Winemaker Charles Smith is heading to Seattle after outgrowing his Walla Walla winery. Smith has leased two warehouses in Georgetown for what will comprise an enormous wine-focused complex when all is said and done. Smith was recently written up in a Wine Spectator feature, which dubbed his wines "some of Washington's best."

First and foremost is a 32,000 square-foot winery and tasting room on South Albro Place, where the high-end wines under the K Vintners, Charles Smith, and SIXTO labels will be made. The tasting room, designed by award-winning architect Tom Kundig, will spread across two levels and will be attached to a new restaurant called Jet City. An exact opening date is TBD, but the team is shooting for Spring 2015; plans for the second tasting room are still in the works.
