    Do you mean Oregon pinot? Washington isn't really known for growing that grape. You'd be better off asking for Bordeaux blends or Cab. Sauv.

    As for shipping....depends on which state you're shipping to :)

      Since you are on 1st you should check out The Spanish Table.
      Even though you mention Pinot their selection of Spanish wines is really nice. You should also be able to find a selection in the public market.

        This is a good, long-established, shop that has a focus on Northwest wines. It is at the north end of the Pike Place Market (corner of Pike and Western, as the name implies) and it should be an easy walk from where you are staying.

          Best wine store is Esquin but it is a distance from you, south of the stadium. They do ship though.

            Easily accessed via light rail though (1/2 block from the SODO stop) so not really that hard to get to from downtown.

              Second for Esquin. Great for both Oregon, Washington and European wines.

                It's also close to Garagiste, which just launched a small shop at their warehouse... won't be big on local stuff, but might be an interesting visit, none-the-less.

            Another direction to consider:

              Two other places in the market to consider:

              1. DeLaurenti (the excellent Italian grocer) has an upstairs wine shop that has a nice selection of WA wine.
              2. The Wines of Washington Tasting Room on Post Alley. This is a cooperatively owned/managed tasting room for seven Washington wineries.

              There are some Washington pinots but you would be better off shopping for Oregon pinot labels. You will find quite a few smaller producers here that don't have national distribution.

              Most of the places mentioned (except for the Spanish Table which doesn't carry NW wine -- only Spanish, Portuguese and South American wines) will have a selection of Oregon pinot noir. Esquin will have the best selection close to downtown.
