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 twelfth in a series of posts to help you find great Washington State wines in the major cities and areas all around the country. Today, I’m searching for Washington State wine in the Las Vegas, Nevada, area. Whether you live in Las Vegas or travel there for a conference or, more likely, for pleasure, 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 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 two Nevada retailers to recommend, Total Wine and More in Las Vegas and Booze Bros. in Sparks, Nevada. I’m hoping that some of our readers will weigh in with comments if you know of other Nevada wine retailers with a good selection of Washington wines. There’s also no doubt that you can find some good Washington wines at a number of the Las Vegas area casino resorts, but that’s out of the scope of this post.
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.
Total Wine & More, Boca Park, 730 S. Rampart Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89145
Booze Bros., 82 Coney Island Dr, Sparks, NV 89431
