About Us



Powers Winery, founded by visionary farmer Bill Powers, traces its roots back to his idyllic boyhood in Oklahoma. Drawn to the breathtaking farm country of Eastern Washington in the 1950s, Bill’s journey eventually led him to establish our esteemed estate, Badger Mountain Vineyard, in 1982.

Since our inaugural release of Powers wines in 1992, our winery has consistently upheld a commitment to crafting wines that are not only concentrated, structured, and age-worthy but also embody principles of environmental, community, and fiscal sustainability.

Bill Powers, a luminary in the field, earned the admiration of his peers at the Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers (WAWGG). In 1996, he was named Washington Wine Grape Grower of the Year for his remarkable recovery of the vineyard following a devastating freeze. In 2007, he was bestowed with a Lifetime Achievement Award, a recognition only granted three times since the organization’s inception in 1983. The Walter Clore Center honored him in 2010 as a “Legend of Washington Wine,” inducting him into the Hall of Fame. Although the wine industry lost a pioneer when Bill passed away in September 2014, his legacy lives on through the winery.

Today, Bill’s legacy is carried forward by our dynamic winemaking team and enduring grower partnerships. These collaborations allow us to continually showcase the diverse microclimates and distinctive vineyards of Washington State. Our Reserve selections, featuring bottlings from individual vineyard sites, underscore the variations between growing regions across the state. Every Powers wine reflects a profound dedication, wealth of experience, and unwavering integrity, making them truly worthy of carrying the Powers name.
