We are excited to announce that our featured winery of the month for June 2017 is Powers winery! All month at our downtown Spokane location you can taste (and buy) 6 Powers wines.
In 1982 Bill Powers planted grapes on the South slope of Badger Mountain. With a passion for agriculture and sustainability Mr. Powers moved toward organic growing practices and in 1990 became the first winery in the state to be certified organic. Bill Powers impact on the Washington Wine industry was substantial. Powers was recognized for his impact in 2010, when he was inducted into the Walter Clore Wine and Culinary Center’s Legends of Washington Wine Hall of Fame.
“I am the luckiest guy in the world because I get up, walk out the door and get to do what I love everyday.” – Bill Powers 2010
Bill passed on in 2014 but his legacy continues with his son Greg Powers and Winemaker Jose Mendoza continuing the tradition of quality wine. Today, Greg carries on the family traditions of sustainable farming and the passionate production of exceptional wines. Under Greg’s leadership, Powers Winery has been recognized as a “rising star” by Wine Spectator, and as one of the “50 Great U.S. Cabernet Producers” by Wine Enthusiast.
In 1996 the Powers’ family, along with four other wineries and a partnership with Paul Champoux purchased Mercer Ranch Vineyard and formed Champoux Vineyards. Under the management of Paul Champoux, the estate has become one of Washington’s premiere vineyards, boasting some of the state’s oldest root stock, planted in 1972. Champoux Vineyards forms the core of Powers’ Cabernet Sauvignon program.
What strikes us is the incredible value and quality across the line up. Only one of the Powers wines is over $20. We have lowered our tasting fee during the month of June to just $5 (refunded with a bottle purchase). Our wine club members can taste free all month long.
