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.

The Women Behind the Wine


Jody is a traveling 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 joined Elsom Cellars 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 traveled 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.
