Two Acclaimed Wineries, One Celebrated Vinter
Novelty Hill and Januik are two independent wineries that share a destination tasting room and state-of-the-art winery under the direction of Mike Januik, one of Washington State’s most acclaimed winemakers.
After crushing his first three vintages in Walla Walla, Mike moved winemaking operations to Woodinville’s warehouse district in 2002 before putting down roots in 2007 at the stylish, modern winery Novelty Hill and Januik share today.
From the start, it has been a family-run operation. In the fall of 2009, Andrew Januik joined his dad in the cellar full-time. Today, he collaborates with Mike and winemaker Scott Moeller on all aspects of production in addition to crafting his own label, Andrew Januik Wines, launched in 2011.
