About Hawkins Cellars
Founded in 2007, owner and winemaker Thane Hawkins sources fruit from both the Willamette Valley and Columbia Valley in eastern Washington for his award-winning wines reflecting Rhone-style varietals, such as Syrah, Viognier, and Mourvédre as well as Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. After working harvest at Wine by Joe, in 2007 Methven Family Vineyards hired Hawkins as their assistant winemaker. While working at Methven, he produced a small quantity of his own wine and Hawkins Cellars was born. Today, Hawkins continues to work closely with the most recognized growers in both Oregon and Washington to produce small lots of handcrafted wines with distinctive varietal character. Hawkins Cellars offers a year-round Club Cuvée wine club with three annual wine deliveries and special member events and discounts.
