For years, I’ve had friends tell me that they can’t find the great Washington State wines that I tell them about where they live. So with the help of Wine-Searcher.com and a lot of legwork, I’ve set out on a mission to prove them wrong.
This is the ninth in a series of posts to help you find great Washington State wines in the major cities and areas all around the country. So far, the series has featured New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, and Austin. Today, I’m searching for Washington State wine in the Denver, Colorado area. Whether you live in Denver or travel there during ski season, we want to help you be able to find and enjoy your favorite Washington wines.
Here’s the format: To be selected, a store first has to have a Wine-Searcher.com rating of 4 or higher on a scale of 1 to 5 for customer service, reliability, etc. Next, it has to stock Washington State wines that we really like. Finally, they need to be an online retailer as well, so that if you don’t live close enough to the store to drop in, you can still purchase their wines.
Based on these strict criteria, I can only find one Denver area retailer to recommend, Davidsons Liquors, a wine, beer, and spirits superstore in Highlands Ranch, which has an excellent selection of Washington State wines at a great variety of price points. I’ve found two other retailers, Chambers Wine & Liquor and Heritage Wine & Liquor, that have good selections of Washington State wine, but you cannot buy online from either of them at this time. I’m hoping that some of our readers will weigh in with your comments if you know of other Denver area wine retailers with a good selection of Washington wines.
When you visit one of these stores, please let me know how you find their service and selection, and don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you might have about any of the Washington wines they are offering.
