Head oenophile Ray Curtis uncorks 30 years of wine knowledge during quaffing sessions inside Northwest Mountain Winery's cozy tasting room. While reclining in repurposed wine-barrel chairs and clinking glasses with up to 19 companions, attendees sip on 10–12 1-ounce samples from the wine list betwixt nibbles of the provided cheese and sour straws. Libations for consideration include the 2009 Columbia Valley syrah, positing its flavor bouquet of dark cherries, cola, and smoked cedar to studious taste buds, and the Mountain Majesty, a medium-bodied blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and zinfandel. The Firebreathing mead earned a bronze medal at the Seattle Wine Awards for its surprising hints of honey and jalapeño, which delightfully complement spicy Thai dishes or bees with a taco craving.

Northwest Mountain Winery

While other teenagers were trying to steal sips from their dad’s vintage wines, Ray Curtis was dreaming of making his own. Ray’s career began at Shawnee Vineyards, where he was a jack-of-all-trades, bottling, labeling, and racking the central Ohio winery’s signature varietals. After moving to the Northwest 10 years ago Ray opened Olympia’s Northwest Mountain Winery, which lies along the idyllic South Sound Wine Trail and specializes in handcrafted wines of his own invention. Patrons populating the tasting room can enjoy such creations as the 2009 Columbia Valley syrah, which posits its flavor bouquet of dark cherries, cola, and smoked cedar to studious taste buds, or the Mountain Majesty, a medium-bodied blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and zinfandel. The Firebreathing mead earned a bronze medal at the Seattle Wine Awards for its surprising hints of honey and jalapeño, which delightfully complement spicy Thai dishes or bees with a taco craving.

It's in an industrial type building which is a bit odd, but the inside is the setting of a laid-back wine tasting room with plenty of space. We had a great time and will for certain return! :)
