With the beginning of fall, Madrona wine bar Bottlehouse has rolled out several new features and changes.
Starting Friday, October 1, the bar will debut four rotating wine taps. This is a new trend in wine serving as it produces less waste and lowers the cost related from corks, bottles, etc. Already popular in California, wine taps are now starting to pop up in Seattle. The Bottlehouse taps will showcase wines from the downstairs Wilridge Winery as well as other artisan wineries from the Pacific Northwest. Going forward, the bar hopes to contract with local winemakers to develop its own custom blends.
Beginning Sunday, October 3, Bottlehouse will shift to fall hours. It will be closed Sunday and Monday, and open noon-11pm Tuesday-Thursday, noon-midnight Friday and Saturday.
You can see all the details in their newsletter on their Facebook page, including info about a new cheese offerings at happy hour and a new selection of bottled beers for Oktoberfest.
