Guardian Cellars

Guardian Cellars is a boutique winery located in Woodinville, Washington. It was founded in 2004 by Jerry Reiner, a police officer who turned his passion for winemaking into a career. The winery produces a variety of wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Riesling. Guardian Cellars wines are known for their balance, complexity, and approachable style.

The winery has three tasting rooms: one in Woodinville, one in Maltby, and one in Walla Walla. The tasting rooms offer a variety of wines to sample, as well as food pairings and educational experiences.

Guardian Cellars is a popular destination for wine lovers from all over the world. The winery has been awarded numerous accolades, including Wine Spectator’s “Best of the Best” award.

Here are some of the wines that Guardian Cellars produces:

  • Gun Metal: A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, this wine is known for its smooth, velvety texture and flavors of black currant, dried raspberry, and black cherry.
  • Guardian And Newsprint: A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, this wine is full-bodied and complex, with flavors of dark fruit, spice, and tobacco.
  • Riesling: A crisp and refreshing wine, this Riesling is perfect for pairing with seafood or light fare.
  • Guardian 2014 Confidential Source Merlot: Guardian’s 2014 Confidential Source Merlot is a masterful blend sourced from top vineyards like Ciel du Cheval, Conner Lee, Obelisco, and Stonetree. Its reserved aromas reveal hints of barrel spice, leading to a full-bodied fruit experience with a spicy finish.

If you are looking for a delicious and approachable Washington wine, I would recommend trying Guardian Cellars. You can find their wines at select retailers or at their tasting rooms.
