Waving Tree Winery-founded in 2001- is owned and operated by the Atkins Family.  Terrence Atkins (father), Kimiko Atkins (daughter), Takashi Atkins (son) and Janet Detering are all part of the LLC.  Each member of the family contributes to the success of the winery.  Kimiko designs the labels and manages the vineyards with her brother Takashi. Everyone is involved in the wine making process, while Janet Detering (Terrence's Sister) prepares the financial statements for tax season.  Evelyn-Terrence's wife- manages the Wine club and fills in wherever necessary.

 Waving Tree Vineyards & Winery are located just below the Stonehenge Memorial in the community of Maryhill, WA.  Winemaker Terrence Atkins and family make wine from estate-grown Italian and Rhone grape varietals. Terrence began his winemaking journey in 2001.  He studied the UC Davis oenology books and was an understudy for several winemakers before making his own wine.  Our vineyards are located in region primed for growing grapes of excellent shape and ripeness. This contributes to our ability to consistently produce award-winning wines. The quality of our wines will  continue under the tutelage of Eric Adams- formerly of Cascade Cliffs- as our new Winemaker and General Manager, as Terrence transitions into retirement.
