amaraderie Cellars is a craft winery that celebrates the bounty of life found in food, wine, hearth and table and the friendships grown in their sharing. Camaraderie Cellars wines are counted among the "must have" by all those who enjoy wine. Our commitments are to making world class quality wines, valuing our growers as true partners, and deepening our customer's enjoyment of wine and food.

We hope you enjoy our wines and share our philosophy of sharing life's best gifts.

Don Corson has been making wine since 1981 when he started with 100 pounds of Eastern Washington grapes and made his first Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the next decade he joined a small but growing number of winemakers in the state with a passion for making wine with the hope of "going commercial".

In 1992 Don and his wife Vicki formed Camaraderie Cellars with a combination of hope, a small new building, great vineyard connections and a family philosophy that the best things in life are meant to be shared. Only 200 cases of that 1992 vintage was made but it earned a Gold medal at the Enological Society of the Pacific Northwest's annual judging. Since that time Don has increased production to about 3,500 cases of wines, the buildings have grown in number and size, and in critical acclaim locally and nationally.

Don's passion for winemaking stems from a multigenerational passion for good food. Family enjoyment of fruit and the tradition of canning the harvest's bounty evolved with Don to preserve the essence of the vineyard's crop in a different form - the bottle! Don believes that nothing is better than a good meal with good wine and good friends to share it with.

Sharing life's best is captured in the name of the winery he and Vicki chose, "Camaraderie" and the name of their flagship wine "Grâce". Camaraderie focuses on friends and sharing that goes deeper than just a good time together. "Grâce", in the French means thanks and blessing, elegance and charm, concepts that go beyond a label and represent a generous spirit, a way of doing things, and values that should be at the table and in life.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
