This is our wine making philosophy - the same today as when we started in 1997. Â We founded Hightower Cellars in Woodinville in 1997, with our primary grape supply coming from Red Mountain. Â We are co-winemakers and husband and wife that handcraft highly acclaimed, food friendly, red wines of elegance, depth and complexity.
We adopted this philosophy after working alongside Master of Wine, David Lake, of Columbia Winery; and after a series of mid-1997 conversations and tastings with Chris Camarda of Andrew Will Winery, with Gary Figgins of Leonetti Cellars, and with Alex Golitzen of Quiliceda Creek Winery.
Our search for the best grapes led us to Red Mountain. Â Before starting Hightower Cellars, when we came across a Washington wine we loved - a wine with great depth and complexity of flavors, balanced tannin structure and enchanting aromatics - we would ask where the grapes were grown and the answer was always Red Mountain. Â So, we said to ourselves since we want to start a world class winery in Washington State we must have Red Mountain grapes.
