Whether you’re playing video games, standing at your stove stirring a bolognese recipe from the internet, or simply staring out the window, there are many activities at home that could be improved with a glass of wine. And maybe you already have a bottle of Pinot Grigio in the back of your fridge forming ice crystals, but we recommend skipping that and ordering from one of these restaurants and wine shops instead. All of these 14 places have great selections, whether you’re looking for some unfiltered orange wines or a nice bottle of Champagne.
Our favorite wine bar in town always sells natural bottles to-go, and they’re open as a contact-free, curbside operation from 2-8pm. Check them out if you’re bored with your local supermarket’s selection and you want to try something funky.
DeLaurenti is an Italian grocery market and cafe at Pike Place Market, and their wine list is extremely long - so if you want a wide variety of choices, head in their direction. For a small fee, they do same-day delivery within Seattle from Monday-Friday, and this especially comes in handy when you want an entire snack spread to go with your drinks, like olives, nuts, truffled potato chips, and prosciutto. Place an order on their website, and you can check out their entire wine list here.
Champagne Diner is now operating as a bottle shop where you can order online and pick up your purchase from their Interbay parking lot. And if you misplaced your corkscrew or sparkling wine stopper, you can stock up on those, too.
Juicebox Cafe understands the true meaning of balance - they’re a smoothie bar that also devotes a few shelves to sell wine. Their selection of natural bottles is curated by Left Bank, and they’re open for pickup-only from Wednesday-Sunday (11am-5pm). Stay updated by checking out their Instagram.
Bottlehouse in Madrona has you covered if you can’t decide what kind of wine mood you’re in. Local, French, orange, sparkling - they have everything.

This sister bar to Bottleshop in the University District is selling bottles of wine as well - they’ve categorized their pickup and delivery options by price, so you can sort through what’s available based on how much you want to spend.

Check out the bottle list and place your order here.
La Dive is the only wine bar in the area that’s offering delivery, which is great if you’re still working on your deck of cards pyramid and can’t leave your apartment. All you have to do is order $75 worth of great bottles of natural wine, and Venmo them. Check their Instagram for more information.
This pizza spot in Ballard has transformed into a wine and beer shop from 2-8pm, so it’s perfect if you want dinner and drinks from one convenient stop. The pizza starts at 5pm, so plan accordingly.
Speaking of pizza places also selling wine, Mercato Stellina is a great Eastside choice. Grab a bottle and a sopressata pie and your coffee table date night is set. Even if your date happens to be with your iguana.
To be clear, you’re going to Union Saloon to grab an order of their amazing homemade chips and onion dip. But while you’re there curbside, definitely pick up a bottle of wine - their entire list is 50% off and really long.
If you need somewhere to fulfill your wine and caffeination quota at the same time, Petite Soif sells bottles of natural wine as well as coffee beans from Olympia Coffee Company - as well as snacks and bread.
Vif is doing the same thing as Petite Soif, just in Fremont instead of Beacon Hill.
This French restaurant in the Central District is a great place for natural wine.
