About us
Zimmel Unruh Cellars was established in 2012 by Robb Zimmel, a former Army medic, and Jon Unruh, a former U.S. Marine. 

Robb made wine for years as a hobby while serving his community as a flight paramedic and serving his country as an Army medic. After completing two tours in the Middle East, Robb decided to change careers to winemaking. Together, he and Jon made the dream a reality. 
In 2013, the first grapes were carefully selected and harvested by hand. Two years later, Robb and Jon released their first four wines: Chardonnay, Riesling, Malbec, and Merlot.
Meredith Metsker joined the team in spring 2016, bringing with her experience in marketing and journalism.
We are dedicated to serving you the highest quality wines Washington state has to offer. We truly hope you enjoy our creations. Join our Cerebella Founders Club for exclusive deals!
