he small craft winery of Adrice Wines started in 2012 in Napa, CA when winemaker Pamela Adkins produced our first Rosé the Riveter Rosé with Napa Sangiovese grapes. We made only 19 cases…and didn’t even label the bottles except for handwriting “Adrice Wines” on each bottle along with a signature of the winemaker!

Adrice moved to the Seattle area in 2015 and Pam immediately headed up to the Woodinville Winery District to start to build relationships and look for a winery/tasting room space. Before long, she connected with some of Washington’s AWESOME winemakers…and within two months, Pam had already made a couple of Barrels of Washington Red (by the way…another award-winning wine!) On June 4, 2016 – Adrice Wines officially opened their first winery and tasting room in a shared space in the Woodinville Winery District. The tasting room’s comfortable live-edge cedar plank tasting bars serve a plethora of yummy and award-winning wines. Within only 10 short months – the winery and sales started outgrowing our small shared space….and Adrice moved to their second location in Woodinville’s Artisan Hill opening there in April ’17. Over the three years in Artisan Hill, case production grew 700% along with sales…so two weeks before Covid-19 hit – they moved moved back to a MUCH larger winery and tasting room space in the Warehouse District. In their new Warehouse district location, Adrice has expanded business to serve not only award-winning wines…but guest tap beer (coming soon), cider, and yummy foods. And….the tasting room space is flexible and expected to be a destination event space!!! Check with either Pam or Julie for more information on event space rental.

Everything with Adrice Wines has gotten bigger – except their prices. Growing wine club, growing tasting room, open more hours, fun events…but even with all the growth, Adrice Wines still feels (and is) a small craft winery producing just shy of 3200 cases per year as of the 2020 vintage. Each customer gets individualized attention from owners Pam & Julie. And Adrice has received RAVE REVIEWS about our Tasting Room and Customer Experience Lead – Rhonda. While Pam labors to make high-quality, distinctive wines that customers will enjoy and share with their loved ones – Julie & Rhonda pay exquisite attention to create memorable, story-filled and educational customer experiences to bring guests back and help grow the business.
