The Reason

Black Door Wine Company has relocated in Tacoma

Please note our new address:

1215 Earnest S. Brazill St. (aka S. 12th St.), Tacoma, WA 98405 206.359.0466

The wines were delivered with care & placed on the store shelves in the new location. Now after having accomplished this herculean task I’m ready for our first tasting.

Black Door Wine Company

 is thrilled to taste the Barolo Wines of the Oddero Estate from the Lange Hills, Piedmonte, Italy, and Spanish wines on Saturday, November 7, 2015.

The tasting is from 4:00p – 7:00p. 10 wine tasting fee $15

Sommelier Avery Genge will introduce us to the Barolo region, the Nebbiolo grape, the philosphy of the winemaking. So, arrive early rather than late for this engaging evening!

Sommelier Sarah Nugent will be pouring some special Spanish wines, guiding us with her keen knowledge of these wines.


The Oddero Estate and Winery is similiar to a natural terrace overlooking the hills of Langhe Piedmonte still producing wines exclusively from grapes grown in family-owned vineyards.


We’re excited with this new venture and the new Black Door
location is vibrant. Innovation and
a changing Hilltop landscape is around as I settle in our new location.
I’m thrilled to channel my passion and energy into my love of wine once again
at this new location always tasting and stocking notable wines from wine makers around the world.

Be happy and drink good wine!
