In 1974, Bob Cook, head of the Raspberry Growers Association, took on the task of building a winery near the town of Puyallup (towards Sumner) in order to absorb a surplus of raspberries. By early 1975 friends and growers had pledged support, and a corporation was formed. In January 1976, the first fermentations were started. The winery was still in operation in 1981.
Apparently in the late-seventies they had a wide variety of fruit
wines, from sweet to dry, including raspberry and rhubarb wines.
Of special note:
