Founded in 1962 by ten friends, six of whom were University of Washington professors, Columbia Winery is Washington state? first premium winery.  Originally known as Associated Vintners, the group was united in the belief that classic European vinifera vines could survive the harsh Washington winters and that fine wine could be made in Washington state.  They began by making wines in the garage of Dr. Lloyd Woodburne, Columbia? first winemaker, in the Seattle neighborhood of Laurelhurst.

The results far exceeded their expectations.  "Those first years of the 1960s are the turning point in modern wine history" writes Hugh Johnson, one of the world? most widely read and respected wine authorities.  In his book ?intage,?he pays tribute to the Associated Vintners and the industry they helped build in the Northwest, at precisely the same time that California and Australia were awakening to the possibility of making high quality wine.

Columbia Winery has grown steadily over the past forty years as a leader in Washington? burgeoning wine industry.  The winery? production in 2000 reached 140,000 cases and its distribution now includes exports to Canada, Europe and the Pacific Rim.

David Lake, Master of Wine, joined Columbia Winery in 1979 as winemaker and has continued the pioneering spirit of Columbia Winery? founders.  David is most renowned for his experimentation with new varietals and for producing the series of first vineyard-designated wines in Washington state.  He was the first winemaker to produce several varietals in Washington state, including Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Gris.  Today, David continues to experiment with new varietals and in new directions.  He is committed to creating the highest quality wines possible.

Columbia Winery has a reputation for producing award-winning wines of outstanding quality and boasts a wine selection second to none.  In addition to crafting excellent red wines such as Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia offers distinctive dry white wines such as Chardonnay, Semillon and Pinot Gris as well as exceptional Riesling and Gew?ztraminer.  Columbia Winery also offers a David Lake signature series of fine wines including Cabernet Sauvignons from long-established vineyards such as Otis, Sagemoor and the renowned Red Willow vineyard.  Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sangiovese and the state? first Syrah are also part of this signature series.

Columbia Winery? vineyards lie on the same latitudes as premium wine producing areas of France, yet the winery aims to produce distinctive Washington wines.  The winery uses only European vinifera grapes grown in the Columbia and Yakima Valley regions of eastern Washington.  The area? long, hot, sunny days and cool, clear nights allow the vineyards to produce grapes full of complex flavors and aromas.
