seeking wine shop/Tacoma
Are there any good wine shops in Tacoma? Moving to town in about a month. Was in Pairings, which seemed OK, but small and rather New World oriented. Anything better in town?
CRC, You might try Vinotique Wine Shop. They are located just off 72nd in Lakewood. Along with a good wine selection, they have excellent breads and Italian deli items. The produce market (adjacent to Vinotique) offers a European approach to shopping for veggies and fruits. (Making it worth the drive.)
Wine Styles on Pearl has wine arranged by taste (bright, mellow, etc) which is kind of interesting.
I like Tacoma Wine Merchants on N. Tacoma Ave. near Stadium HS.
Metropolitan Market has an okay wine selection (on Procotor and n. 25th). And we have a Trader Joes too in Unversity Place!
There are also lots of wine bars - Pour at Four on Proctor; Cafe Divino on N. 30th; Vin Grotto on Pacific; and there's one off of Bridgeport in the UP area.
