Heymann Whinery closed the downtown Centralia retail store and moved our wine and wine tasting back to the winery at our home in Chehalis. We are operating as a winery with wine tasting that includes an inside bar when it's cold and damp, and an outside bar with a casual courtyard with covered seating for when the weather is sunny and warm. We still have our 16+ wines with, fruit wines and grape wines that include the traditional varietals of Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon,
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.
