Tefft Cellars: Guess Who’s Coming to Town?

by Shona Milne on June 5, 2009

tefftI heard that Tefft Cellars was opening a tasting room in Woodinville soon. I received an email from the owners, Rhonda & Matt Taylor and Paul & Krisit Tollner, and they expect to open up July 1st.

Bringing our wonderful wines to Woodinville has been a dream for Tefft Cellars ever since Joel Tefft first began the winery back in 1991. For almost 20 years our loyal fans in Western Washington have made the trek to our Tasting Room just outside of Yakima, and they are extremely excited that our wines will now be available in their backyard.

Just to give you a little background on Tefft, our vineyard and cellars are located in the little town of Outlook in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA. Earlier this year, two local Tefft-wine-loving-families purchased the winery from Joel, and we couldn’t be more excited about carrying on his tradition of creating fine wines that are priced to be accessible by a wide audience. Our vineyard produces incredible estate vintages from our mature Nebbiolo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah and Chenin Blanc vines. But we don’t stop there! Our winemakers Joel and Marty also make several award winning wines and ports from Cab Franc, Zinfandel, Merlot, Muscat and Dolcetto fruit grown by our neighbors in Rattlesnake Hills (…in fact, our Dolceto Rose’ just won the “People’s Choice Award” at this week’s ‘Rose’ Revival’ in Seattle!).
