2023 Winemaking & Bottling News:
We are busy with our Winemaking & Bottling activities and it looks like everything coming in 2023 will be OUTSTANDING. In March, we will bottle our 2022 Albariño and a NEW 2022 Rosé along with some Limited Barrel Select Reds. In April we will bottle the remainder of the Reds, Blends, and Bubbles.
Our NEW Vibe Cellars 2022 Rosé is a beautiful Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon dominant Rosé with loads of strawberry, hints of citrus, lively acidity, and a great finish. We will introduce our NEW 2021 Vibe Cellars Barrel Select Merlot from Candy Mountain Vineyard (Candy Mt. AVA) and will be bringing back a very limited quantity of 2021 Vibe Cellars Barrel Select Sangiovese. To cap it off … we will be bottling a NEW WAVE (our WAshington Vineyard Experience label) Right-Minded Blend that is a Merlot dominant “Right Bank” style Bordeaux Blend.

Vibe Cellars WINTER 2022 Newsletter
2022 Harvest News:
We are just finishing up our 2022 Harvest & Winemaking activities and it looks like 2022 Vintages will be OUTSTANDING. The late Spring this year was a concern about the overall quality and ripeness that might be achieved. But, with the Vineyards we source our fruit from, it turned out to be a GREAT year with hot/warm weather carrying into early November.
The Syrah we source from Stillwater Creek Vineyard (Royal Slope AVA) has consistently been outstanding fruit. We are super excited about this amazing Vineyard and cannot wait to share our 2021 Syrah with the Wine Club next year.
We source our Sangiovese from Chandlers Reach Vineyards (CRV). 2022 will be our fifth vintage from this amazing Vineyard. We are excited to announce we increased our tonnage from CRV and will be able to bring back our single varietal Sangiovese as well as our wonderful Gemelli Super Tuscan Blend in the coming years.
NEW Vineyards Added for 2022:
We are proud to announce adding 2 NEW Vineyards to our 2022 Varietal Harvest plans. We added multi-award-winning Alexandria Nicole’s – Destiny Ridge Vineyard (Horse Heaven Hills AVA) as our 2022 source for Cabernet Sauvignon. Sourcing from Destiny Ridge is a long haul but well worth the trip. We are excited to have HHH AVA fruit again and expect a refined tannin structured Cabernet Sauvignon that will also enhance our Gemelli Super Tuscan Blend.
We also added StoneTree - James Vineyard (Wahluke Slope AVA) as our 2022 source for both Malbec and Cabernet Franc (CF). We are thrilled to gain access to this prestigious Vineyard. The color on both is exciting and the flavors & aromatics are really coming together.

In 2020, we added a new Varietal … Malbec, etc.
We continue to build out our varietal selections by adding a Malbec and will continue to find wonderful new Washington sources in the future. We secured a long-term relationship with Stillwater Creek Vineyard (in the NEW Royal Slope AVA) for our Syrah and we are working with Stone Tree Vineyard (Wahluke Slope AVA) as a source for other varietals. We are building relationships with other Chelan Wineries as well to enhance production and broaden our offerings.
Continuing our search for a Tasting Room option.
We continue to search for a good Tasting Room Location. Unfortunately, the Tasting Room option we pursued for the last couple of years has fallen through … possibly a good thing with all of the COVID-19 Restrictions. We hope to at least Host - Meet the Winemaker Events in the near future. With COVID-19 Infection Rates dropping, Restrictions being reduced, and the Vaccine being deployed … we hope to host Special Events soon where it will be safe to taste our new Wines and visit with our Team.
Where you can FIND Vibe Cellars Wines LOCALLY ... at a STORE NEAR YOU.
We now have several Bottle Shops and Stores carrying our Wines … here is where you can find us LOCALLY using this link. Keep checking, we continue to add more shops all the time.
