Nectar Tasting Room was started as a wine blog (drinknectar.com) back in 2009. Josh Wade grew the blog from zero readers to over 12,000 readers each month ranking drinknectar.com as one of the most read wine blogs in the country. In January 2011, Josh used the momentum of drinknectar.com and the growing social media profiles to open Nectar Tasting Room. The goal of Nectar is to share the breadth of quality Washington wine with the wine lovers in the Spokane area AND to continue to promote the amazing wine scene in our region. Nectar Tasting Room is still ranked #37 of all wine sites on the internet according to Cellarer.com.
Josh is also the publisher of Spokane Wine Magazine and the owner of nectarMEDIA, a marketing company helping businesses navigate and position their brands more effectively online. Nectar Tasting Room was voted the best new business start up by Catalyst Magazine, 2nd best wine shop in the Krem2 Best of Spokane poll and was selected by Inlander readers as #2 wine bar in town (we know you can help us be #1 next year). Josh was also voted one of the top 20 business leaders under 40 and has been featured on MSNBC.com and in Alaska Airlines magazine. Nectar Tasting Room is a 2013 finalist in the Greater Spokane Incorporated AGORA Business Leadership Awards.
