It’s no secret that we love our wines here at Seabright, and this time around we’re highlighting one of the more unique wine producers in Washington.
Sleight of Hand is unlike any other winery you’ve seen. Their old-school magic show-inspired labels should tell you right away that this winery has character, and if they could use one word to describe themselves, we’d bet they’d say “fun”. Founded in 2007 and owned by Jerry & Sandy Solomon and winemaker Trey Busch, Sleight of Hand has quickly established themselves as a winemaking force to be reckoned with.
Their most famous wine (for good reason) has to be their Psychedelic Syrah, which sports a dark purple hue and is best described as “funky,” with flavors of smoke, black licorice and olive tapenade. Other big sellers include “The Archimage” red blend, “Magician’s Assistant” rosé and “The Enchantress” chardonnay. Their grapes are sourced from 10 different vineyards across the Washington, ensuring each varietal offers tasters a new experience.
Unsurprisingly, the folks at Sleight of Hand are big music fans (the winery is named after a Pearl Jam song). They’ve partnered with local Seattle label Sub Pop Records and members of the Sleight of Hand wine club, the Wine Illusionist Society, receive digital downloads of the latest Sub Pop artist releases.
Tasting rooms are open in Walla Walla and in the SODO area of Seattle. If you give Sleight of Hand a try, we guarantee it’ll be an experience unlike any other winery.
