March 28, 2012, Yakima, WA – Anthony and Linda Haralson, a local pharmacist and nurse, respectively, announce the official launch of AntoLin Cellars. The couple will showcase their wine collection during the annual Taste of Washington event being held on March 31 and April 1 at Seattle’s Century Link Event Center.
AntoLin Cellars sources 800 cases of Riesling, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah from Glacier, their 5-acre estate vineyard, and other select sites in the Yakima and Columbia Valleys. The wines retail between $13.50 and $24 and are available online and throughout Washington state.
The Haralsons first conceived of AntoLin Cellars ten years ago when they began making wine in their basement. In 2008, Haralson earned a certificate in Winemaking from the University of California at Davis and planted grapes on the couple’s estate property, Glacier Vineyards, in Washington’s upper Zillah Hills.
According to co-owner and winemaker, Tony Haralson, “It has been quite a journey. Linda and I began with a goal of growing and producing high quality, expressive wines that are equally appealing in value. We’ve enjoyed sharing these wines in our local community and are looking forward to making new connections in Seattle.”
The AntoLin Cellars wine list includes a 2010 Estate Riesling and a 2010 Viognier released in late 2011. The winery also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah; 2009 vintages will be released and featured at Taste of Washington followed by a winter 2013 release of Chardonnay, and estate Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
