We love wine, food and the great outdoors. 


Located in Seattle’s laid-back West Seattle neighborhood, Welcome Road Winery and Wine Room is for fun-loving wine drinkers who appreciate French winemaking tradition and Pacific Northwest spirit.   

Our award-winning wines are elegant and bold, but play nicely with all types of food – from BBQ to holiday dinners to grilled seafood.  We are known in particular for our luscious Syrah and Bordeaux-style blends.  

We are the epitome of a boutique, urban winery - making just 600 cases of wine per year.  Winemaker Leigh is a graduate of the WSU Enology program and works in marketing during the day, while co-owner Kristen practices law.  We were inspired to start a winery after visits to wine county throughout France and eastern Washington.  

Our Wine Room is a destination for Seattle locals and visitors alike to hang out, celebrate and chill with a tasting flight or glass paired with local cheese on the patio.  Sometimes there is karaoke.  Sometimes there is a corn hole tournament.  Always there are friendly people - often with a dog or two.  We are located in the heart of West Seattle at the corner of California Avenue & Charlestown, just minutes from downtown Seattle and beautiful Alki beach. 

Our winery is named Welcome Road after a road near Mount Baker where we have a little cabin.  We love nothing more than hanging out on the back deck grilling and drinking great wine with friends after a long hike or lots of ski runs.  We like to think there is a little bit of those good times in every bottle of our wine.
