About Us

The wine mind behind this operation is Jens Strecker, native German and former anesthesiologist & emergency doc, turned wine merchant. Jens has a huge following of people who know he can help them find the wines they are looking for in the no-nonsense, unpretentious style that’s so appealing to his clientele. He originally started Portalis Wine Shop + Wine Bar (on Ballard Ave) with his wife, Julie Howe, in 2003. In 2011 they expanded into the import business, starting J. Strecker Selections, a direct import company focusing on wines from the Old World. At the end of 2014, they celebrated the end of an era on Ballard Ave (and the end of 12 years of the wine bar), moving the shop to its new location (on the corner of 15th Ave NW & NW 70th Street) and allowing them to devote all of their time to the wine shop & their growing import business.
