Janet

Richard & Lynda, Proprietors

Richard and Lynda have traveled the world together for over 35 years.  Using his access to vineyards and wine cellars, Richard expanded his personal knowledge and passion for wine in a way that many of us only dream of.  Valuing the importance of superb customer service, they believe that every customer's need is important.  Whether searching for the perfect bottle of wine to take to dinner, or scouring the globe for that hard to find case of wine from some obscure vineyard - every customer request is important to Laurelhurst Wine Merchants.

 

Janet, Store Manager

Janet was bitten by the wine bug via 20+  years in the restaurant business in her home state of Ohio.  She moved to the Seattle area in 2002, received her Sommelier Diploma from the International Sommelier Guild in 2005, and has worked in the wine business since, both in distribution and retail.  A self-proclaimed "acid freak" and "bubble-head", she is particularly fond of zippy whites, addicted to sparkling wines and loves French and Italian reds.  Mission in life?  To experience the world one glass at a time.
