The story behind 4 Whistles.

We derive our name from the standard 4 whistle pattern that all trains must use when going over a crossing.  Being a short distance away from a railroad crossing we hear it frequently. We hope you grow as fond of it as we have.

We aim to make all our wines with as little input and interference as possible, we believe this helps the wine and the grapes it came from speak to every person in a unique way. Many of our wines are fermented using only native yeast and bacteria found on the grape skins. We believe this highlights each grape varietals unique character and requires less inputs.

Our roots: How it all started.

A crazy Washington wheat farmer and an East Coast finance wizard were dreaming of investment ideas. One thing led to another, and a few glasses of Washington’s finest wine later, 4 Whistles Winery began.

Great wine starts with great grapes.

We planted our first estate-grown grapes in the spring of 2017. This would be the start of something that none of us could have imagined at the time. It's been trial and error throughout the whole process, but we believe that constant improvement is the only way forward. We hope you appreciate the product we offer and the work we put in from grape to glass.

Welcome to
Stone Pillars Vineyard.

Our sunny Eltopia estate was purchased as the family’s first investment into the Washington State agricultural industry.  Built on the site of former irrigated farmland, Stone Pillars Vineyard provides unique nutrition to the vines and the arid climate of the region help provide the vines with the heat and sunlight they love.

The family behind 4 Whistles.

Phil Dailey

Phil Dailey

Founder/CEO and occasional cellar rat, Phil Dailey has been a wine enthusiast for many years. After growing up in the Palouse Country of Washington state, he graduated from WSU with a marketing degree. He then spent 30 plus years working for and then retiring from the federal government. When the opportunity to invest and be a part of the industry presented itself in 2014 he couldn’t resist.

Jane Dailey

Jane Dailey

Founder/Production Manager and vine manicurist, Jane has a passion for perfection and craft, lending her skills to managing operation in the cellar and vineyards. After many years of working for the federal government Jane wanted to do something that she felt more passionate about. When she pitched her husband Phil the idea about starting a winery it was immediately love and 4 Whistles was born soon after.

Samuel Dailey

Samuel Dailey

Winemaker/Viticulturist Samuel is the son of founders Jane and Phil. Samuel wanted to get his hands dirty in an industry that was equal parts science and art, botany and chemistry. Wine-making requires all these skills and when the opportunity to attend WSU and its burgeoning wine program came along, he jumped right into the growing industry. Samuel graduated from WSU in Viticulture and Enology in 2018 bringing all of his education, vital skills and experiences to 4 Whistles.
