FROM A 'GREAT DREAM' TO AN UNSTOPPABLE FORCE
Force Majeure Vineyards was originally launched as "Grand Reve Vintners" by entrepreneur Paul McBride and vineyard manager Ryan Johnson in 2004. Grand Reve quickly achieved critical praise and a loyal following for both its wines and vineyard efforts. Now with a new name, Force Majeure seeks to build on its initial success with continued innovation in winegrowing and winemaking.
The term "Force Majeure" is used to describe the relentless, powerful elements of Nature that form the terroir of our vineyards. It is also the unstoppable force that occurs when the highest level of viticulture combines with an all-star ensemble of Washington State winemaking talent. Our goal is to present a portfolio of wines that compare with the finest in the world.
These rare, vineyard-designated wines are created in extremely-limited quantities and are only available via mailing list, as well as a few select retailers and finer restaurants. Tastings are offerered by appointment only in our tasting room located at 12514 130th Lane NE in Kirkland, Washington. To be included on the mailing list, please add your name to our registry.
