Queen Anne Winery
Queen Anne Winery started as an antidote for the rising price of Piedmont and California wines. Twenty years ago I realized I was living in an area with great grape growing potential, why not take advantage of this and start making my own wine? My father and I had been making small batches as in 20 gallons a year in carboys. However, to acquire the quality of grape I was looking for from vineyard farmer’s such as Paul Champoux and Paul Portteus I had to buy at minimum 1,000 pounds, in order to store this I needed to buy a barrel. And so, 17 years later I have just released my 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The 2005 wines are ready to be released as well and I have added a Sangiovese.
Currently, I have 30 barrels, still a very small winery, but this allows me to tend to each variety therefore creating a very specialized wine. All this happens from our home on top of Queen Anne hill in Seattle Washington.
Making wine has been a learning and humbling experience, but to be creating and drinking a quality and outstanding wine that has been made by my own hand has been incredible.
