    This is a great pizza wine and I think it hit it’s peak at some point in early last summer, shortly after they moved into the old Tefft Cellars space. I have found that a good after-work, weekday combination has been to order a take out pizza from “The Station” (enjoying a beer while you wait) and rolling down to Martedi for a quick tasting and some bottles to go. I also like the fact they have been staying open till 7PM.

    Just curious, where did you find this for $20/bottle?

    Absolutely a great weeknight pizza wine! Probably got it at a small store in Snohomish… just can’t remember the name. More and more great places in Woodinville to chill after work. The Station, The Commons, The Collective, Triplehorn, etc. They are all great hangouts!
    Martedi’s open ’til 7pm? Just like Tefft used to. That area’s turning into a Little Italy with Facelli long established there.
