Description

Founded in 1998 by Ron and Jamie Coleman, Tamarack’s first vintage consisted of 300 cases of Merlot. The goal was to make elegant, balanced, delicious wines and offer them at a fair price. Years later, and now up to 20,000 cases each year, the focus remains the same. Tamarack Cellars hand-crafts consistently outstanding wines for a great price.

It’s not about romance…

It’s about a passion for excellence.  We buy grapes from the most renowned vineyards in Washington State and create our wines barrel by barrel. Whether it’s our widely distributed Firehouse Red or one of the limited-production single vineyard reserve blends, Tamarack’s wines offer a delicious expression of Washington vineyards’ style and elegance in every bottle.
