Gorman Winery

Gorman Wines

Chris Gorman says he descended into the wine business after graduating from university in 1991. He was apparently too effected to climb out, and 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.

In the late '90s, Chris made wine with Mark McNeely of Mark Ryan Winery before opening his own winery and tasting room in the same industrial park. In 2002 Gorman Winery went commercial. He specializes in massive, meaty reds with very original names.
