When asked why Manson Jason says they love our community and his wife Erin has relatives here. The tasting room had space in the Manson Village Center at 145 Wapato Way.
New tasting room in Manson
Jason found out the Village Market in Manson was closing its doors this year and he was able to take advantage of the great location at 50 Wapato Way and on May 26 they held their grand opening in the new location.
Jason comes from Gig Harbor, Washington. He grew up learning about life and fishing from his father, Marty, and Grandfather, Nick. Jason's journey to wine making began while helping his grandparents make wine in their basement. He holds a degree in biology from the University of Puget Sound and after years of work in sales, with wine collecting as a hobby, Jason decided to learn more about the wine industry. A few classes at South Seattle Community College's Northwest Wine Academy led him to the conclusion, why couldn't they start our own winery?
Jason talking wine
Erin grew up in the small, coastal town of Raymond, Washington. Like her mother and many other members of her family, Erin worked as a public school teacher in Washington. Together with Jason, they are raising their son, Nicholas daughter, Olivia and working to build the winery.
Ancestry Cellars produces 2000 cases of wine annually and the favorite in Manson is the 2014 Chenin Blanc that tastes like fresh lemon pound cake with aromas of fragrant honeysuckle and juicy green apple. Their tasting room has plenty of room and a friendly staff to assist you on your wine tasting adventure.
