Local wines get

top treatment

0/8 Seafood Grill and Twisted Cork Wine Bar is putting a local spin on wines.

0/8’s list is now organized first by varietal and then sorted by region within each varietal. Washington state wines begin each section (where applicable), making all local offerings easy to locate. Additionally, a different Washington wine region will be spotlighted each quarter this year.

A number of high-end, by-the-glass offerings are available, including: DeLille Cellars’ ’05 Doyenne Aix ($18 per glass), ’05 Spring Valley Uriah Red Blend from Ste. Michelle Wine Estates ($28 per glass), Betz Family Winery’s ’05 Clos de Betz Red Blend ($23 per glass, a just-released Bordeaux produced in extremely limited quantities).

SAUCE time
