The Woodinville Wine Country Blog will be featuring our member wineries over the next several months. The first winery we are excited to provide background on is Adams Bench.
Tim and Erica Blue are the owner/winemakers of Adams Bench Winery. The Blue’s winery and home are located on 3.5 acres on Hollywood Hill about one mile up the hill from the Old Hollywood Schoolhouse. On that site, overlooking pastures, trees and the Olympic Mountains, Adams Bench produces Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Blends, 1000 cases a year. Tim grew up on a farm in Indiana, and came to Seattle after law school to practice law as a trial lawyer. Erica is an ObGyn trained doctor who attended the University of Washington for medical school and residency, after undergraduate studies in Chemistry at Boise State University. They founded Adams Bench in 2005, and moved to their present home on Hollywood Hill in June 2006. Chris Camarda, Andrew Will Winery, served as their consultant in the beginning. Adams Bench is generally open by appointment several Saturday’s a month or for special events for its “Collector’s Club”.
