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”
Albino Rocca is a rising star in Barbaresco. They used to be a winery that was a little heavy handed with oak, but in 2013, the winery decided to shift the style. They began backing away from the new, small oak barrels and went towards large botti and longer macerations with the goal of making a more traditional wine that reflects the natural terroir of this great region. As a staff we tasted this Barbaresco and everyone agreed, this is stunning wine. It's Barbaresco the way you read it should be, elegant, red fruited, but firm and incredibly age worthy. For $42 you would should have a few bottles of this in your life. With every coming year, these wines will get more expensive. 2016 is a very exciting vintage for the winery and by they time you read about them, they will have been long sold out.
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.
