The Grape Choice

The Grape Choice has been Kirkland’s finest wine merchant for over 30 years! We have evolved over the years into a local hangout and wine bar as well as maintaining a high standard of wines for purchase in our store. We love helping our customers pick out a new favorite wine, fine gift, cellar worthy purchases, or a great bottle to enjoy on our patio. For a party or 50 cases for a fundraiser, we can handle it.

Each Month

We offer a selection of wines by the glass and bottle for tasting. See this months special list of Wines by the Glass and Bottle. Check back each month for the new selections. And while you’re at it, make sure to have a look at our tasty new Wine Bites Menu below.

All wines subject to a corkage fee as follows:
375mL - $3
750mL - $5
1.5L - $10


Corkage Fee

There is no corking fee for Wine Club members.

Offsite wines will be opened if we do not carry that wine in our store for a corking fee of $15.

Why do we charge a corking fee? Well it’s simple. We pay rent for a premium space in downton Kirkland that is large enough for us to sell wine retail and also provide you with a nice place to sit and enjoy your wine, like our phenomenal patio! Those extra costs have to be accounted for when we do our pricing.



We have a small selection of pre-prepared wine bites available for purchase in the store and you are also more than welcome to order food from any of our neighboring businesses and enjoy them in our establishment. Be on the lookout for special seasonal platters available throughout the year!

About Us

The Grape Choice

is owned by community members Larry Springer (State Representative 45th District) and Penny Sweet (Kirkland City Mayor).
To Penny and Larry wine is more than what ends up in your glass. Besides the art of a finely crafted bottle of wine, there is its story which includes the wine, the winery, its history, its people and the experiences they have had. This is part of what we try to share with you at our shop.

We don’t take ourselves very seriously at The Grape Choice, we reserve that for our product. We offer a tremendous local selection as well as an incredibly broad domestic and international portfolio at a wide variety of price points.

We pride ourselves on being able to help our customers with wine pairings for any occasion or meal. We can handle orders of all sizes, whether you just want that one special bottle or you need two cases for a party or 50 cases for a fundraiser, we can handle it.

Penny and Larry have put their blood, sweat, and tears into making The Grape Choice a place where people can find wines they can trust, an atmosphere where you like to hang out, and they built nearly every piece of furniture themselves!

Penny's Wine Cave
