OUR STORY
FairWinds Winery was established in 1993 by two retired Coast Guard couples. Our Tasting Room opened its doors in 1996. The winery is now owned by one of the original couples, Micheal and Judy Cavett. Its aim is to produce some of the lesser known Washington State varieties along with the more mainstream Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Port Townsend has a long maritime heritage, and our former careers were involved with the sea where the phrase, "Fair winds and following seas..." is a special salute to a fellow mariner. Our label recalls those days when "fair winds" brought exotic cargoes from around the world. We wish you "fair winds and following seas" and believe the ship on this bottle will bring you a refreshing experience from the wonderful world of wine flavors!

FairWinds Winery relies on some of the best growers in the Yakima Valley to provide top quality fruit which is hand picked, transported to the winery, fermented in small, highly monitored lots and made into FairWinds medal winning wines. We predominately use American oak but sometimes a blend of American, French and Hungarian will be what works best.

Our reds are bottled without filtration and both reds and whites are given just the minimum amount of sulfites to ensure freshness and longevity. Our average production is around 1,000 cases per year and our wines are available at the winery, a few local outlets, online and through our wine club.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

  Best Books of the Year

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
