Rainier Wine was launched in 2004 when Damian Davis began selling wine out of the back of his car to local Seattle merchants. Since then, we’ve become a fully operational winery with over 100,000 cases in annual sales. Based in Seattle, Washington, Rainier Wine maintains a portfolio of wine labels, such as Mad Housewife, Diversion, Besitos, Portlandia, The Grifter, and other project in the works.
The team at Rainier Wine recognizes that wine should never intimidate, make you think too hard, or create a new line item in your budget. Above all else, wine should be fun, relaxing, and something you can afford to look forward to at the end of each and every day.
