Cairdeas (Car-dess) is an ancient Gaelic word meaning friendship, goodwill or alliance. We believe in all three. Good wine should be shared with friends, goodwill spread at every opportunity, and alliances created with those who share our passion.
Cairdeas Winery is a very small artisan winery started in 2009 by Charlie & Lacey Lybecker. Our focus is to create small lots of fantastic wines made from Washington’s best fruit while practicing sustainable wine making and supporting our local businesses.
A lot of people ask how to pronounce ‘Cairdeas’ or how it is spelled phonetically. The simple answer is that there isn’t one! With the Gaelic language the pronunciation or phonetic spelling varies based on the dialect of the person saying it. Some of the variations we have found are: korr-djass, KAR-juss, and cargis. We pronounce it as Car-dess. The word holds a special meaning to us based on Charlie’s Irish heritage, Lacey’s goodwill (that is how we met), the alliance we have made with each other, and the friendships we have made along the way.
