Deana & Dan Ferris
Dan & Deana Ferris are the proprietors of Mill Lane Winery. We've lived in Tenino since 2010, when we relocated here from eastern Washington. Dan is retired Air Force and loves to chat about the good old days! Deana has background in sales, customer service and procurement during the course of her private sector and state employment. We have a great partnership – Dan is the winemaker and Deana is the Wino! :)
ABOUT THE WINERY
We began making wine as a hobby several years ago, starting with simple recipes. As time has gone by, we began experimenting with different fruits, methods, oaking and spices and discovered we have a knack and a passion for creating wonderful wines. After friends and family urged us to think about selling it, we began the process of State and Federal approvals, which was completed in 2012. We specialize in handcrafting fruit wines, with the fruit harvested from right here in Washington State (except for the pineapple of course!). Our goal for you, as you experience our wines, is to give you the feeling that you're biting into a fresh, delicious piece of fruit. We also have a robust line of red and white wines for those who prefer grape wines. Dan is a 40+ year basketball referee, so these wines are named with basketball terms, such as Breakaway, Two Handed Flush and In Your Face, Buzzer Beater, 3-Pointer and Swish, just to name a few. We invite you to stop into the tasting room and enjoy a few relaxing moments to enjoy what we have to offer and hopefully leave with some excellent wine to share with your loved ones.
