About us

Company details

THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR WINE QUALITY. IT BEGINS IN THE VINEYARDS & ENDS IN THE CELLAR.
Since our first vintage in 1997 we’ve had a single minded goal of crafting compelling wines with individual character that are approachable and ageworthy, and which showcase Washington as a distinguished wine region of the world. 

By carving out specific vineyard blocks and being meticulous in the vineyard and cellar we are able to achieve the quality we aspire to. As importantly over the years our winery culture has become a way of life in which everyone – our growers, winery team and customers are family. 

Today, Betz family Winery is headed by our two families, both committed to be true to our heritage, our family members, and true to what Betz winery embodies: wines of dimension and pleasure, wines that allow the character of Washington to shine through. They are a blend of the best elements of the new and the old worlds; full ripe fruit and yet structured for longevity. 

We believe our best wines are yet to come.
