Nanstad Winery

           About Us


Our wine making practices are very low-tech and labor intensive. The grapes are block selected from mature vines, harvested at optimal sugar and acid levels, and hand-picked not machine harvested.

We use small open-top vats and punch-down every four hours allowing us to closely monitor and control the fermentation and skin contact time. Using a basket press, we press the wine slowly to avoid extracting any harsh flavors or excess tannins. During the winemaking process, we minimize the use of chemicals and pump only when absolutely necessary so as to maintain the true character and nature of the grape.

We've Changed Our Name:

We changed our name in October of 2006. The winery was first bonded as McGavick Nanstad Winery. In 2004, the McGavick side of the winery decided to move in their own direction providing quality wines for charitable causes. So, in October of 2006 we decided it would be best to clearly separate the two sides of the winery. McGavick wines can be found in many fine restaurants around the Puget Sound area and may be purchased by the case from the McGavick Winery. Nanstad Winery will still offer fine red wines through select restaurants, local wine shops, QFC Quality Food Centers, and our website.

What We Offer:

We offer premium hand-made red wines for a reasonable price. Our grapes come from hand selected vineyards in the Yakima Valley, Horse Heaven Hills and Red Mountain Appellations . Our premium wines evolve from the finest Washington State grapes money can buy. The varietals we offer are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. We have also considered offering a blended red dinner wine. Once you've tried our wines, we would love it if you would share your comments and tasting notes.
