Lone Canary Winery

Lone Canary

Lone Canary Winery is owned by Mike Scott - former winemaker at Caterina Winery - and Jeanne and Steve Schaub - who are vineyardists and great fans of Mike's wines. The winery is located in Spokane, Washington.

Through the fifteen years that he has been making wines in Washington State, Mike Scott has doggedly sourced the finest fruit from the Yakima and Columbia Valleys. At Lone Canary he continues his quest to procure grapes which best express the characteristics of fragrance and flavor which only Yakima Valley and Columbia Valley fruit can show.

In Mike's words "I want Lone Canary wines to combine the wonderful expressiveness of Washington State grapes with the depth and elegance of wines made in an Old World style." In order to achieve this, a greater degree of winemaking freedom is required: one free from the constraints of varietal wines. So for his red wines, Mike will eventually offer three distinct blends, each reflective of a different regional style.

Mike says "Our logo is an artistic rendering of Washington’s state bird, the American Goldfinch or Wild Canary. Forging a lone and exciting path using Washington’s exemplary fruit, we have chosen to stand apart from the flock through unique artistic expression in our wines. "

Mike will point out that his longest running love affair is with a grape varietal called Sauvignon Blanc. This love affair continues and he is very happy to still be crafting a Sauvignon Blanc in the style for which he is renowned.
