Simpatico People

Simpatico…agreeable…likeable…compatible…that’s us and that’s our wine.

We are good friends who first met while classmates in winemaking school. As we gained experience in the wine industry, working with terrific folks in Washington and California, we became convinced of a couple basic winemaking truths: collaboration makes for better wine and making wine with friends is a lot more fun than making it alone. We love making wine together. Absolutely love it. And we passionately believe that some of the most flavorful, compelling and intense wine in the world can come from the place we love, Washington.

Craig Sosey - Owner/Winemaker

After retiring from the money management business, Craig decided to turn his home winemaking hobby into a second career. He went back to school at Northwest Wine Academy, finishing up in 2013. Craig gained experience assisting Patterson Cellars with their custom crush operation from 2012-2013.

Cassie Wistrom - Owner/Winemaker

A Montanan turned Seattleite, Cassie’s curiosity in wine sparked a desire to enroll at the Northwest Wine Academy and obtain a Certificate in Winemaking. Cassie has had the pleasure of working for Lewis Cellars and Betz Family Winery as well as the friendly neighborhood wine shop, West Seattle Cellars. When she's not at the winery, Cassie can be found kayaking, cross- country skiing, attending the opera, or out on the pickleball court!
