Vashon Winery is a tiny “garagiste” winery producing less than 600 cases of wine annually. Garagiste is a moniker used in Bordeaux, France to describe garage-size wineries who make exceptional wines without owning their own vineyards. The winery is centrally located on Vashon Island, and the island itself is located in the middle of Puget Sound, a fifteen-minute ferry ride to West Seattle, or Pt. Defiance in Tacoma, or Souhworth on the Kitsap Peninsula. Reflecting the location, Vashon Winery has customers from all three markets. Vashon Winery sells its wines through about forty loyal retail accounts, mostly retail wine shops and grocery stores with wine managers. We also sell to a few restaurants. We do about a third of our business, however, out our front door, mostly on Saturdays, but increasingly at winery events. We also sell our wine at the Vashon Saturday Market. We produce about an equal mix of our standard stable of wines: Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and our Reserve Red (a blended wine of red grapes), all from grapes purchased in vineyards located in eastern Washington. Additionally, we make wines from locally harvested grapes such as Chasselas Doré from Vashon Island, Pinot Noir, also from Vashon, and other cool climate grapes from vineyards located in the Puget Sound AVA. Our wines are different. They are structured wines that improve with age. They have a bit more acidity than many of the modern wines being sold, and they have a richer tannin level without the high alcohols of newer wines. Read less
