2014 Pilot Light Malbec


2014 Pilot Light
Red Mountain
15.4% Alc. by Vol.

Pilot Light Malbec is the second wine that I have made that has earned the name Pilot Light – the driver behind why I make wine. 100% Malbec from Kiona Vineyard on Red Mountain, it features a dark purple color, aromas of coffee and mocha, tastes of warm summer blackberries, slight tannins and a warm fruity finish. Truly exceptional fruit from Red Mountain and our first ever Malbec.

Join us on Thursday, April 12th for West Seattle Art Walk.

This quarter, Viscon Cellars is hosting the mixed media collages of Jessie Summa Russo from April through June. Jessie  studied art and illustration at Sarah Lawrence in New York and Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, but has called West Seattle home for the past twenty years. 

She has exhibited etchings, paintings, photography, charcoal drawings, and mixed media collages in several local galleries and cafes.

"My daylight basement functions as both art studio and band practice space, and I love it even though it is too hot in the summer and freezing in the winter. I enjoy doing commissions, and recently I have been building my own custom wood frames and designing the mats too, adding a new layer to the overall composition. I believe art is for everyone and bare walls make me sad.“

Stop by the tasting room on 4/12 from 5PM until 9PM to have a look and enjoy complimentary handmade pasta and homemade cake with some Viscon Cellars wines

Wine & Chocolate Pairing Returns to Viscon Cellars

Viscon Cellars Wines and Intrigue Chocolate Co. Present:

Wine & Chocolate Pairing


Last February, we partnered with Intrigue Chocolate in Pioneer Square to pair three of our wines with three of their chocolate truffles, and it was such a sumptuous success, we had to repeat it. We have worked closely with Intrigue to pair their delightful handcrafted truffles with three of our award winning wines.

Join us at the Viscon Cellars Tasting Room
Friday 2/2
Saturday 2/3
Friday 2/9
Saturday 2/10

This year we will also be selling the truffle bars, mini-truffle sets and assorted chocolate bars, all paired with three of our wines. Buy local for Valentine's Day!



"Lightly dusted with cocoa, rich flavors unfold as the truffle melts, revealing the natural complexities of the chocolate.  Take your time.  Breathe.  Let the chocolate tell its story.

Our truffles pair well with wine, coffee, tea, chai, craft beer, sake, fine liquors and liqueurs.  For a luscious combination, pair them by matching characteristics that are alike.  For an exciting combination, pair opposite characteristics. And to get the most from the experience, remember: Sip, Sip, Melt, Sip."

In Our Gallery: Greta Musland

Join us Thursday, January 10th for West Seattle Art Walk.

Viscon Cellars is hosting the artwork of Greta Musland from January through March. 

"Appreciating both abstraction and figuratism, I often find myself combining both in a single painting as well as incorporating graphite within the confines of the oil painting or oil bar with acrylics.  I enjoy experiencing the contrast of paint's fluidity and the precision of drawing and often find them quite compatible."

Stop by on Thursday to browse Greta's mixed media pieces and sample some Viscon Cellars wines.


In Our Gallery: Encaustic by Sandy Simpson

Thursday, November 9 is West Seattle Art Walk.

Viscon Cellars is pleased to present the latest artwork of Sandy Simpson, who has moved from watercolors to encaustics. She shared with us a few words about this transition:

"I LOVE the transparency; it’s who I am. This new found medium has taken me through gardens and vineyards, music and travel. Layers upon layers of wax have found a home in my heart."

Stop by on Thursday for a look at Sandy's newest passion and a taste of the latest and greatest Viscon Cellars wines.

Sandy's art will be hanging through December, so if you can't make this Art Walk, put December 14th on your calendar.

Hope to see some of you for Art Walk, it's always a good time.
