testimonials 

“Storied Wines has been a fantastic supplier for Cascadia Liquor Stores.  We focus on quality local products and their portfolio reflects a great selection of local wines, ciders and spirits.
Mark’s strength has been in helping introduce these products to our teams and our guests.  He has presented both Master Classes and multiple tastings and we can always rely on him to do what he says and support what he sells.
High quality of service is a strong value for Cascadia Liquor and we do our best to provide it and value it greatly when we find it with key suppliers.”
