Posted on February 12, 2020

Woodinville, Wash.— DeLille Cellars, a Bordeaux-inspired winery with a rich history of blending fruit fromWashington State’s iconic vineyards, announced Mari Rossi, former Enologist, has been promoted to Assistant Winemaker, under the direction of Director of Winemaking and Viticulture Jason Gorski.  The promotion comes after the winery’s first harvest in its new home at the former Redhook Brewery site in Woodinville, now called Hollywood Station.

“I look forward to my next chapter here at DeLille as the new Assistant Winemaker. The quality of fruit that we receive and the people I work with everyday make this journey so rewarding, and with our new tasting room opening up at Hollywood Station it feels like the possibilities are endless,” said Rossi.

Mari started at DeLille in 2014 after receiving a degree in Viticulture and Enology from Cornell University andworking harvests in Sonoma, Napa and New Zealand before landing in Woodinville.

DeLille Cellars moved its winemaking operations to the old Redhook facility in January of 2019.  The company recently opened its three-story retail tower in December 2019, which features seated tastings as well as elevated experiences such as library tastings and food and wine pairings.  The tasting room connects to the winemaking facility, where guests can peek into the barrel room to see the French oak barrels that are integral to DeLille’s traditional winemaking approach and philosophy.
