Welcome to Pearl Vinters.
Who we are.
Pearl Vintners was established in 2014 by Micah and Paula McNelly. Micah discovered his passion for the winemaking process working alongside his father Joel, who with his business partner started the first commercial winery in Cowlitz County in 2003. In 2021, The winery migrated south to Portland to consolidate our winemaking life with the city we’ve called home for two decades. PV produces small case counts of premium red wines which are aged in a combination of new and neutral French, Hungarian, and American oak for anywhere from 22 to 30 months.
The practice of winemaking is one of continuous exploration. Given the quality grapes grown in Washington state, we have a great deal of land to cover. Our ultimate goal is to provide safe passage for quality fruit from crush to bottle and continually work to conserve varietal expression and terroir. We strive day in and day out to ensure we stay focused on improving the quality, character, and joy experienced through both producing, and more importantly, consumption of PV wines.
