Novelty Hill Winery

Novelty  Hill Winery Before starting our winery in 2000, we considered the possibilities. What if we could use Stillwater Creek Vineyard as the basis for launching a winery that combined the best of two worlds we know well – a winery that was about innovation and tradition? Our link to innovation is through the world of high-tech and is best expressed in our vineyards. Winery owner Tom Alberg is a Seattle attorney who founded Madrona Venture Group, a company that has built its business around technology and Tom’s senior management experience in telecommunications. Then there is the tradition. That’s where the winery comes into play. Tom and his wife Judi share a life-long passion for wine, a commitment to quality in all things, and a deep-seated connection to the Pacific Northwest. Our vision for Novelty Hill is to craft limited quantities of artisan wines. At the same time, we’d like to make a contribution the on-going quality of Washington wines through our learning in the vineyard. With a business background that is about trying new things, it all seems like a pretty good investment.

Summers are long and dry, autumn temperatures are warm during the day and cool at night allowing the grapes to retain their natural acidity. The 2003 vintage was no exception. It was a banner year and is most notable for its warm temperatures and high overall heat accumulation that produced wines with ripe fruit character.
