The critical praise for Chris Gorman belies the winery's age - his wines came out of the gates with big scores. In 2008, Wine Spectator named Chris Gorman one of ten rising stars in American winemaking. The wines continue to be among Wine Spectator's highest-rated Washington reds.

Gorman used to be a one-man show - now it's twice the size! Joking aside, Chris Gorman has added an assistant winemaker, Ben Paplow, who is rumored to be an exciting up-and-coming Woodinville winemaker.

Chris Gorman descended into the wine business after graduating from university in 1991, apparently too affected to climb out, he made the best of it.Cutting his teeth on world class Barolo and Barbaresco, he spent 3 years working for a small Italian Importer and never looked back.

For the next decade, as a main stay in the Seattle wine trade, Chris was lucky to represent some of the finest wines in the world. He traveled extensively in the wine areas of Italy, Spain and Germany.

His is a simple philosophy; to make wine, it is imperative to understand it. Those early years found him producing small batch wines, using stolen fruit from many of Washington's finest vineyards. In 2002 Gorman Winery went commercial.
