Thank you for visiting Harbinger Winery, where our mission in this life is to create ultra premium and incredibly drinkable wines from Washington State. The point is to get you, the customer, to feel the void left in your cellar when all of the Harbinger Wines have been gleefully consumed!

We go about doing this by purchasing the most intense and flavorful of grapes, then treating them like royalty from start to finish. Once selected, all of our fruit is then hand-picked and then crushed within hours of harvest. During fermentation, the caps are manually punched down several times a day.

While very labor intensive, we at Harbinger firmly believe that by utilizing a hands on approach we are able to attain a much more individualized and expressive wine. With our reds we use no filtration or fining methods with the intention of leaving as much of the wines true character where it belongs: in the bottle.

There is a saying in the wine industry (actually, there are many) that goes something like this: "One cannot make great wine from bad grapes, although one can make bad wine from great grapes." The moral of the story being: One needs great grapes to make great wine.
We get our grapes from several different sources. Doing so allows us to produce wines of different character and terroir, thus giving us a much more structured and layered wine upon completion.
