Wine barrels at 14 Hands


Guided by flavor, wherever it leads, with the vision of creating untamed wine

Winemaking is our adventure. We step outside tradition to bring forth spirited Washington wines that above all else, taste great.

A Fresh Approach

Making everyday wines that people enjoy drinking is our ultimate goal, so we often make decisions throughout the winemaking process based purely on taste. In the end, we want our wines to be smooth and fruit-forward, yet bold and complex—making approachable, easy-drinking wines that taste amazing by the glass, cup, or can.

Zach Richardson is a native of the Tri-Cities in Eastern Washington. After getting a degree in Earth and Space Sciences from the University of Washington and working for a Geotechnical Engineering firm, in 2015 he moved back to the Tri-Cities and spent harvest running analysis on vineyard samples in the Columbia Crest lab. “Everything that goes into making a bottle of wine opened my eyes to a great industry that has always been in my backyard.” Zach was then asked to join the 14 Hands team as a Lab Technician, completed the WSU Enology program, and then joined the winemaking team as an Enologist before being promoted to his current role as Winemaker. What does Zach enjoy when not at the office? “14 Hands Sauvignon Blanc is one of my favorites to open up on a hot summer day,” he says. An excellent choice for a place where there is no shortage of hot summer days.
