Welcome to Fremont Avenue Cellars, your friendly, affordable wine shop serving all of Seattle from the Center of the Universe, Seattle's Fremont Neighborhood. Michael and Sally, the shop's proprietors, are knowledgeable and passionate about wine - a combination that gives you, the consumer, a positive experience when you are looking for wine (note our near 5-star rating on Yelp).
Our philosphy is this: You don't need to spend a lot of money to get a great bottle of wine. That is why we specialize in high-quality wines under $25 (truthfully, most of them are under $20). We like nothing better than tasting a wine and thinking "oh, this is going to be expensive!" and then finding out we can actually offer it to our customers at a reasonable price. For those special occasions when only a bottle of French Champagne or one of Italy's famed Barolos will do, we also have a selection of carefully chosen higher priced bottles.
Whether you are looking for a wine from Washington or France, California or Portugal or anywhere else across the world, we either have it or will make every effort to get it for you.
On Fridays and Saturdays we feature tastings with various themes. Sometimes a winemaker makes a special appearance at our shop. Ever heard of David O'Reilly wines? David makes Corvidae, Owen Rowe and O'Reilly wines and he visits our shop personally for a tasting every April. Boutique wineries and new, small stand-out producers are often featured. When we are able to get something extra special we want to bring it to you! Check out our calendar of upcoming events to see what is happening at Fremont Avenue Cellars.
In a world quickly being taken over by overwhelming "big box shops," it is so nice to find a friendly, affordable place to shop that still offers good ol' fashioned personal service. We pride ourselves at getting to know our customers and their individual tastes in wine. That helps us to tailor our stock to what our clientele wants. So come in and explore - your palate, our wines, the world. All of this, right near the corner of Fremont Avenue N and 36th street.
