Michael Cawdrey, former owner of the Red Apple Market and Wine Bar, is happy to be back in Fremont Village Square, managing the Wine Warehouse, a cute little space near Asteroid Cafe selling only wines under $25. Judging from the reaction on Yelp, Fremont is glad to have Cawdrey back. The Wine Warehouse has been open for a month and a half, and Cawdrey is seeing both new customers, and a few familiar faces from the Red Apple, which closed three years ago.
Cawdrey was once the senior wine educator at Columbia Winery in Woodinville, and is very knowledgeable about French, Italian, and local wines. The Wine Warehouse also has the technology to record a customer’s purchases, so that if a customer wants to buy the same wine that was purchased previously, Cawdrey can look customers up and find exactly what they want. The Wine Warehouse holds free tastings every Saturday in the evenings, and you can call the store at (206) 632-1110 to get on the e-mail list for other activities.
