Our Story

Established in 1993, Matthews Estate winery is home to our production facility and tasting room and to the “Estate House”, our event center and Bed and Breakfast. We are located on a private eight acre estate in Woodinville, Washington, just twenty minutes northeast of the city of Seattle, and in the middle of Woodinville Wine Country and home to over 40 other wineries. Our winery is focused on maintaining production of mainly Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux style varietals, but also Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Cabernet Franc wines using grapes grown in Washington State. Winemaker, Aryn Morell, sources fruit from the most reputable vineyards in the Yakima and Columbia Valley, from winegrowers with experience in growing and harvesting grapes and respect for nature and soil. The winery believes that there is a deep and tangible link between the vines, hills, winegrowers and winemakers, and carries this proof of affinity into every aspect of winemaking: from the vineyard to the cellar, from the vine to the wine bottle.

The many and continuous accolades we receive from the public and wine world alike are an undeniable proof and future motivation to us: 2003 Conner Lee Cab Franc (96 pts. R. Parker Wine Advocate), 2007 Stillwater Sauvignon Blanc (91 pts R. Parker), 91 pts Wine Enthusiast and 90 pts Wine Spectator, 2008 Stillwater Creek Sauvignon Blanc 90 pts Wine Spectator and tying for the highest rated Sauvignon Blanc in Washington State, 2002 Red Wine (94 pts Wine Enthusiast and one of top 100 hundred wines of the year), 2000 Red Wine (91 pts Wine Spectator), 2001 Red Wine (90 pts Wine Spectator) and 2004 Claret (91 pts Wine Enthusiast/ top 45 best Cabernet blends), 2006 Claret (91 pts Wine Spectator), 2007 Syrah (94pts Wine Spectator).
