MikeL's Guide to WA Wineries
Operating Washington State wineries

  • In a recent (Nov-2006) class presentation for the WSU online Viticulture certificate, Ray Folwell of WSU IAREC stated roughly:
    "I recall in 1976, Washington State had 6 wineries".
  • Operating WA Winery list - 1981
  • Time magazine, in an article Washington's Bright New Wine on 27-Jun-1983 states:
    "There are now 31 wineries in Washington, twice as many as in 1980".
  • Operating WA Winery list - 1984
  • In an article by Ken Robertson at winepressnw.com, he notes a clipping in his collection of a Seattle Times Tom Stockley column dated 28-Jun-1989 that notes "more than 150 wineries in the Pacific Northwest". Caution, this may include OR and ID.

    Note that the Seattle Times does not have articles back this far on their website at this time.
