Why Choose Us?

Port Townsend has a long maritime heritage, and our former careers were involved with the sea where the phrase, "Fair winds and following seas..." is a special salute to a fellow mariner. Our label recalls those days when "fair winds" brought exotic cargoes from around the world. We wish you "fair winds and following seas" and believe the ship on this bottle will bring you a refreshing experience from the wonderful world of wine flavors! FairWinds Winery always partners with some of the best growers in the Yakima Valley to provide top quality fruit which is hand picked, transported to the winery, fermented in small, highly monitored lots and made into FairWinds award winning wines. We predominately use American oak but sometimes a blend of American, French and Hungarian will be what works best .Our reds are bottled without filtration and both reds and whites are given just the minimum amount of sulfites to ensure freshness and longevity. Our average production is around 1,000 cases per year and our wines are available at the winery, a few local outlets, on-line and through our wine club.

“The best wines for the price, hands down. FairWinds beats the rest with their willingness to step out and make wines that other wineries haven't even heard of, including an amazing Gewürztraminer, delicious Aligoté, and the best Lemberger in the northwest. Thanks FW!”

“Absolutely the best wine, dedicated owners/wine makers and the best Olympic Peninsula wine events participants.”

“Great winery with the nicest winemakers. They always outdo all of the other Peninsula wineries during events. Every wine they make is delicious and easy to drink.”

“Love their wines and the people who run it are great!”
