Richard Kinssies would be a jack-of-all-trades, if every trade were somehow related to wine. Kinssies has been directing the Seattle Wine School since he founded it in 1981, he has been a wine columnist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer since 1982, and he is the author of The Art of Wine Tasting. Kinssies’ latest project is Wine Outlet–– a shop stocked with a selection of bottles he culls from wineries and tornado shelters around the world. His handpicked vintages are available at the shop, in the soon-to-be-unveiled online store, or via the Seattle Wine Club, whose members receive a carefully curated case of wine either monthly or quarterly.
“The classes were very educational! Every bottle of wine I have bought has been delicious and cheaper than anywhere else! It's my new favorite place to go for wine. ”
