Shelly Cabrales

Store Manager

Shelly, originally from Omaha, discovered the wine world in the summer of 2018 when she began working for Compass Wines in Anacortes, Washington. A natural curiosity led Shelly to ask a myriad of questions that customers also bring to the table. She brings knowledge of Washington and Oregon wines as well as a passion and fondness for Old World wines. As a former bartender, she’s used to sizing up a variety of concerns and delivering the best product with a smile. In other words, her answers cut to the chase without spilling over with flowery language.

Shelly has intense passion for wine, live music, singing karaoke, and spending quality time with friends and family. She is engaged to her best friend, Brian.  They recently purchased their first home, and are looking forward to exploring the wine, food, and music hotspots in their new neighborhood.
