About Our Wine Shop and Selection Process

"As a wine merchant I offer a service - specifically, I taste the bad wine so you don't have to! How many times have you gone to your local market to find a dizzying array of labels, grape varieties and pricing with no direction or assistance? Do you think that the clerk chose the wines, or was the decision "corporate"? We take the time to taste, educate ourselves, keep up with trends, vintages, and vinification techniques. The Wine Depot offers a grand selection of wines by the glass that are available to sample at no charge before you buy. All are personally selected for value and enjoyment. In addition to our Friday monthly wine tastings, we offer a "drop in" casual tasting every Wednesday evening at 5pm. Our wine advice is always free!" - Matt Morse , Proprietor

2003 “House Wine” -- Walla Walla Washington – Columbia Valley  Lot #3
Lot #2 sold out in 3 weeks. It was Merlot and Syrah.
This is the new blend. Cabernet 59% Merlot 31% Syrah 9% Cab. Franc 1%
This is the best one yet. The Cab gives it structure, the Merlot softness, the Syrah spice. The best $10.50 wine around!!!
