At Cougar Creek Wine, we specialize in homemade fruit and grape wines. These wines from our small boutique winery are fun and unique and are table wines that are mostly dry to barely sweet with a sweetness scale on the label to rate the residual sugar level.

3 silver medals for the 2008 BTI World Wine Championships in Chicago to the Tempranillo, Sangiovese, and Blackberry wines!

The Interlaken Grape wine won 2004 "Best of Show" out of 49 entries at the Washington Evergreen State Fair. These grapes do well in our Northwest climate and are organically, estate grown in Fall City, Washington.

Our wines are always gift wrapped, and are available in the Washington State wine and liquor stores.

So many people ask us how we got started
So I'll tell you the story of we met wine and never parted.

We tried some homemade wine made by John's California vintner brother.
It was so good we were inspired tomake our own, it was like no other.

When life gives you blackberries you make blackberry wine
and we were off and running making lots of fruits divine.

Our Interlaken grape vines produced like they were crazed
we entered their wine in the fair won Best of Show, we were amazed!

We are always trying new things perfecting the old tried and trues.
There's so many different kinds now pear to blacks and blues.

We went back to school studied enology, science of wine Learning is always good to help us grow and refine.
