Hello! My name is Dawne Swanson and I started making wine in about 2003. First a kit, then grape juice, then grapes, and before I knew it I was making a lot of wine! As I got better at this hobby, people started asking to buy my wine. In 2015, my hobby became a business, and Moose Canyon Winery became the 889th licensed winery in Washington state. Grapes that arrived in 2015 were made into wines for sale in 2016 (white and rose) and 2017 (red). The first commercial wines were released on June 18, 2016 and sold out quickly. We have white (Pinot Grigio) and rose (Cabernet Franc) wines for sale now, and in the Fall will release three reds (Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Meritage blend). In the meantime, feel free to contact us. We can do tasting by appointment, and if you time it right you can barrel taste too. Of course, you can also come to the winery to help crush, press and bottle wine, so just sign up and I’ll let you know what’s going on. Disclaimer: There are no moose native to this part of Washington and no moose were harmed it the making of any wine. Cheers!
