Peter Devison

Owner-Winemaker

Peter was born and raised in Halifax, Canada. He decided to make the move across the country to Vancouver BC after high school and quickly found his passion for the rich culture around him. Peter attended the University of British Columbia while working at washing dishes, bussing tables, serving diners, running wine programs, and stocking wine shelves. He rapidly became very adept at sampling fine wines and skilled in the art of savoring and pairing complex notes with various cuisines.

Upon completion of all the wine certification courses available in Vancouver, Peter’s dedication to know everything he could about wine led to enrolling in school to study Enology in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Peter arrived in Eastern Washington in 2004 for a temporary harvest position. He quickly saw the vast potential and quality in wine growing and soon decided that Washington would be his new home.

Over the past 15 years in Washington state Peter has won many accolades for his unique approach to winemaking and has been featured in various publications in praise of his artistry and philosophy. He most recently ran the wine programs for EFESTE and Cadaretta and has since started his own consulting business focusing in Native Fermentation as well as launching his own wines.

Kelsey Malm Devison

Owner – General Manager

Kelsey was introduced to wine culture in her teenage years. She began working during summer school breaks for a small distributor assisting with wine resets at retail outlets around WA state.

As a vigorous curiosity in wine developed, Kelsey continued to study on her own and became one of the first students at the Northwest Wine Academy in Seattle. After her studies there, she quickly moved on into a career in wine sales, marketing and importing.
