Swiftwater Cellars and The Watts Family


The concept of Swiftwater Cellars Winery and Restaurant (SWC) was crafted while Don and Lori Watts travelled through regions of Italy and France.  Their vision was to create the Northwest’s premiere destination winery.  

Nestled in the foothills of the cascade mountains, on the Suncadia Resort…Swiftwater Cellars was built. In 2010, the facility opened its doors to feature private dining spaces, a lounge centered around a massive rock fireplace, wedding/concert spaces, wine making facility and of course restaurant.

7 years later, the dream is still alive. This time, the Watts set their sights on Main Street in Old Bellevue. This beautiful street is filled with independent shops, restaurants and cafes. The city and location is alive with new energy and life for those young and old. Swiftwater Cellars on Main Street has combined our rustic roots of Cle Elum with a modern twist of the city. The new menu features Northwest ingredients and a comfort food flair.  

“When you walk into any of our locations, you are greeted by enthusiastic employees, award winning wines, and foods that keep you coming  back, “

– Don Watts
