Van Camp Cellars
We are located in Snohomish, on the westside of the Cascade mountains. Just down the hill from Woodinville, the wine capitol of Western Washington.
I have been in the restaurant industry all my adult life and was taught about wine from some of the really great restaurants and their owners such as, Rosellini's, Dominic's, The Mirabeau, David's on Sixth and the Metropolitan Grill. All were excellent teachers and taught me a real love for wine that inspired me to learn all that I could.
With that inspiration I started to get very curious about the making process and played around with making wine with kits. When Friends told me that they enjoyed the wines it inspired me to go a step further and learn how the big boys do it.
Each year we keep learning to make our wines better with natures help and the experience each new vintage brings. Every year the grapes create new flavors, textures and aromas with mother natures help.
With that help and the help of my friend Bruce Watson who is an incredibly accomplished wine chemist and winemaker we are sure to grow to reach a broader audience with excellent quality wines that are made with Washington's finest grapes. With the quality grapes of Portteus Vineyard and Red Willow Vineyards we know that it won't be hard to do.
I truly love and enjoy the entire process of making and releasing these wines for your enjoyment.
