About Us

Laurelhurst Cellars is a Seattle winery located in the Georgetown neighborhood just South of the stadiums downtown. The winery was established in 2004 by Greg Smallwood and Dave Halbgewachs in the basement and garage of a home in Laurelhurst. It did not take us long before we grew out of that space and moved the winery into a warehouse space in Georgetown. From the start our vision was to create wines that would stand alone, showcasing their personality as a result of unique soil, climate and vineyard management. With a commitment to quality, we are producing wines from some of the most prized vineyards in Washington State. We produce only small lots that showcase Washington’s unique terroir, creating wines that remain true to their Varietal character. Our cellar practices of small-lot fermentation, gentle handling and hand selecting French oak barrels complement the dimensions of Laurelhurst Cellars wines.

Great wine is a reflection of its origin. Our wines showcase the unique expression of our vineyards which include Boushey Vineyard, Klipsun Vineyard, Kiona Vineyard, Songbird Vineyard, Burgess Vineyard and Zephyr Ridge Vineyard. Each of these vineyards allow us to craft wines with unique vineyard and Varietal characteristics with balance and elegance.

We invite you to experience our passion. Our wines are available directly from the winery or at select restaurants, wine shops and grocery stores in the Puget Sound area. Our wines: Klipsun Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Mountain Cabernet, Red Mountain Syrah, Boushey Vineyard Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Zephyr Ridge Petite Sirah, Laurus Nobilis (Bordeaux Style Blend) and Azorica (Cabernet – Syrah Blend).
