We are moving our wine production space from West Seattle to Kennewick, Washington.
Our tasting room in the Old Rainier Brewery building will remain. Tastings will continue weekly as usual. We are excited to take advantage of this amazing opportunity to grow our company in the heart of Washington wine country. Our wine making space will double in size and we are able to open a second tasting room east of the mountains. Anticipated opening in late July 2017. Along with another winery next door, there is a great brewery, restaurant, and hotel within walking distance. Here's an artist rendering for some perspective.
We look forward to talking to you more about it as time unfolds. Here is a great article that explains our move in more detail.

Who: You, your friends and family. Open to the public.
Details about the new wine:
2014 Tannat, Konnowac Vineyard, $32/bottle. 102 cases produced. Our first vintage of this variety. What is Tannat you ask? Here's the Wiki and an article about us from the Seattle Times. This is a full-bodied red wine with big tannins. On the nose are bright cherries with hints of cinnamon and allspice. We highly recommend decanting this young wine. Truly unlike any other grape.
2014 Malbec, Painted Hills Vineyard, Columbia Valley, $28/bottle. 99 cases produced. This north facing vineyard highlights a distinctly Washington terrior, making a Malbec like none other. Deep color leads to leafy tea components and crushed berries. Smooth tannin and bright acid make it a can't miss.
2016 Sauvignon Blanc, Konnowac Vineyard, Rattlesnake Hills, $17/bottle. 123 cases produced. This wine has citrus notes similar to a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and gooseberry flavors familiar to those produced in Bordeaux. Made in a stainless steel tank to keep it crisp, like spring-time in a glass. Oh, and it has a screw cap closure perfect for beaches, picnics, and camping.
This release introduces the 2014 vintage of our red wines all with the new white label. We'd love to hear what you think about the new design.
