Our Winery


Our Winery


Arbor Crest Wine Cellars is a second-generation, family-owned winery, headquartered on the historic Cliff House Estate. It was established in 1982 as the 29th winery in Washington state (now numbering over 900). Our winemaker, Kristina Mielke-van Löben Sels, is guided by the philosophy that the best wines begin in the vineyard. When selecting grapes, she focuses her attention on vineyard location and the quality of both the soil and the vines, working closely with our distinguished growers year-round to achieve the most concentrated and balanced fruit possible. After harvest, she maintains pure fruit quality through limited handling. Her results capture the power of the fruit and purity of the vineyards, producing wines with balance and style that display the natural integrity of their region.

Together with husband Jim van Löben Sels, Arbor Crest’s General Manager and Viticulturalist, Kristina now celebrates 20 years of handcrafting elegant, award-winning varietals for Arbor Crest. They are committed to providing you with an exceptional experience by crafting wines of great quality, using Washington’s best fruit, sourced from some of the most well established and respected vines in the state.

Paired with attentive customer service, live music, remarkable events and a breathtaking setting, a visit to the Cliff House Estate will leave you with a lush and lingering finish!
