Spotlight Winery

Amocat Cellars

Amocat Cellars grew out of an obsession to create a wine made in Tacoma from the best Washington grapes. Unlike other wine makers, I use no coloring agents, flavor enhancers, or additives. Just the grapes… and maybe a touch of oak.

The 2007 vintage marks the first year of production. The theme of this batch is experimentation and red blends. Samples from this effort should be available by late 2008.


Keep up-to-date with the FWWS blog! We strive to post current information and news that our members and the general public can use to stay educated on Washington wine issues. Feel free to post comments and link to the RSS feed. Enjoy!

Sponsor Highlight

Our organization is fortunate to enjoy support from a variety of great industry members. We encourage our members and web site visitors to give these sponsor their business.

CorkWest is the Pacific Northwest's only cork closure manufacturer. Located in the Port of Kennewick, we operate in a spacious facility with state-of-the-art cork treatment machinery. We receive select, hand-sorted cork from a single supply source. Corks are steam cleaned and peroxide washed, and then the peroxide is eliminated with a bisulphate treatment. Each small bale is rigorously tested, and data are provided for each individual bale being considered for your purchase.

We offer premium products at competitive prices. CorkWest can offer rapid turnaround times, free branding with no setup cost to the customer, and regional proximity.
