Thoughtful plans about the future aren't generally on one's mind while drinking, but winemaker Brad Sherman broke the mold one evening. While sipping wine, he saw his career path blaze brilliantly before him, and he suddenly knew he wanted to become a winemaker. After volunteering at wineries in Seattle and Woodinville, he joined the Boeing Wine and Beer Makers Club, where he honed his craft in 2000. He then collaborated with other wine makers and earned his distributors license, and in 2009, he moved his already burgeoning winery into the Wine Warehouse District of Woodinville.
Today, he produces small-batch wines, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, syrah, monastrell, sauvignon blanc, and grenache blends, many of which have won awards, including the 2010 primitivo, which boasts a balance of ripe fruit and blackberries with hints of spice and tobacco. In his spacious tasting room, he invites visitors to learn more about his wines while sipping a variety of his most recent favorites.
