J. Strecker Selections Kicks Off!

They’re here – the first container of wine from France arrived last Friday and they’re as delicious as we thought they would be.  For those of you who don’t know, Jens and I started an importing subsidiary last year (J. Strecker Selections) which was formed in answer to WA State’s liquor law changes, allowing retailers to import/distribute and vice versa.  We saw a huge opportunity to serve our Portalis clientele as well as the greater Seattle wine-buying community by importing wines that Jens knows (through his years of being a wine merchant selling wine directly to you) that you will like and will be good value for the money.

So, here’s a little tickler on the wines that are here.  And stay tuned because we’ve got another container with a different line of French wines arriving at the beginning of July, a container from Spain due in in August, and September brings our first line from Italy. As well, we’ll be adding Argentina to the mix throughout the summer.

We’ll be hosting a kick off party on Friday, June 17 (SIGN UP>) & here’s the tasting list:
