Maxx McGoff

Tasting Room Manager Woodinville


Maxx, is no stranger to the wine industry. He first fell in love with wine and winemaking at the age of 14 after watching the feature film “Sideways.” Born on the east coast, and raised in Woodinville, Maxx took a closer look at the wine industry for a career development project where he solidified his interest in the field. After graduating high school he attended Washington State University to pursue a degree in winemaking. Following his sophomore year he began an internship with an Eastern Washington winery and then began working full-time while finishing his degree.

I think what sets Basel Cellars apart is that the wine is exceptional and I am really looking forward to sharing the wines with our guests and helping to expand our footprint in Woodinville.

Beginning in 2015 Maxx lived in Lodi, California and managed the lab at Klinker Brick Winery where he became a seasoned veteran on the technical aspect of winemaking. In 2018 he relocated back to the Woodinville area where he’s excited to join our team as the Woodinville Tasting Room manager. Maxx is a social person who loves to make connections with new people and share his passion for wine with them. Be sure to stop in and visit Maxx and the team in Woodinville soon.
