Cedar Ridge Winery

After 5 years of individual effort, Cedar Ridge Winery was born in 1994 as a trio of amateur winemakers in the Boeing Wine Club. In 2004, the winery grew into a one-man commercial operation located in the basement of my Snohomish home.

Our Story

LISTENING TO THE GRAPES

At Cedar Ridge, winemaking is a minimalist proposition. I listen to the grapes and help them become the wine they want to be: sulfites are used but only in small amounts. Purchased directly from the growers, the crushed grapes are allowed to cold soak prior to fermentation and oak aging at the winery; the finished wine is bottled when needed, typically 2 to 3 years later. This process results in a full bodied wine with great texture and mouth feel – ready to drink now or lay down for a few years.
