Readers’ Choice: Best Wine Shop
Winner: The Wine Shack, Cannon Beach
In announcing the award, Coast Weekend said this:
Store owners Steven and Maryann Sinkler try to offer just about anything a wine connoisseur could need at The Wine Shop in Cannon Beach.
The store offers a variety of wines, some from as far away as France, others as local as reds from the Willamette Valley, the Oregon Pinot Noirs or even a selection from The Wine Shack’s own line of Puffin wines. Many of the Puffin wines are well-decorated, including the 2018 Puffin Pinot Gris, which won a Double Platinum medal at the 2019 Platinum Wine Awards .
The shop, located in the heart of downtown, is also known for its Puffin tasting room, which is open on a daily basis starting at noon. Enjoy a selection of wine, beer or cider, either by the glass or flight. You can have a cheese or charcuterie board while there.
But above all, Steven said what he thinks makes The Wine Shack stand out is customer service and a shared love for what they do.
“This is an honor. There are a lot of great places to buy wine, and we’re thrilled our customers chose us,” he said. “We’re tasting and researching all the time. We love what we do, and I think our customers can see that.”
This year, The Wine Shack hopes to introduce a best value rack, featuring highly rated wines for a modest price, Sinkler said.
