Did you know that there was a Puyallup wine scene?  Wine Style’s is all about helping people find quality product at a great value.  I’ve gone to Wine Styles a few times in the past and I’ve always been impressed.  You don’t have to know anything about wine to get a great bottle and almost everything in the store is under $25 – with many fantastic wines to choose from at around the $10 mark.   I talked a little bit with Janet Stewart, the owner of the Puyallup location, for a while yesterday and she is a great help if you are looking for wine and don’t know exactly what you are looking for.  They divide their wines into “styles”, fruity, bold, dry, etc., so you just let them know what flavor you are looking for and they’ll help guide you from there.  I like sweeter wines, which I had thought meant you had to drink white wines, but Janet proved me wrong and pulled out a bottle of a really great sweet red wine.  I got exactly the flavor I was looking for in a red wine with some health benefits to boot.

VinturiBesides showing me some great wines and her selection of great beers, she also showed me a really cool wind gadget, the Vinturi Wine Aerator.  With the Vinturi you get all the taste benefits associated with decanting wine without all the fuss.  All you do is pour the wine through the Vinturi and into your glass and it draws just the right amount of air into the wine to allow it to instantly breathe for a much smoother finish.  We did a blind taste test and it was very obvious which glass had the Vinuri wine in it!

Wine styles also offers a great wine club – kind of like a book club but with wine.  This will help expose you to wines you might not have tried otherwise and with membership you get discounts on other items.

About Firstlight Photography

Kier is from Orange County and Mitzi is from just outside Chicago. We both moved to Seattle in June of 1995- but it took until 2006 for us to actually meet. We saw the same concerts and we both had the same Capitol Hill sushi haunt but it took over 10 years for our paths to finally cross. When they did we had no idea that our careers would collide into a fabulous partnership. We share a common love of music and photography. Kier caught the photo bug years ago and Mitzi always had a love of art and a mind for business. When we aren’t out on a photo shoot you can find us roller skating with our kids, hosting Martha Stewart eat your heart out dinners (Kier is the chef & Mitzi is the baker), watching movies -we share a love of “Strange Brew” (which should be slightly embarrassing, but we own it), or doing DIY projects with our insanely crafty kiddos. We are located between Seattle and Tacoma any frequently travel throughout Washington, Oregon and California. You can book us for your destination wedding or event and we will give you a reasonable travel quote (our passports are ready). Life is good and we work hard to convey this in our work. There is nothing more rewarding that receiving a note from a client’s mother thanking us for doing a great job on her daughter’s wedding photos. Call us and we will do a phone consultation or meet over coffee to talk about your photography needs, answer questions and, if we are a good fit, we can devise a variety of package options.
