Dorn's Is A Wine Enthusiast's Dream Come True

As I stepped into the cool, dark store nestled in the Fresh Market, Upper Crust, Northwest Seafood plaza off 16th and 43rd, I saw a welcoming familiar smile greet me. It was Randy, long time employee and expert wine enthusiast. Randy has been working for Dorn's for quite a while now. Whether you are a novice wine drinker or a seasoned sommelier, you will never be disappointed by his vast knowledge of the wines they feature from around the globe. Cheese, fine meats and olives are also in abundance here.  But of all the things precious about Dorn's,  I most enjoy listening to Randy's florid descriptions and knowing that regardless of what he selects, my guests are sure to enjoy.  Don't worry about snobbery either, even though his knowledge is vast, Randy is not going to turn his nose up to you for selecting a price point of $10 or under. On the contrary, he usually patiently explains why some $8 bottles can rival some of their pricier selections.
So, if you're looking for wine, great service and a way to support local commerce, do yourself an immense favor and stop at Dorn's!
