In 2008 we set out to start a winery with a specific vision: to embody the soul of wine from vineyard to bottle to table. Our philosophy is that wine should be accessible, approachable, and affordable. But most of all, we believe a wine’s purpose is to bring together family and friends!
With 10 years of viticulture and winemaking experience in Washington State, we know a thing or two about making wine. For starters, Purple Star’s varietal blends are grown from some of Washington State’s finest appellations including Wahluke Slope, Yakima Valley, and Red Mountain. With grapes handpicked at their optimal flavor profile and the juice fermented at cooler temperatures for longer periods, our wines exhibit softer tannins and retain more varietal character.
As a family we find ourselves blessed with good health. Our good fortune, however, comes with a realization that others are less fortunate. As a result we have chosen to donate 15% of Purple Star Wines’ proceeds to Seattle Children’s Hospital to benefit uncompensated care—a gesture we hope will lighten the financial burden of families overwhelmed by the expenses associated with critical medical care. It’s our way of “paying it forward.”
