Remember the Hyper Local Pont 21 Wine Made Right in Tacoma By the Three Bridges?
With the label created by artist and chalk off challenger Lance Kagey?
Update : Pont 21 Now carried by the Pacific Northwest Shop in Proctor
2702 N. Proctor

You've heard of wine cellars. Let's visit one. Here we are. 2621 N. 21st St. in Tacoma. Yes, the building isn't much to look at. A low-slung brick commercial block that's been around for years, and looks it.

It is. Also, Pont 21 is carried by Rosewood Cafe and Tacoma Wine Merchant.
Think of how much money Tacoma would have as a city if they kept all of the revenue from Wine inside the city.
Hmmm. Perhaps someone should consider opening a micro distillery in Tacoma.

|I'm getting thirsty, the NW shop does have a nice selection of Vino, and the Rosewood is easily with staggering distance.................|

|It will be interesting to see which one of these outlets sell the most Pont 21.|

|It is a great wine if I do say so myself. |
And I'm cranking out the custom labels as quick as I can.
Philip is a great winemaker or vintner for all you hoity-toitie folks.

|BTW, Bill sells his bottles for $16.99 per bottle which is one cent cheaper than the price point at Rosewood Cafe.
I don't know what Bill sell his PONT 21 for at The Wine Merchant but I do know he usually gives a 10 percent discount when people buy wine by the case.

|It's always a tough choice at the Rosewood, wine or beer, wine or beer. I've found mixing both doesn't kill you.|
