Seattle Small Business Shout-Out — European Vine Selection

June 13, 2008

I like wine. I really do. Thus, this month, I raise my glass to the European Vine Selection, or EVS, a family-owned, small-scale wine shop on Capitol Hill. It’s a wine lover’s dream, complete with stacks upon stacks of both Washington and well-traveled wines, as well as handwritten cards detailing the contents of each bottle (the owners taste everything).

My personal favorite, attached to a 2004 California Sauvignon Blanc by Pepi Winery: “AWESOME!” the card read. Nothing more. Nothing less. And yes, the SB was pretty darn good. Top this off with an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable staff, and you’ve got something to shout-out about.

Check ’em out this weekend while you’re trolling the Capitol Hill Community Garage Sale tomorrow; they’re hosting one of their delightful Saturday tastings from 2 to 4 p.m. Up this week: Cascade Pinots. 522 15th Ave. E., at the junction of 15th & E. Mercer; open daily from noon to 7 p.m.
