The Oyster Bar’s Wine Cellar
Can it be a perfect meal without a perfectly paired wine to accompany it? We don’t believe it’s possible! That’s why we at The Oyster Bar on Chuckanut Drive strive to fill our wine cellar with award winning wines to enhance your night-out experience.
Oyster Bar owner Guy Colbert and wine selector Amanda Abbott personally choose award winning wines from around the globe, covering every major wine-producing region in the world. We take great care in selecting wines that enhance the entire experience of dining at The Oyster Bar on Chuckanut Drive. Wines not only add a new dimension of flavor to dishes, but are an opportunity for you as a diner to experience the flavors of a different place and time.
In the 2005 Malvira San Guglielmo, diners can taste the flavors of Piedmont, Italy. The rare, luscious red wine opens with a nose of blackberry and tobacco and follows with hints of vanilla and leather on the palate.
Or diners can swing the villa windows open and smell the Atlantic waters of El Puerto de Santa María, Spain with a glass of Oloroso La Garrocha. The sherry wine is crafted on a family farm that’s been in business for nearly two centuries now. Your glass is served at room temperature and holds an almost sweet, nutty flavor with hints of the nearby ocean.
This month, we’ve added the Sancerre Rose from the tiny hamlet of Terre de Maimbray. Born in the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley, the rose wine tastes like a French summer feels. Aromas of white currant, apricot and peach accompany a soft, pale color. It’s a perfect choice for a light salad on a sunny day.
Collecting award winning wines like these leads to an award winning wine cellar. For 27 years now, The Oyster Bar on Chuckanut Drive’s selection has been voted as one of the outstanding Wine Lists of the World by the prestigious Wine Spectator Magazine. It’s an honor to be selected year-after-year, and we’re thrilled to offer you the opportunity to taste flavors from the around the world, while appreciating a view only the Pacific Northwest can provide.
