It all started with a question.....
"How is it that two wines made from exactly the same grapes can taste completely different?"
Chasing the answer to that question transformed biomedical engineer Rob Entrekin from a wine drinker into a winemaker.
Rob enrolled in the Washington State University enology certificate program in 2007. Inspired by his fellow classmates, many of whom were already professional winemakers, Finn Hill Winery was licensed and bonded in Rob's two-car garage on Finn Hill in September 2008. Annual production started at 150 cases, but after a few years, space constraints dictated a move to the warehouse district where annual production today is less than 1,000 cases -- still at the "micro-winery" level.
This small scale allows Rob to pay tremendous attention to every detail of the wine making process, and to use the best grapes and the finest French oak barrels available. This results in wines with elegance and power, which reflect the vineyard's distinct terroir or "sense of place".
Rob's goal is to handcraft small lots of premium Washington wine that he thinks taste fantastic. He hopes you will think they taste fantastic, too.
