More About Us

EFESTĒ, pronounced F-S-T, is an acronym for the winery’s founders: Daniel and Helen Ferrelli, Patrick Smith, and Kevin and Angela Taylor. All share a passion for finely crafted wine and the art of vinification.

The idea for EFESTĒ emerged one night over dinner and a discussion of making a family label to enjoy with friends, family, and anyone else who would appreciate a glass of wine, a meal, and a good laugh.

In the beginning Chris Upchurch came on as consulting winemaker and helped select winemaker Brennon Leighton, a UC Davis graduate with years of Washington winemaking experience, to oversee production. EFESTĒ became a melting pot of ideas, ambition, and talent. Recently, Peter Devison joined the team as winemaker.

Today EFESTĒ offers a premium selection of wines we are proud to call our own. And we still take the time to gather with friends and family over a meal and a bottle of wine.

Donation Requests

We at EFESTĒ support a cause close to our heart, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). EFESTĒ supports the LLS through our Rockin’ Sips Event, Tough Guy Merlot and various LLS events throughout the city. We are a small case production winery, so we need to allocate to charity as modestly as possible. We hope someday to give to a broader base of charitable organizations. We are very proud to be a part of one of the most giving communities in the nation! For more information contact
