Wine World: David LeClaire’s New Project

by Shona Milne on August 5, 2010

I had heard that David LeClaire was planning on opeing a “Wine Superstore” in the Seattle area. Wine World is currently in the funding stage but there are big plans in the works. You can get more information from David at Seattle Uncorked. You can now follow them on Twitter @WineWorldSea

WINE WORLD will establish itself as the largest wine store in the Northwest, a full-service retail warehouse of wine which carries a wider variety of wines than any other merchant in the Seattle or Portland metro areas. WINE WORLD will provide better selection, better service, and easier accessibility than any of its competitors. The warehouse concept will reinforce the “discount” image and be an important marketing element as we capitalize on the increased demand for wines at affordable price points.WINE WORLD will be located only minutes from downtown Seattle, in the middle of a range of relatively affluent neighborhoods. Yet because of its visibility to over 100,000 daily on Interstate 5 and easy accessibility, as well as the scale of the store, WINE WORLD will also be a destination wine store for the Puget Sound region.

Our mission is to become the most well-known wine store in the Seattle area and grow into the one-stop shopping location for the majority of wine enthusiasts in the Northwest. While neighborhood wine stores serve their respective neighborhoods with limited inventory and typically higher prices, our plan is to serve those looking for either better pricing, service, selection, or all of the above.

Wine World’s motto will be “If we don’t have it, we’ll get it!”

I heard you might be the guy to ask about any regulations for serving tastings of wine at public community event. Where would I find this information?

You might want to contact Liquor Control about what permits you might need or ask the facility you might be using. P.S. I’m a girl;)
