Your neighborhood winery

Cedar River Cellars is an award winning winery with a sense of place. We chose our winery name due to our proximity to the river in Renton, WA. We wanted to have a name that is recognizable by people local to our community.

We chose Cedar River Cellars for our winery name due to our winery proximity to the river in Renton, WA. We wanted to have a name that is recognizable by people who live or grew up near by, floated down in the Summer, or fished the Cedar River. Here in the Puget Sound region we get our drinking water from the Cedar River Watershed. It has beneficial and ecological significances with regards to its salmon fisheries as well.

To fully experience Northwest-style wines, we invite you to encounter them in a tranquil and natural environment, among old-growth cedars at our charming, intimate park-like tasting venue.

A rejuvenating retreat is just a bottle-opener and a few minutes away from Sea-Tac airport or downtown Seattle. Come and picnic with the whole family, enjoy a tasting, and get the complete hometown winery experience.

Classically Trained

Our winemaker, Micah Nasarow, has a B.S. in Food Science and Technology - Oregon State University '95

We Love Fermentation
