Good times are meant to Be shared, so are great grapes and great wines.

It has been said that wine reflects its environment.

Elsom Cellars’ wines are filled with the clatter of artisans working hard at their craft, sharing stories, friends laughing, and eventually it, all ends up in the bottle. Owner Jody Elsom is a pioneer in the Seattle urban winery movement. Since 2006 we have been producing brilliant Washington wines in the city, exploring the complexities found only in vineyards east of the cascades.  Our wines offer distinctive flavors, born of a singular desire to create the quintessential gesture of hospitality. 

 

Current Release

 

2019 Grenache

Upland Vineyard has done it again, growing a beautiful batch of Grenache that we couldnʼt wait to put in bottle. A glass of this ruby-red wine with heavy minerality notes and fresh berries would pair perfectly with any herb-heavy dish. The tannins are well-integrated, with an intriguing light oak influence. You may even taste flickers of cranberry tea and white pepper as you sip.

2017 Syrah

Our 2017 Syrah vintage is the hue of a romantic, plum-colored night sky. Try pairing with a bacon-wrapped date to complement the smoky nose. You wonʼt get enough of this wine during the holidays. You can almost taste the nuts roasting over the fire as you sip. There is a beautiful, layered, earthiness to this wine that canʼt be beat.

2017 Mourvèdre

The highly anticipated return of the M in GSM has finally arrived, and it does not disappoint! Notice the beautiful rich color and prepare yourself for a classic peppery glass of Horse Heaven Hills Mourvèdre. There are notes of coffee, gingerbread, and wet volcanic slate owed in large part to the incredible soils of Washington state. Unlike many of our wines, this glass starts slow and then kicks it up a notch with hints of pomegranate and green apple.

How can great wine be even better?

A good food pairing of course!

The Women Behind the Wine

JODY ELSOM | Owner

Jody is a travelling spirit. If you ask her what inspires her, you get a million glimpses of the world she’s seen. This old world teaches us a lot if we slow down and let it. And, if we sit across a table from a stranger with a couple glasses of great wine, before long, it’s surprising how much we all share. Wine gathers its taste from everything it encounters. The earth. The air. Everything leaves a mark. So do people. Jody’s passion for wine began in the Napa Valley and further explored through numerous experiences in the vineyards and wineries throughout Italy and France. Formally educated as one of the first graduates from WSU’s extension studies of Enology. Jody has a passion for developing wines that best represent the possibilities for Washington Wines.

REBECCA WEBER | Winemaker

Rebecca joined Elsom back in 2014 bringing both her passion for wine and background in science to the wines at Elsom Cellars. Rebecca found herself drawn to the wine industry after earning her Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. She first discovered her desire to start winemaking while working a harvest in Bordeaux, France. Rebecca has since travelled and worked all over the world including wine regions in Australia, Austria, and California’s Napa Valley and Sonoma County. She spent several years at the Betz Family Winery where she had the chance to learn from Washington wine pioneer and Master of Wine, Bob Betz, before finding her home at Elsom Cellars. When Rebecca isn’t delving into chemistry or tending to barrels in the warehouse, you can find her volunteering at the Pacific Science Center, playing with her pup, or on the soccer field. 

How it’s Made

We classify our artisan wines as Seattle-Made and Washington-Grown. Made with carefully selected and hand-nurtured grapes from Eastern Washington, our long-standing history as winemakers allows us to work with growers that have proven consistency and take great pride in tending the land.
