Winemaking is half science and half intuition. Brad Sherman, the wine maker has the science background and is inquisitive by nature.  It is this combination that has allowed Brad to create award winning wines. 

The jump from amateur to professional status came when Brad’s local wine shop asked if he would create a Sangiovese for them under their own label.  So before he made his first wines, he already had a sale. 

Brad started the winery as many do, working with another winery and going the virtual route to sell with a distributors license.   This developed until a spot in the “Wine Warehouse District” in Woodinville opened up, and he joined three other wine makers in renting a place.  

The final story was when Michael Florentino Cellars moved into its new location in February of 2012.  This spot has its own cooled barrel room, a spacious tasting room and a separate winery space for fermenting, blending and bottling the wines.  

Michael Florentino Cellars currently produces just over a 1000 cases of wine and limits its growth to around 2000 cases.  This will allow the winery to focus on the wines and continue to experiment with the wonderful grapes Washington State!
