Created in 2004 in Walla Walla, Washington, House Wine conceived by ex-rock n’ roll manager and award-winning Washington winemaker Charles Smith. Inspired by Europe’s easy-to-enjoy, unfussy everyday table wines that bring people together, Smith’s vision was to create a delicious, quality wines with that same easygoing sensibility and iconic yet simplistic look. A House pour for all!
Since that time, oh, how our House has expanded! From our humble Washington beginnings, we continue exploring the best ways to enjoy House Wine wherever life might take you from our classic and everyday bottles and boxes to our convenient and activity driven cans and pouches.
In 2021, House Wine became the first wine brand and product to win the Wine Enthusiast’s Social Visionary of the Year Award for its partnership with Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest LGBTQ+ civil rights organization. Conceived out of the brand’s founding belief that “Everyone’s Welcome in Our House,” House Wine pledges a portion of the proceeds from its rainbow products to the HRC which now include Rainbow Rosé Bubbles cans, bottles and pouches.
A true original with nearly two decades in the wine industry, award-winning winemaker Hal Landvoigt travels to wine regions around the world at least twice annually, sourcing the most compelling grape varieties, delving into nontraditional formats and cultivating a unique, unpretentious winemaking style.
