Perennial Vintners specializes in the delicate wines from the maritime-influenced cool climate viticulture of the Puget Sound AVA; this is exciting as it means you’ve likely not heard of most of the grapes we grow. We’ve pioneered the establishment of an underappreciated grape named Melon de Bourgogne (in France known as Muscadet) here in the Seattle, Washington state, U.S.A. area.PV is entirely Mike, so availability may be limited. I love to have tasting room visitors at most any time, if I can possibly be there to show you around and pour wine.
PV began in 1997, when Mike Lempriere decided to learn about wine, by actually making it. Mike continued to make wine as a hobbyist through 2002 and garnered many successes, including several awards in the Puyallup Fair amateur competitions.Mike soon came to understand that 95% of winemaking is truly done in the vineyard, and that making his own wines was not enough — it was necessary to live upon and manage the vineyard for the dream to be complete.
