Two energetic, twenty-something Seattlites launched Hightower Cellars with an idealistic fantasy of creating an exceptional, high-quality wine that would enhance enjoyment of everyday life. Renting a non-descript warehouse space in Woodinville--former home to a few prominent wineries in Washington State--the young couple dove into their dream while keeping their day jobs. Months of hands-on cellar rat work and diligent research in their free time paid off with ovations of their inaugural release of 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon. Case production steadily increased from 220 to 1200 cases over the next six years, along with a purchase of pristine vinifera-worthy real estate on Red Mountain, complete with water rights-a rare & unusual find in a Washington agricultural region. Kelly & Tim Hightower, one of Washington State's first married co-winemakers, compose delicious, supple, age-worthy Merlots and Cabernet Sauvignons from a wide array of vineyards in three distinct appellations.
