Premier family-owned Northwest winery and event center.
Our story begins on 10 acres of scenic rolling landscape in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, originally planted as a Christmas Tree farm in 1995, beginning a rich heritage in the town of Ridgefield, Washington.
Cultivating the land with lush landscapes of Noble, Grand and Douglas-fir trees, the Andre family brought an annual harvest of holiday joy to their devoted community. The Windy Hills Christmas Tree Farm became synonymous with warmth, laughter and a gathering place where hot cocoa and photos with Santa Claus became an annual Christmas tradition for families.
In 2013, Jim’s son-in-law, Dave Kelly, was thinking of retiring and was looking to put his time and energy into something that would positively impact the Ridgefield community. Having fond memories of the joyful gatherings on the Christmas tree farm at yule time, Dave contemplated a novel idea to replicate the warmth and merriment of the Christmas season, all year long: a winery. Soon, a seasoned wine maker was hired, rows of grapes planted, and a Napa-meets-Northwest tasting room and event venue built.
Windy Hills Winery marries the values of community unity, joy, and trustworthiness, so richly developed by the Windy Hills Christmas Tree Farm, and creates a year-round setting for patrons to gather from near and far. And building on the belief that quality matters, Windy Hills offers top-notch wines, well-received by wine aficionados and casual wine lovers, alike.
