Ambassador was founded on the simple belief that no other experience is quite as enchanting as drinking wine. We know that something magical happens when you drink wine with friends; good wine becomes great wine and good friends become better friends. This was the case with our founding partners. An eclectic group of individuals with diverse professional backgrounds, their lives and friendships have been forever altered by the shared experience of creating and drinking what we believe to be a fantastic wine. Formed in 2004, and named after the mystical vineyard that has been so good to us, Ambassador’s vision is to become the top estate producing winery on Washington state’s Red Mountain. To succeed in this vision, we live and work by three guiding principles: 1) Take the process, not ourselves, seriously 2) Life is too short to drink anything other than spectacular wine 3) Only put our name on a bottle of truly spectacular wine. In other words, make great wine and have as much fun as possible while we do it.
Producing only estate wines allows us the unique ability to control the wine making process from vine to bottle. Our vineyard is young but under the expert care of our vineyard manager Dick Boushey, it has produced some of the top tier grapes on Red Mountain and Washington State. Combine this with the handcrafted expertise of our winemaker, Sarah Goedhart and the end product is magic in a bottle!
