Gard Vintners

Lawrence Estate Wines
Wine tasting, craft beer & food

Written By: Russell Colmore, Equity Committee Member

Great things have been happening at Gard Vintners, but they are going to get even better. Karen Bach, the tasting room manager here in Ellensburg, is working her magic and expanding Gard to include different wines, new menu items, and opening up an adjacent room to handle more customers. Karen is keeping with the mission of Gard Vintners which is to capture and bottle unique characteristics of the land that they farm, with 100% estate-grown sustainability in the heart of Washington’s Royal Slope. The winery was founded in 2006 by Josh and Lisa Lawrence who have farmed the royal slope vineyard for more than 55 years. Gard Vintners has three other locations in Walla Walla, Woodinville, and the Guard Public House in Royal City.

We are happy to announce our Downtown Superstars for the month of September, Abby and Sarah. You may know them from The Mule Cocktail Bar, but we know them from so much more! Sarah has been an absolute rock star volunteer on the Hometown Holidays Committee, Equity Committee, and recently, the HalloWeek Committee. Sarah will see something she wishes to have happen and plays an active role in bringing it to life. She is a true example of what it means to be a small business owner in a community like ours.
