In the heart of Wallingford there is a winery, Solera Bravo Wines. Well, it is technically a winery, but more specifically it is a vermoutherie.

Well, this isn’t exactly at the level of UFOs being definitely revealed to be aliens from another world or a “Loch Ness Monster” emerging from Lake Union, but … In walking around south Wallingford (between about Wallingford Ave and Eastern and south of 40th), I couldn’t help but notice lots of lines painted on the […]
