For years, owners and operators, Tony and Linda Haralson worked on bringing their dream of opening a winery to life. Developed from an interest in wine that was cultivated over almost a decade, the two worked together to develop premium wines that are the centerpiece of AntoLin Cellars.

Tony's interest in wine began at a young age, a result of from having family roots steeped in the French region of Burgundy. He began making wine for 9 years prior to venturing into commercial winemaking, simultaneously completing the certificate program in winemaking at The University of California at Davis in 2008.
Tony believes that great wines come from great fruit, so he is extremely attentive to their estate vineyard as well as other vineyards that produce fruit for AntoLin. Tony and Linda planted 5 acres of grapes in the upper Zillah hills in 2008. The vineyard consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Carmenère and Riesling.
When not attending to Antolin Cellars, Tony enjoys skiing, foraging for mushrooms, singing in musical organizations, riding motorcycles, learning other cultures, his dogs and spending quality time with his wife, Linda.
For Linda, the opportunity to share AntoLin wines with other wine lovers in the community is what makes the industry special. Partnering with her husband, Tony, to create AntoLin Cellars makes sharing their wines even more enjoyable, and she is often the smiling face alongside him at tasting events. For the winery, she handles crush and bottling plus all event planning and preparation.
According to Linda, “I want people to realize we aren’t doing it for money, we don’t intend to give up our day jobs. We want to have a fine boutique wine collection that people will enjoy.”
Linda primarily works as a nurse manager at the Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital. She is also on an allocation committee for United Way, allocating funds for high-risk children and families. Her other interests include Morel mushroom hunting with her husband, cooking gourmet cuisine for her family and friends and taking care of her three Siberian Huskies; Sooke, Keenu and Layla.
