As a first-generation wine-making family, we're on a journey. We started from scratch with a lot of passion and a few bins of grapes that we fermented in the back of an old warehouse just outside of Seattle, WA. Since then, we’ve grown our production, built new relationships with friends and fans and moved our family and winery to a small farm and vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley. Ever since that humble start in the fall of 2011, however, we’ve remained committed to crafting small-lot, authentic, thought-provoking, high-quality Pacific Northwest wines.
We chose Washington State. We chose Walla Walla.
As our desire grew to trade in the safe and comfortable city life and our corporate jobs for the adventure of starting a winery, a bit of fortune stepped in. On a visit to a local wine shop in Chicago, Tim picked up a bottle of Walla Walla Merlot. From that moment on, Washington wine country was on our radar. Determined to build a classic family winery from scratch, we found that Washington was not only a great fit for our family and our winemaking ambitions, but we also found that the wines of the Columbia Valley were a perfect fit for what had emerged as our style.
Our vision is to inspire a farm-to-table lifestyle centered on sustainable living, a deep connection to those around us and a celebration of the many gifts we receive from the land. We aspire to grow our winery by producing exceptional wines that we’re proud to share with visitors to our farm and the like-minded friends we meet near and far.
