Fortuity Cellars


We are hiring. Join Team Fortuity.

We chose to get into the wine industry more than eight years ago because of the connections made with people over wine! 

From the very beginning, we placed the highest priority on making the highest quality wines and wine critics have recognized us for our efforts. 

Our wine style is crisp, clean and aromatic white and rosé wines and brilliantly balanced, elegant, fruit-forward red wines.

We source exclusively from the Yakima Valley and live by the mantra “Yakima Valley,  Destined for Wine.” The growers and vineyards we work with are recognized as top vineyards, not just in Yakima Valley, but in the entire state of Washington.

We believe the people and the unique climate, soil, sun, slopes, wind and water help produce some of the highest quality wines in the world. We focus on single varietal, single vineyard wines that showcase the truest expression of this place. Red blend lovers will appreciate our traditional and unconventional blends that have gained recognition in recent years.

We love being a part of our local and #WAwine community
