Preston Premium Wines

Preston Premium Wines Preston Premium Wines has been a family-owned and operated winery since it’s beginning in the 1970’s. S.W. (Bill) and Joann Preston turned their hobby of enjoying fine wines into a family business that has been passed down to their children and recently grandchildren. Bill and Joann are known as pioneers in the Washington wine industry when they planted their then 50-acre vineyard in 1972-73. It was increased to 180 acres in 1979. Preston Vineyards is comprised of several European vinifera such as sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, gewürztraminer, white riesling, gamay noir, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, and syrah. The vineyard site, in Eastern Washington, is an ideal area to grow grapes with its long hot summer days, cool evenings, and access to an irrigation system fueled by the Columbia River. In 1976, the reality of having a winery facility came to fruition. Preston Wine Cellars, as it was first known, was the third licensed winery in Washington State. As the winery evolved, by changing its name to Preston Premium Wines in 1991, so did the state’s wine industry. Currently, there are 275 + wineries in Washington State. Washington is second only in wine production to California in the United States. Its wines are recognized for their quality around the world. The Preston family and staff invites visitors to stop by their distinctive grounds in which visitors are able to tour the winery, view the vineyards while tasting extraordinary wines, or perhaps picnicking or strolling through the picturesque park. These facilities are also available to rent. The beautifully manicured park, which hosts a gazebo, pond, amphitheater and waterfall provides the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding and/or reception. For smaller gatherings, the tasting room and deck are another alternative for an outdoor event. Enjoying spectacular summer sunsets from this view is truly a moment to remember. In cooler months, the winery can accommodate up to 100 people inside, depending on the event. We have another extraordinary setting which is our barrel room. This area provides a warm atmosphere as you host your event while being surrounded by towers of wine barrels.

A gentle crushing and holding of the juice and skins together allows for the beautiful color without loss of the delicate grape aroma and flavor.

The climate is slightly warmer and the elevation higher than the Preston vineyards.The Syrah is a deep, dark purple and jammy on the palate. It's the kind of wine that is helping make a name for Washington state as the top syrah region in the country.

Marvel at the deep dark purple color of this wine. A tip of the glass yields spicy blackberry flavors with a rich, jammy finish on the palate.

The unfermented grape sugar remains in the wine, making it sweet. The amount of sweetness varies with winemaker and winery. Port may be served at the end of a meal with dessert or with a cheese course. Cheeses such as Stilton, Huntsman and cheddar complement port.
  White Riesling
A mouthful of fruit with the characteristic Riesling varietal flavors describes this wine. Peaches dominate with apricot, floral, and Riesling mid-ranges that slide into a soft, flowing finish.
