About J. Strecker Selections


J. Strecker Selections is a wine import & distribution business founded by Portalis Wines owners Jens Strecker & Julie Howe. Drawing upon Jens’ vast wine knowledge, his European heritage, and his long history of world travel, they seek to revisit the Old World (as well as some New World lands) to find undiscovered, delicious, well-priced wines, representative of their respective wine growing areas to import into Washington State.

For some time Jens & Julie had dreamt of an import business, keen on utilizing Jens’ experience as a wine merchant and his ability to choose great wines for the price while further creating price advantage by cutting out the middleman for Seattle wine buyers. When WA State wine laws changed in December 2009 allowing retailers to direct import, they jumped at the opportunity. Since then, they have been busily at work, selecting, purchasing and organizing the movement of these wines from their homes around the world to Seattle port. With the help of their team, they will introduce them to Seattle wine buyers via Portalis as well as your restaurants, wine shops and grocery stores.
