For years, Iâ€™ve had friends tell me that they canâ€™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, Iâ€™ve set out on a mission to prove them wrong.
This is the eleventh in a series of posts to help you find great Washington State wines in the major cities and areas all around the country. Today, Iâ€™m searching for Washington State wine in the Boston, Massachusetts, area. Whether you live in Boston or travel there for work or pleasure, we want to help you be able to find and enjoy your favorite Washington wines.
Hereâ€™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 like. Finally, they need to be an online retailer as well, so that if you donâ€™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 Boston area retailer to recommend, Gordonâ€™s Fine Wines & Liquors in Waltham, Massachusetts, which has a good selection of Washington State wines at a variety of price points. Iâ€™ve found another retailer, Cape Cod Package Store in Centerville, Massachusetts, that has a good selection of lower-priced value Washington State wine, but you cannot buy online from them at this time. They just have a price list on their website. Iâ€™m hoping that some of our readers will weigh in with comments if you know of other Boston 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 donâ€™t hesitate to ask us any questions you might have about any of the Washington wines they are offering.
