Glacial Lake Missoula Wine Company is a garagistes winery based in the border-town of Blaine, Washington. We are Tom Davis & Tracey DeGraff, a Vancouver B.C. couple. Tom is a former brew-master and bartender, and Tracey is also from the hospitality industry.
As passionate amateurs, we experimented for a decade making red wine from grapes from wine regions all over the Northwest. In 2000 we discovered how superior eastern Washington’swine-grapes really were, in making a truly awesome wine from a ton of Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard near Sunnyside, in the Yakima Valley.
In 2002 we started the winery in Blaine, WA, 50 kilometers from our home in Vancouver, but the closest point in Washington State. True to form, the winery is in a converted garage, and uses both modern refrigerated stainless tanks, and traditional cooperage.
