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!

  • 2017 La Bargemone Cuvee Maria Rosé Release & Friends

    Friday May 25th at 4pm
    Okay people...last year this was one of the most requested rosé in the shop...the only problem was...it went away pretty damn fast. Now thanks to the Euro the price has gone up a few bucks but the quality is the same. No, let me rephrase that...the quality is much better. I know its hard to imagine that but the 2017 vintage has been blowing everyone away and after what I tasted today....I buying big and holding!

    Now, we will also have some daily drinking rosé from the '17 vintage as well but I really want you all to focus on Cuvee Maria because once it's gone...its gone. Stellar rosé but less made.

    If I were you...I'd pick up a six-pack and milk it through the summer. Being that its a 6pack case...you'll get 10% off so that brings the bottle cost down to $31 and change. You can't even buy Tempier at that price. Yes, I mentioned Tempier and Cuvee Maria in the same sentence.

    So here's the shakedown...

    We'll have 5 rosé, 3 that are limited. It's up to you to decide if you want to show up and pick up some amazing rosé before the holiday weekend. The shop will be closed on Saturday and open back up on Thursday. Do you need to stock up? Maybe you should make a trip in?

    See you all Friday
