oldest, best-regarded and established wine shops in the State of Washington, the Wine Seller is able to obtain and stock some rare and highly allocated wines, when available -- such as Quilceda Creek, Leonetti Cellars, Woodward Canyon, Silver Oak, Spottswood, Pahlmeyer, Shafer "Hillside Select" -- as well as newer Washington and Oregon "Superstars" such as Walla Walla Vintners, 5 Star Cellars, DeLille Cellars, L'Ecole #41, Ken Wright, Sinnean, Owen Roe, and many more!
More About Joe Euro
I was in "Fine Dining" as a waiter in Chicago, Seattle, Port Townsend, and the Virgin Islands. I became the wine buyer/Sommelier for Lonny Ritter's restaurant, The Lido, back in the late '70s/early 80's. I learned that little-known secret then about how all the Washington State Wine/Beer distributors have to "post" their current and/or temporary prices with the Washington State Liquor Contol, and charge all Licensees the same "per bottle" price! No volume discounts, no "Big Box Store" discounts, etc. So when Joe wanted to switch to a "day job" and keep evenings open for guitar gigs, the proverbial "light bulb" went off over his head, and he realized he could sell wines and beer retail in Port Townsend at a fair and competitive price. With his knowledge of the distributors gained while being Lonny's "Sommelier", Joe knows how to get the goods. And the rest is history.
