Wine Wednesday | Convergence Zone Cellars

Week 126

Every Wednesday we feature a local winery for tastings…$10 buys you 3 tastings! Retail bottles will be available; the tasting fee will be applied toward your purchase, or enjoy a bottle with dinner.

Reservations highly recommended but not required.

e are a family-owned and operated winery located in Washington State’s Snoqualmie Valley, specifically North Bend, about 30 miles east of Seattle in the Cascade Mountain foothills. The grapes for our wines are from some of Washington’s best vineyards in the Red Mountain, Snipes Mountain, Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills, White Bluffs and Columbia Valley American Viticultural Areas (AVAs).
Our first vintage was produced in 2008 and is still being produced (Storm Front Red Blend). Woodinville’s Warehouse District was our first home until 2012, when we moved 5 blocks to what is now called Artisan Hill. In 2016, we built a stand-alone winery in North Bend where we moved our production and tasting space.
We are often asked, “What is a Convergence Zone” or “How did you come up with your name”? The naming of the winery is really distilled into three unique parts:
It’s a weather phenomenon in the Puget Sound area. It just so happens that our winery started in the middle of the CZ.
“Zone” is also a city planning term (ex. residential zone, commercial zone, industrial zone, etc). Our winemaker and co-owner Scott Greenberg, is a retired city planner. We thought it was only fitting to create a “Convergence Zone” bringing together city planning and the art of winemaking.
It means a convergence of different grapes, vineyards and winemaking styles to produce drinkable, agreeable, aromatic, palate-pleasing, and long-finishing wines.
