Rotie is a winery based entirely on making traditional Rhone blends in Washington State. The idea is to combine old world wine-making techniques with the best Rhone varietals in the area. They are small winery dedicated to creating old world wines from new world grapes.
Winemaker, Sean Boyd - “These wines are not meant for grocery store shelves, but rather they need to be cellared as they are still evolving in bottle. I will never sterile filter these wines.”

“My idea is to make French-style Rhone Blends right here in Washington. To me this means less alcohol, less ripeness, and less oak. No manipulation. My goal is to make beautiful, graceful wines. I started this venture to make the wines I like to drink, and share them with others.”
- Winemaker, Sean Boyd
