Post #1  Postby KennethG » November 10th 2011, 8:51pm

Been lurking for a while. Tonnes (metric) of great info. My cousin is in Seattle this weekend. Having him grab a case or two of mixed wines. Any suggestions for a couple nicer/higher end retailers?
Thanks for any info.

I have also been meaning to check out David Leclaire's Wine World but just have not had a chance.

Eric I would skip wine world. I didn't see anything there that I couldn't get at my QFC or Albertsons in Gig Harbor.

I understand there's quite the selection at Costco, and you can buy liquor there, too. newhere

The wine selection at the Costcos I've been to haven't been anything to write home about. A couple years ago I bought some Pavie and Leoville-Las Cases (2005 vintage) at my local Costco (Gig Harbor). Since then, Nada.

It was a joke.
