Alan & Diane began making wine in their garage

– and it was just going to be a hobby!  This new hobby soon turned into a passion that could not be ignored.

Alan’s winemaking focuses primarily on Bordeaux style wines. We take great pride in sourcing our fruit from some of the best vineyards throughout Washington State.

Silver Bell Winery’s first commercial vintage was 2010 and opened our La Conner tasting room in 2012. Along the way, Chelan won our hearts with it’s amazing wineries and beautiful views – we just had to join the fun. In 2017 we closed the La Conner tasting room and relocated to the Lake Chelan Valley to begin building our new winery.

At the same time as the move, our son Zach attended Eastern Washington University and graduated Spring 2020 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. He moved to Lake Chelan and joined the Silver Bell Winery team. We are so excited for this new beginning. 

See you soon!

Alan, Diane, & Zach Holtzheimer
