Skagit Crest Vineyard & Winery is a small family owned venture located in Sedro Woolley, Washington overlooking the beautiful Skagit Valley. Estate grown grapes from our five-acre vineyard produce most of our fine wines. Great wine begins in the vineyard. Our vines bathe in sunshine twelve hours a day during the growing season and our southwestern slope makes an ideal site for growing quality grapes. We think local wines from our local vines are an excellent complement to Pacific Northwest cuisine.
We believe wine is about Time, Place, & Circumstance. ‘Time’ is carefully tending the vines, harvesting perfect grapes, crafting the finest wine, and time savoring the wine. ‘Place’ is about growing local unique grapes, making wine within feet of its vines, and enjoying wine in your favorite setting. ‘Circumstance’ is soil and climate growing perfect grapes, making wine to bring out its best qualities, and last, enjoying it with the best of foods and friends. Wine embodies Time, Place, & Circumstance.
We would be honored if our wines joined your special time, place, and circumstance with friends and family.
Skagit Crest has a new tasting room in the beautiful, historic town of La Conner, Wa. We are conveniently located just north of Gilkey Square on the boardwalk. Come stroll the streets of La Conner, stop in and see us and have a glass of wine.
