To make their award-winning, handcrafted wines, Amy and Josh Stottlemyer source their grapes from the local eastern Washington fields in the Horse Heaven Hills, Yakima Valley, and Columbia Valley. From that harvest, they craft thirteen wines, ranging from classics such as cabernet sauvignon and malbec to less-common flavors such as barbera and viognier. At tasting rooms in Lacey, West Seattle, and Hoodsport, they raise spirits at public tastings held three to five times a week. Stottle Winery also breaks into the darkest corner of the cellar during tastings of limited and reserved wines held on the first weekend of each month, and welcomes groups for by-appointment private tastings with cheese and crackers for up to 20 guests. Revelry continues at the winery’s other private events, where up to 60 guests can mingle over munchies, hum along to live music, and aggressively sniff sommeliers to teach them what it feels like to be wine.
