Basel Cellars handcrafts their signature wines with passion
Basel Cellars is located right in the middle of Woodinville wine country. They handcraft their signature wines with not only prestigious grapes but infinite passion.
Basel's winemaker, Dirk Brink, was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. He was surrounded by beautiful vineyards and found winemaking to be a way of life. He moved to the states in 2004 and got his first job with Chateau St. Michelle.
At Basel, education is important. They pride themselves on making sure every customer leaves knowing a little more about their wine than they did before. "We want to teach people that wine is really all relative," said Dirk.
Dirk wants people to pop the cork and get excited. "I want people to visualize us harvesting and producing the wine in Walla Walla. They should be able to taste our wine and visualize all the hard work that went into making it."
"I want people to experience the passion we have as employees at Basel, the passion we have for the industry and process is what I hope people will experience at our tasting room. We pour each glass with pride," said Dirk.
Besides leaving with a bottle of wine...or even a few, Basel Winemaker Dirk Brink, wants people to leave the winery feeling passionate for wine. Not only because of taste but because it's uniquely made.
