From Inception to Perfection
Perry and Penny Preston, with the help of son Ethan and lots of family and friends, officially launched Stina’s Cellars from a home garage operation to a store front in 2006. An unfavorable first attempt at winemaking in 1996 fostered a challenge resulting in the wide variety of high quality wines at affordable prices that we enjoy from Stina’s Cellars today.
Over the first ten-year span from inception to perfection, Perry experimented with grapes and processes, entered many contests at fairs and food & wine festivals, winning numerous awards. Expect to find these fine wines at major festivals and events around the sound, at Ocean Shores, and from Edmonds to Vancouver.
A labor of love and evolution, the company currently offers 11 varieties, both reds and whites at a retail price range of $14 to $20. But hurry, these wines are only available while supplies last and you may need to wait for the next creation. Stina’s is now available at 100 retail store locations and online.
Maintaining focus on producing small lots of high quality wine at affordable prices, the company has been able to increase production over the last few years. They currently ship to 17 states outside of Washington and were included in an international shipment of products to China in March 2011. The company has expansion plans in the works, including more varietals and exporting to countries outside the United States.
Stina’s Cellars is a one-of-a-kind Lakewood business; being the only winery in town and one of a handful in all of Pierce County.
They are located at 9316 Lakeview Avenue SW, Suite B, on the East side of Lakeview Industrial Park. The tasting room is open Thursdays; Fridays & Saturdays 1-6 PM. Call for private tastings by appointment at (253) 227-9748.
