Welcome to Bothell's Wine Merchant

Welcome to the only wine shop in the state of Washington to specialize in old world wines. Have you been looking for wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Cotes du Rhone & Provence? Maybe you've just discovered the amazing Malbec's of Cahors or the killer Sancerre's of the Loire Valley and nobody you know has them? We do! Have the region of Italy always scared you so you always just go for a "Super Tuscan"? Maybe come by and try a nice Brunello di Montalcino or the king of wine...Barolo? Do you like Cigars? Who doesn't? But what about a nice Port with a cigar? You see where I'm going now? We carry over 100 years of tawny Port in the shop at all times! Why? Cause we are Port nerds! Maybe you want to try an older bottle of German Riesling? We have them. We carry producers that most wine shop owner have never seen or heard of. Come check us out. Our 550sqft shop might be the smallest in the state but with over 1200 producers...there's a reason why so many producers want to come and pour for our customers...it's because we are a real wine merchant...NOT a boutique wine shop! Wines start at $8 and we have a massive collection of wines that are only $13...we call these our daily drinkers. You want something rare...you got it! The Allman Brothers Band is always on! Get on the list for Domaine Tempeir Bandol Rosé, Raveneau & more!

  • Feb 24th...Come meet Sergio..winemaker and owner of Ettore Germano

    Tasting starts at 4pm
    $5 per person
    Last time Sergio came into town and did a tasting with us...it was more like a party. People were laughing, telling jokes, drinking wines and just having fun! What could happen this time?

    We've been asked by the higher-ups if we wanted to host Sergio for another tasting with his wines and well...I jumped at it. We carry the wines year round including the illusive Riesling that everyone has come to love and cherish.

    Here's the lineup
