Back again this year! EIEIO & Company's first vintage was in 1998 with a mere 200 case production.  What began as a purely négociant pursuit has grown into a fully bonded 1,800 case operation.  To date, EIEIO & Company produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but it is unlikely that you will find mention of the wines in any wine publications.  The winery is motivated by the attainability of the best possible wine not by competitions, ratings, trends, or publicity.
 
July 24 : J. Scott Winery- http://www.jscottcellars.com
J. SCOTT CELLARS
is a small boutique wine producer that features wines of the Pacific Northwest.

The bounty of the Pacific Northwest is truly exceptional. Within 50 miles of the winery are locally grown nuts, fruits and vegetables. Wild truffles and mushrooms are also abundant locally if you know where to look.  If that weren't enough, we also have grass fed lamb and beef, amazing seafood and artisan cheeses.  The menu pairings with our wines are endless.  We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor from this land that we love.

 
July 31 : Et Fille- http://www.etfillewines.com
Back again this year! Et Fille Wines is a small, family-run, Oregon winery specializing in premium boutique pinot noir and viognier wines.  Et Fille, which means "and daughter", honors the hand-in-hand, father and daughter team of Howard Mozeico and Jessica Mozeico-Blair that makes these wines.  They are passionate about the differences in wine characteristics based on the soil type of the vineyard.  Howard and Jessica personally touch the grape clusters, fermenters, barrels, and bottles that eventually become their wine.  They deal in small lots of grapes, small fermentation lots and small oak barrels.

August 7: Andrew Rich- http://www.andrewrichwines.com
Named one of Wine & Spirits magazine's top 100 wineries of 2009, Andrew Rich Wines has been crafting distinctive wines in Oregon's Willamette Valley since 1995. Along with Pinot Noir, Rhône Valley varietals from the Columbia Valley--including Syrah, Roussanne, Grenache, and Mourvèdre--take pride of place, though the winery is equally well known for its seductive Gewürztraminer dessert wine. Production averages 5,000 cases per year.

August 14 : Westrey Wines
- http://www.westery.com
Westrey Wine Company was founded in 1993 by co-winemakers Amy Wesselman and David Autrey, along with David’s father, Robert Autrey, in Oregon’s burgeoning Willamette Valley. Amy and David focus on crafting elegant Pinot Noir wines, fruit-driven Burgundian-style Chardonnay and crisp, refreshing Pinot Gris. The wines are designed to be balanced and ageworthy, always complementing and enlivening the food with which they are served.

August 21: Bergstrom Winery - http://www.bergstromwines.com
Back again this year! Bergstrom Winery believes that winemaking begins and ends in the vineyard. The winegrowing process must be a natural one, respecting progress of the growing season, harvesting the fruit by hand only when it has reached physiological maturity and allowing a fermentation to take place that is driven by the vineyard's indigenous yeast strains. We believe that Oregon Pinot Noir must have purity of fruit that can only be achieved through non-industrial, artisan winemaking.

August 28: WillaKenzie Estate- http://www.willakenzie.com
WillaKenzie Estate, a small family owned winery dedicated to producing Oregon wines with the highest possible expression of Willamette Valley terroir.  WillaKenzie’s  Oregon Pinot Noir, Oregon Pinot Gris, Oregon Pinot Blanc as well as small amounts of Oregon Pinot Meunier, Oregon Gamay Noir and Oregon Chardonnay are all produced from fruit grown sustainably on our Willamette Valley Estate and reflect our French heritage.  Take a virtual tour of our Willamette Valley Estate, or better yet, come visit us and taste Oregon terroir at its best.

September 4: Milbrandt Vineyards - http://www.milbrandtvineyards.com
Farming is in our blood. Our parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles all made their living working the land. Eastern Washington is in our blood. We came here as young children and have always called it home. When we planted our first vines in 1997 we were entering uncharted territory. Today, we farm 12 distinct estate vineyard sites totaling nearly 2,000 acres. Our grapes are purchased by some of the most prestigious wineries in the state. Our own winery, launched in 2005, produces highly-individualistic wines from our estate and neighboring vineyards.

September 11: The Wood House Wine Estates - http://www.thewoodhousewineestates.com
We craft wines that are terroir-driven with luscious, complex fruit. We focus on balance and restraint, so our wines age very well. Like many of the most respected wineries in Europe, we release wines a bit later than most so they have time to rest, integrate, and express their fullest flavor complexities.

Owners, and husband and wife team, Bijal and Sinead Shah, started Woodhouse Wine Estates with Bijal’s uncle, Tom Campbell, in 2004.  Joining a group of other winery greats in Woodinville, Woodhouse quickly drew attention with our beautifully crafted wines. Our flagship wine, Darighe, which means “red” in Gaelic, was so named after Sinead’s Irish roots. Next, we introduced Dussek and Maghee, named after family friends. Finally we created Kennedy Shah and Hudson Shah, named after our daughter and son.
