Housed in a historic building dating back to 1912, Tinte Cellars Georgetown restored the landmark structure’s integrity to deliver an authentic experience that respects the storied past and traditional winemaking and facilitates collaboration with the robust Georgetown creative culture.
By maintaining the historical exterior aesthetic and bones of the building and updating the interior with a balance of refined elegance and rustic influences, Tinte Cellars has created a welcoming space to invite visitors and has provided ample space and lighting to feature rotating works of local artists.
The industrial-exposed structure features large pane windows, barn red and black shiplap siding, and hardware details with a modern bent. The tasting room and event venue are flooded with natural light, reclaimed timber, original accents, and a Northwest color palette.
Designed for flexibility to accommodate comfortable, regular wine tastings and special functions, the 1600 square foot interior space draws guests through the front door and out onto the 700 square foot back patio through a tall glass garage door creating a seamless transition from the indoors to the outdoors. Steel and iron gates open the rear patio area to Nebraska Street. A well-appointed catering kitchen will help facilitate events of up to 100 guests on-site.
Restoration work and the addition of reclaimed timber beams, concrete floors, and sleek cabinetry were skillfully orchestrated by Menter Byrne Architects, Krekow Jennings Inc., and Color & Design Studio LLC.
Over the last century, the now revitalized Tinte Cellars Georgetown was previously home to a general store, a folk art shop, and a butchery and smokehouse. It was recently a notable scooter sales and service shop whose iconic rooftop scooter has been saved, restored, and has once again assumed its rooftop perch, albeit with a proud new paint job.
“Tinte Cellars Georgetown is a natural extension and part of our plan to weave our philanthropic social mission of ‘Great Wine for the Greater Good’ into the fabric of the community,” said Spellman Gamble. “Our goal is for Tinte Georgetown to be used by nonprofits to further their missions and the important work they do throughout Washington State and also by local patrons to come together and celebrate the best things life in the area has to offer.”

About Tinte Cellars
In June of 2018, co-owners and husband and wife team, Tim Gamble and Teresa Spellman Gamble, daughter of the late Washington State Governor John Spellman, purchased Woodinville’s William Church and Cuillin Hills wineries creating the umbrella brand, Tinte Cellars.
Community, volunteerism, and philanthropy formed the foundation of Tim and Teresa’s upbringings; their culture. When they established Tinte Cellars, the business needed to reflect those values and their desire to leave the world better than they found it.
Each year, Tinte Cellars selects a few nonprofit organizations to receive a portion of all wine sales (right off the top). In 2020, five percent of all retail sales and 10% of all wine club sales will be split equally between Mary’s Place, Northwest Harvest, and Seattle Children’s Behavioral Health Crisis Care Clinic. In addition, Tinte invests in a wide range of programs and activities to enable its customers, employees, and partners to amplify their own positive impact on the world. In October 2020, Tinte’s philanthropic commitment of cash and in-kind donations to local nonprofits exceeded $347,000.
Tinte Cellars has released the following wines under the Tinte Cellars label: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, William Church Red Blend, Bishops Blend, Cuillin Hills Red Blend, and Rosé of Counoise.
