In 1919, brothers J.M. Wade and Isham (Ike) Fielding Wade left Tennessee for Wenatchee Valley, WA. Here, they planted orchards and instilled in their families a devotion to the land. Mike Wade, grandson to Ike, is the third generation to grow apples and cherries. Mike fell in love with wine as a young man, and in 2000, with his wife, Karen, and the help of their children, family, and friends, made his first 400 cases of wine, and Fielding Hills Winery was born. “My husband said his goal was simply to ‘make a red wine that I like. If the rest of the world likes it, I will be honored,’” says Karen. With his first vintage, Mike was named Washington State’s Rising Star Winemaker by Wine Spectator. The demand for Fielding Hills wines quickly surpassed their production ability. In 2014, they built a tasting room and production facility along the shores of Lake Chelan and welcomed Winemaker Tyler Armour to the team. Learn more:
