Our Story

Heymann Winery started in our garage in Chehalis with our wines available from our retail store, Heymann Whinery Etc., in Centralia. The end of May 2009 we moved our retail store to a larger location in downtown Centralia that has 2 store fronts. The second storefront is in the process of becoming our winery. We hope to have the move completed by August 2009 and will be producing the majority of our wines in downtown Centralia.

Heymann Whinery evolved from a home winemaking hobby to a dream to open a home winemaking supply store, a pending retirement, and then deciding to sell our own wines ? thus Heymann Whinery started production in June 2004 with our flagship Cranberry wine that has proven to be very popular with both wine and non-wine drinkers. The fruit wine collection, along with Cranberry, includes Blackberry, Raspberry and Apricot. All our fruit comes from Washington ? Grayland, Burlington, and Yakima. We also took a step out of the ordinary and blended fruit wine with grape wine with the result of a Raspberry Chardonnay and a Cranberry Cuvee (Cranberry blended with Chardonnay). If you are curious of why the Cranberry Cuvee doesn't carry the Chardonnay name, stop by the store and we'll tell you.

The grape collection includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. All the grapes are from Prosser in the lower Yakima Valley produced in both the Yakima and Red Mountain appellations. Being a small winery with total production less than 800 cases a year at this time gives us flexibility to produce small batches of several different varieties.

Yes, the ?h? is meant to be in ?whinery? on our label. Started as a joke, but has become our signature.

The Heymann Whinery Etc. tasting room/gift shop features wine related gifts as well as a chance to taste the wines ? and to visit Historic Downtown Centralia and the many antique shops.
