History

Ded reckoning wines started back in 2004 and is the brain child of Doug Charles and Will Parks, co-founders and owners of Compass Wines in Anacortes Washington. With their focus and expertise on boutique wineries of Washington, it seemed a natural fit to create a brand using high quality wines still in the barrel that weren’t incorporated into a wineries regular production. In the early days the wine was 100% a house brand sold through their retail store.  It was a way to provide their customers with a unique wine they wouldn’t find anywhere else, while at the same time providing them with a great value.
 
Doug and Will have worked with many of the top producers in Washington State to bring unique high quality wines to you. Some of these producers include, Quilceda Creek Vintners, Andrew Will Winery, Sheridan Vineyard, Woodinville Wine Cellars, Walla Walla Vintners and Bunchgrass Winery.  For a complete list, click here.
 
Fast forward many years and the Brand continues to grow.  With current distribution in Washington, Oregon and California, ded.reckoning wines can be found both at your local wine shop, or favorite restaurants.
 
Every year Doug and Will continue to seek out, and be sought, to make new exciting wines from great producers.  To stay up to date on what’s happening, sign up for our mailing list by clicking here.
