A sixth winery is set to open next month at The Waterfront Vancouver.
Airfield Estates winery announced Tuesday that it is opening a tasting room in the RiverWest building at 760 Waterfront Way, making it the first business to occupy the building’s ground-floor retail spaces. It is expected to open in late October.
The announcement makes Airfield Estates the sixth winery to enter The Waterfront Vancouver. The Maryhill Winery is the only winery currently open, but Brian Carter Cellars announced last week that it is opening a tasting room in the Rediviva building, which will also house a joint tasting room from Pepper Bridge Winery and Amavi Cellars. Naked Winery also said it is opening a tasting room in the Kirkland Tower condo building in 2020.
“Vancouver has been on our radar for many years and the opportunity that this venue posed seemed a perfect showplace for our estate-grown wines,” Airfield Estates owner Lori Stevens said in a statement on Tuesday.
Airfield Estates, based in Yakima Valley, has tasting rooms in Woodinville and Prosser. The winery is named after the World War II pilots who learned how to fly on the farm.
The winery has hired Camas builder Robertson & Olson Construction, and Portland architect Michael Flowers of MFA Architecture for the construction of the new tasting room, according to the announcement.
