Steve and JoMarie Hansen



Steve and JoMarie Hansen live in Vancouver, WA. Partners since 2004, they became majority owners with Steve as the managing partner in 2011.

We like nothing better than sharing the special beauty and fine wines here at Basel with others. Please come visit and experience it for yourselves. We look forward to meeting you and calling you friends.

After a career as a construction executive where Steve managed major bridge and highway projects throughout the country they are happy to be at Basel Cellars where they can combine their creative talents and business expertise with a passion for good wine.

“Our first view of Basel Cellars was a December day when the vineyards and resort were covered in a layer of fresh white snow. We were awestruck by the beauty and then discovered that the wines were as delicious as the grounds were beautiful . We happily became partners. Fast forward to 2015 and many seasons later. We are still inspired by the beauty of the area and intrigued by the process of working together with our team to grow grapes and create exceptional wines from this rich land.

“We are excited to introduce you to our terrific staff and share our delicious wines and spectacular scenery with you. Our goal is to give all of our visitors a memorable wine experience, whether they are opening a bottle of our wine in their own home, visiting for an afternoon or spending the night at the estate.”
