Tamarack Cellars

Ron Coleman has worked with wine in every way possible. He started out as a wholesaler, worked as a sommelier, managed a retail store, then finally got the chance to really dig into his favorite subject: He became a winemaker.

He worked in several other winemakers' cellars before founding Tamarack Cellars in 1998 to make wines that are delicious and fairly priced. The winery is located in an old World War II fire station on a former air force base – cool, right? Today, they consistently earn rave reviews and 90+ ratings, and their wines have remained impressively affordable.

There aren’t any sweeping vineyard views here. The one thing Coleman and his team don’t do is grow grapes – instead, they purchase grapes from the best vineyards in the Walla Walla, Washington, region. They do everything else from crushing the grapes to fermenting, blending and aging, making each wine “barrel by barrel.”
