Spoiled Dog Winery was founded in 2003 by Jack and Karen Krug. While they might appear to be your conventional winery owners, there is nothing conventional about their approach to wine. One doesn’t think of Washington first or maybe even second when it comes to Pinot Noir. When they decided to move to Whidbey Island and start a winery in a beautiful farm setting, Karen’s passion for Pinot Noir led her to conduct exhaustive research and identify a diverse set of clones that thrive in the maritime micro-climate of Whidbey Island and produce a distinctive complex yet balanced wine using sustainable growing methods.
Spoiled Dog Winery’s second generation joined the family business when Jake and Lindsay moved to Whidbey Island from Colorado with their children in 2015. This has brought a new perspective to the winery along with both generations taking a lead role in winemaking, sales, vineyard care and tasting room management. Having two generations on the farm and in the winery has allowed us to share our family’s passion of wine with more people than we ever imagined possible.
If you love good wine, our grapes are sourced from some of the best vineyards in Washington and Oregon. Our wines are handcrafted at our winery with meticulous focus on balance. The Krug family wants visitors to feel like they’ve discovered a secret spot that will become a destination and a reason to regularly return to Whidbey Island for a visit.From the moment you enter the tasting room in the winery among the barrels of aging wine you realize you have discovered a special destination.
