The story of family-owned and operated winery, Northwest Cellars, began nearly 12 years ago, when Bob Delf received a custom-labeled bottle of wine that was so repugnant he poured it straight down the drain. This was troubling, especially given Bob's experiences growing up in a family of wine importers and distributors. Determined to raise the bar, Bob founded Northwest Cellars, where today he creates award-winning wines with grapes grown at vineyards across Washington state.
But his commitment to local libations doesn't stop at his own—Bob partners with fellow Washington wineries Skylite Cellars and Waving Tree Winery to create all-star tastings. At Waving Tree Winery, the 34-acres of vineyards in Maryhill, WA., yield an array of velvety vinos, including renowned Italian and Rhone dry red varietals, two stunning sweet wines, and two dessert wines. At Skylite Cellars boutique winery in the Walla Walla Valley, a mother-daughter team of wine enthusiasts produce less than 1,500 cases of elixir per year before revealing their charms at their three tasting rooms in Spokane, Kirkland, and Walla Walla.
