Sparkman Cellars Winemaker Dinner
Kelly and Chris Sparkman launched Sparkman Cellars in Woodinville, Washington in 2004 to focus on their family. With many years in the hospitality world, they felt uniquely situated in the midst of the Northwest's extraordinary and booming wine industry. Winemakers, growers, restaurant folks and wine shop people all made up this community that they found compelling.
It all synced up with our family's vision: working with the finest raw ingredients this planet has to offer, crafting from it something real and living, and sharing it with folks who are literally thirsty for it. Fusing Art, Science, Agriculture, Philosophy and all the Good Stuff from Life into a bottle of wine that we are proud of is both a challenge and a reward, says Chris.
Sparkman Cellars 2013 Holler Cabernet Sauvignon was named #21 on the 2016 Wine Spectator Top 100. The winery has also been named one of Wine Spectators Rising Stars, Wine Enthusiasts Cult Winery and Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries in the World. The 2013 Birdie Riesling was named the #7 Wine in the World by Wine Enthusiast.
Our style produces artisan handcrafted award-winning wines. We also enjoy contributing to our community and to causes that resonate with our family, which is another way that the wine world helps make our lives rich, adds Kelly.
Why did we start our winery? Well, I wrote all the visionary stuff like Our intention is to make wines that are considered among the finest available, and that will hopefully find their way onto your table and such, which is true. Then Kelly asked me, Why dont we just tell them what we stand for? So thats where our tag line came from: Family. Good Livin. Damn Fine Wine. Seems like that makes sense to people. Especially if your wine is delicious and your kids are good people.
