Come Visit Us

 


Got Mead? We are an award-winning family owned and operated Meadery conveniently located in Tukwila WA near the I405 and I5 interchange just south of Seattle. We hand-craft small batches of premium honey wine (mead) in many different flavors. We aim to have something for everyone. We have meads featuring sweetness levels ranging from dry to dessert wine. Our meadery has tasting flights ($10 per person, refundable with bottle purchase) and glass pours, and of course we encourage adopting bottles of your favorites for later.  We also have a mead subscription club where members get first access to new flavors and a 20% discount on all bottles! If you have never tried mead before you owe it to yourself to come visit us!


Small batch premium wine outside of Woodinville? Yes it’s possible! We specialize in red wine, but of course we make white wine too. We are located only a couple blocks from Total Wine in Tukwila, near Southcenter mall. With everything from barrel-aged reds to stainless fermented white wines, we love them all and think you will too. We are also known to put wine & mead into bourbon barrels for aging, with incredible results.
