Our Story


Chelan Ridge Winery, a 100% Estate winery is run by Henry and Lynn Munneke. Lynn is a graduate of Washington State University’s Enology and Viticulture certificate programs and is Chelan Ridge Winery's official winemaker. Henry, a retired Northwest Airlines 747 Captain, is the assistant winemaker. When Henry is not in the tasting room, you might be able to spot him working in the vineyard from our tasting room balcony.


Henry and Lynn have two children, Michael and Michelle. Both make periodic trips back to Chelan. You might see them in the tasting room helping out from time to time.
