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 fourteenth 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 other Washington, the Washington, DC, area. Whether you live in Washington, DC, or travel to our nationâ€™s capital for business or pleasure, we want to help you be able to find and enjoy your favorite Washington State 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 found three Washington, DC, area retailers, Calvert Woodley, Corridor Wine & Spirits, and DCWineGuy (Cairo Wine & Liquor). Calvert Woodley and DCWineGuy both have a decent selection of mostly value wines from Washington State, while Corridor has a very good selection at a variety of price points. Iâ€™m hoping that some of our readers will weigh in with comments if you know of other Washington, DC, area wine retailers with a good selection of Washington State 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 State wines they are offering.
