Fjellene Cellars is dedicated to crafting distinct, varietal-specific wines from Washington State with sustainability in mind. It is our mission to create elegant, approachable, food-friendly wines while delivering back to the earth. Pumice and stems are reduced to compost by local farmers; our lees are recycled into secondary, useable products; local craftsmen transform barrels over six-years-old into works of art; and natural cork closures are used on all our wines. We are continuing our efforts by actively researching ways to incorporate local, post-consumer glass into our packaging.
We are a family-owned, family-operated winery that specializes in small, vineyard-designate lots. This allows us to concentrate on quality, terroir, and varietal.
Thank you for drinking Fjellene wines. Skål
What does it mean to us to be sustainable in the wine industry? It seems that this phrase is over used and often undefined. Although we are not claiming to be sustainable at this time, we are making every effort to minimize our waste while renewing our resources to lessen our impact on the planet. We believe that sustainability is not something you achieve, but rather a mindset that requires time and long-term goals.
We are dedicated to working with suppliers that share our passion. Below you will find a list of our suppliers. Please visit the included links to see how they are adapting their business practices towards sustainability.
