Birth of a Washington Winery

Welcome to Cedar River Cellars, one of Washington's newest wineries. Information, news, and updates can be viewed here at and as well on

2009 will be our first crush, so it will be some time before our product is to market. However, we invite you to follow our adventures so that you may be better prepared to enjoy our Northwest style wine when it is released.

About Cedar River Cellars and our mission statement:

Cedar River Cellars is a nano-winery dedicated to producing Northwest style wine, using Washington vinifera, local Northwest vendors, and supporting our local economy.

Our mission is to produce high quality, hand-crafted, sensorially pleasing wines from Washington state vinifera. Using quality winemaking techniques and good manufacturing practices, our philosophy is for the wine to naturally settle, thus reducing the need of excessive clarifying additives, filtering, and keeping sulphite levels low.
