Scott and Allison Helfen opened The Wine Alley in Renton, WA in 2005. In 2015, current owners Touré and Charisse Sam bought the wine shop four months after moving to Seattle and falling in love with exploring wine country in the Pacific Northwest. 

Over the years, Touré and Charisse have kept up the same great service and excellent selection for which The Wine Alley became known. The couple also offer wine and beer by the glass, weekly tasting nights, and monthly wine clubs with must-try reds, whites, and champagne.

  1. What a great little wine shop. Went there a couple weeks ago on a Saturday with my girlfriends and had such fun. We did a wine tasting and had some snacks. Great escape for the rainy day. Toure was very knowledgeable and helped us pick out some delicious wines. Cozy and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely be back.
