:Nota Bene Cellars


:Nota Bene Cellars traces its legacy from the Négociant, a French winemaker who sourced grapes from disparate growers to craft a wholly unique wine not available to standalone vineyards. The Négociant grew in notoriety by pinpointing the finest grapes and showcasing them as varietals or crafting them into an elaborate and unique blend.

In four decades of winemaking, Master vintner Tim Narby has perfected this practice in the Pacific Northwest, highlighting the varietals and blending intricate gorgeous wines known for their big flavor spotlighting the under appreciated and sophisticated Washington grape varieties.

Narby has walked the vineyards throughout the Yakima and Columbia River Valleys. Whether your preference is a grape from Horse Heaven Hills or Rattlesnake Hills, only the finest Washington grapes are considered for :Nota Bene.

Come enjoy the finest of what Washington has to offer.

Go Big:Go Washington.
