We are an owner operated store offering a carefully selected group of wines from around the world. We like to call them “wines with soul”
This wine comes from the family's tiny plot in the famous Ovello cru. It is a tiny half hectare section of Ovello, on a southwest facing slope facing the Tanaro river. The soils here are clay and limestone which are what give the wine the nervy acidity, mineral qualities and intense structure. The plot is so small that the entire production of this wine is aged in one large botti, only 2,600 bottles are made. This wine has stunning complexity and sweetness at the core, but the frame right now is firm and it is built for the long term cellaring. I would buy a few of these and tuck them away for at least 5 years, but really 10-15 sounds more appropriate.
We offer wines, in all price ranges that are selected by a group of 5 passionate wine lovers. Whether it’s something from our everyday drinking section, a local specialty, or a hard to find French or Italian wine we select them all with equal care.
In addition if you join our Wine Club or Soul Wine Society you receive 15% off our already competitive prices.
Owner Michael Teer has worked at Pike and Western since 1980, buying it in 1991. While still primarily a brick and mortar store our online presence is meant to not only enhance the business but give a sense of what the personality of the shop is. While wine is certainly Michael’s business it is also deeply integrated into his life.
We are located at the north end of Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market.
