Alta Cellars

We’re committed to making some of the best wines the Northwest has to offer, and would honor your presence to try them. We are a boutique winery located in the town of Manson over in the beautiful Lake Chelan area. The winery features very limited release quantities of premium quality red wines with special attention to the Bordeaux inspired varietals that you are sure to enjoy.

Our wines are produced primarily from fruit grown in the Columbia Valley AVA. We are fortunate to have relationships with some of the states most well respected vineyards from the Royal Slope, Wahluke Slope, and Yakima Valley areas.

Owner/winemaker, Jay Pedersen has been a commercial fisherman for most of his life, as the Captain of The Ocean Leader in the Bering Sea. The job provides him with several months off in-between seasons. Back in 2005, With a love of wine, a curiosity of the winemaking process, and a few months of free time, he began volunteering at Cuillin Hills Winery, headed up by award winning winemaker Derek DesVoigne. Jay and Derek formed a fast friendship, and Jay’s passion for wine continued to grow while learning the process.
