From the McCrea Winery website:
“The McCrea Cellars winery is located in a lovely country setting with a stunning view of Mt. Rainier. We’re a half-hour from Olympia, the State capital, and benefit from being only about an hour south of Seattle, with its many fine restaurants, markets, and cultural riches. Our lush, green maritime zone has a moderate climate with warm summers and occasional winter snow.”
Rolf Boone reported for The Olympian on August 12th:
“Doug McCrea of McCrea Cellars of Rainier plans to open the Olympia Wine and Tasting Bar at noon Saturday [Aug. 14] , featuring the red and white Rhone Valley varietals that the business is known for, as well as Salida wines, a relatively new wine label for the company.
The wine-tasting bar is in the New Caldonia Building on Fifth Avenue, which also is home to the Olympia Downtown Association and the shoe store Bonaventure.
McCrea Cellars offers wine tasting by appointment at his production facility in Rainier, but the location doesnt lend itself to visitors, he said. The new tasting room allows the business to market itself to an area outside of Seattle, potentially boosting its direct-to-consumer sales, which represent 18 percent of McCreas sales.”
