Located in a historic building that dates back to 1912, Ink Cellars Georgetown has restored the integrity of the historic building to provide an authentic experience that respects the historic past and traditional viticulture and facilitates collaboration with Georgetown’s ongoing creative culture.
By preserving the historic aesthetics of the building and modernising the interior with a balance of refined elegance and rustic influences, Tinte Cellars has created a welcoming space that provides visitors with enough space and light to display changing works by local artists.
The structure of the industrial exhibition consists of large windows, mouldings and hardware details in red and black turtle, with a modern, curved design. The tasting room and event space are flooded with natural light, reclaimed wood, original accents and a palette of Northwestern colours.
The 1,600 square metre interior attracts visitors through the front door and opens through a high glass garage door to the 700 square metre rear patio, creating a perfect transition between interior and exterior space. A steel and iron fence opens the backyard on Nebraska Street. A well-equipped kitchen makes it possible to organize events on site for up to 100 guests.
The restoration work and the addition of salvaged wooden beams, concrete floors and elegant cabinets were skillfully orchestrated by Menter Byrne Architects, Krekow Jennings Inc. and Color & Design Studio LLC.
In the last century the town of Georgetown, now Tinte Cellars, had a general store, a craft shop, a butcher and a smokehouse. Recently it was a well-known scooter shop of which the iconic roof scooter has been preserved and restored and which takes its place again on the roof, albeit with a new paint job of which it is proud.
Ink Cellars Georgetown is a natural extension and part of our plan to weave our Great Wine for the Great Good philanthropic social mission into the fabric of the community, Spellman Gamble said. Our goal is for Ink Georgetown to be used by non-profit organizations for their missions and important work throughout Washington State, as well as by local patrons to get together and celebrate the best that life in this region has to offer.

About ink cellars
In June 2018, Tim Gamble and Teresa Spellman Gamble, daughters of the late Washington State Governor John Spellman, bought William Church and Quillin Hills Wineries in Woodinville and created the umbrella brand Tinte Cellars.
The community, volunteering and philanthropy have been the foundation of Tim and Teresa’s education and culture. When they founded Ink Cellars, the company had to reflect these values and their desire to leave the world better than they found.
Each year Tinte Cellars selects different charities to receive a portion of the wine sale (directly from the top). By 2020, five percent of all retail sales and ten percent of all wine club sales will go equally to Mary’s Place, Northwest Harvest and Seattle’s Children’s Mental Health Crisis Clinic. In addition, Ink invests in various programs and activities to enable its customers, employees and partners to increase their own positive impact on the world. As of October 2020, Ink’s philanthropic commitment to donations in cash and in kind to local non-profit organizations will exceed $347,000.
Tinte Cellars has marketed the following wines under the brand name Tinte Cellars : Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, William Church Red Blend, Bishops Blend, Quyenne Hills Red Blend and Rosé de Cunoise.
