Glacier Peak Winery is a small winery located in the upper Skagit River Valley with Glacier Peak in the distance. Our winery is surrounded by mountain peaks, bald eagles, and, of course, a glacier.
We have five acres which produce our Estate wines including Pinot Noir, Agria and a German grape called Siegerrebe (which produces a delicious white wine). We also produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot.
All wines at Glacier Peak Winery and Tasting Room are produced and bottled by Glacier Peak Winery. We do not purchase wine, either in bulk or bottled form, from any other winery nor do we bottle wine under any other label.
Our Pinot Noir, Siegerrebe, and Agria grapes are 100% estate grown in our vineyard, fermented into wine and bottled in our onsite winery here at Glacier Peak Winery.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, & Merlot grapes are purchased from premium Yakima Valley vineyards. The grapes are personally selected and transported by our winemaker to our winery for fermentation, aging, and bottling. All the winemaking takes place here at Glacier Peak Winery.
Glacier Peak Winery started the same way as many small wineries, a hobby that grew out of control. Beginning in 1998 this hobby of making our own wine quickly grew into a bonded winery. Grapes were carefully selected from vineyards in Eastern Washington to make our high quality wine. After acquiring all the necessary Federal and State licenses, we finally released our first vintage of wines.
The desire to make quality wine led to the need to grow quality grapes. Thus the establishment of Glacier Peak Vineyard in 2002. We have selected a site in the upper Skagit Valley with a high number of growing degree days and good drainage. In our vineyard we are growing Pinot noir, a well known grape of Burgundy origin; Agria, a red grape of Hungarian origin with a taste of black cherry and strawberries; and Siegerrebe, a German grape, which produces a light white wine with flavors of grapefruit and apricots.
Glacier Peak Winery produces some of the finest wines available from premium Washington State grapes. We utilize state of the art equipment and time-tested handcrafting to create our rich, full-bodied wines. At Glacier Peak we are committed to excellence, and our quality-over-quantity philosophy shows in every bottle. We are currently producing less than 1000 cases annually and wouldn't have it any other way. We hope you enjoy our wines!
