Wilridge WineryWilridge is a small, family winery run in the European tradition. Owners Lysle Wilhelmi and Paul Beveridge live above the winery in the Madrona neighborhood of Seattle with their two sons, Mack and Liam. Wine making at Wilridge is a family and neighborhood affair, with relatives and friends pitching in. Paul is winemaker, Lysle is in charge of sales, and Mack and Liam handle barrel washing. a

Wilridge WineryWilridge Winery was founded in 1988 by Paul Beveridge and Jim Wilhelmi (Lysle's Father and the "Wil" in Wilridge). The wines were made in the cellar of Madrona Bistro, a restaurant run by Lysle. Initially, the wines were available only at the restaurant, but with the closure of the Bistro in 1995, Paul and Lysle decided to expand the winery. They lifted the building and excavated a 1,500 square foot cellar. New equipment was purchased from Italy, where there is a long tradition of small, family-scale wine making.
The first vintage from the new facility Wilridge Winerywas produced in 1996.

Lysle, Paul, Mack and Liam still live above the winery with their black cat, Pinot Noir. Wilridge Winery specializes in hand crafted red wines made from selected single vineyard sites in Washington and Oregon. The grapes are picked in the Yakima, Walla Walla and Willamette Valleys. They are crushed, pressed, and aged in new French oak barrels at the winery. Current production includes Washington State Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Nebbiolo, and Oregon Pinot Noir.
