Our History

Powers Winery, was founded by Bill Powers. Bill was drawn from his boyhood in​ Oklahoma to the region’s spectacular farm country in the 1950’s, and after years of farming multiple crops, he planted our estate, Badger Mountain Vineyard, in 1982.

From our inaugural release of Powers wines in 1992, Powers winery has remained committed to crafting concentrated, structured, and age-worthy wines, while practicing and innovating environmental, community, and fiscal sustainability.

Powers wines are crafted by long-time winemaker Jose Mendoza to showcase Washington State’s diverse microclimates and distinctive vineyards. Deeply rooted in long term relationships with premium Columbia Valley growers, Powers Winery sources a variety of the highest quality fruit to consistently produce compelling wines of uncommon depth and complexity. Our Reserve selections showcase bottlings from individual vineyard sites and highlight differences between growing regions throughout the State. All Powers wines reflect a devotion, experience and integrity that result in products worthy to carry the family name.

"If you can do something good, you should do it." - The late Bill Powers

“I am the luckiest guy in the world because I get up, walk out the door and get to do what I love everyday.”
-Bill Powers
