Columbia Winery was founded in 1962 during the birth of the Washington wine industry by a group of 10 people from Seattle, 6 of whom were University of Washington professors. Under the name "Associated Vintners", their goal was to bring european-style wine to Washington State. They began production in the basement of a Laurelhurst home and grew to one of the largest producers in the state. The winery has the distinction of being the first premium winery in the state as well as having the frist Master of Wine on the continent as their winemaker--David Lake. David Lake was instrumental in bringing several varietals, including Syrah, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, and Pinot Gris, into the state through a partnership with Mike Sauer, the owner of the Red Willow vineyard. Columbia Winery was the first in the state to commercially produce a Syrah, which has become one of Washington's most acclaimed varietals. Currently, Columbia Winery produces anything from a stylish Malbec, to their most popular Cellarmaster's Riesling, to beautifully crafted Syrahs and Cabernets, to a beautiful Bordeaux style blend named The Peninsula. The 2003 Otis Cabernet was awarded a spot among the top 100 wines in Washington according to the Seattle Times and the 2007 Small Lot Riesling, a lovely, crisp off-dry riesling was named the Northwest wine of the Week. They are open for tasting 7 days a week from 10-6. Tastings cost $5; a small price to pay for 5 tastes from a menu of 8 wonderful wines. The tasting room staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and prides themselves on educating visitors on Columbia Winery as well as Washington wine. Read less

Delicious! Sweet and slightly peppery, this wine drinks easily. It goes wonderfully with spicy Asian dishes.

Light golden straw color. On the nose, aromas of orange blossom and lychee express fully ripe fruit. Balanced slightly on the sweet side, the wine's tangy citrus peel flavors give it some body, leading to a medium-long finish. - WineryVarietal: 100% GewurztraminerAppellation: Columbia ValleyWinemaker: Kerry NortonTotal Acidity: 7.1 g/LpH: 2.92Residual Sugar: 24 g/LAlcohol: 12.1%Harvest Date September: 2009Bottling Date: March 2010Release Date: December 2010Cases Produced: 12,000 ** SOLD OUT **

Light straw color with aromas of grapefruit peel and lychee nut on the nose which carries through to the palate. Floral, clove and melon notes round out the finish. - Winery

Wine Tasting NotesThis classic Gewurztraminer accents aromatics of citrus, spicy peach and honeysuckle. Subtle spicy-sweet fruit flavors linger through a refreshing, tart finish.
