TruthTeller WineryVerified Organization

A brief history

When we found out our Swiss last name means "village idiot" we did a dance, told a joke and decided it was time to start a winery.

When we learned the translation of our name may be closer to “jester” – historically an entertainer to the king who uses humor to tell the truth – we were even more delighted. We honor the concept of truth to power, and welcome everyone who shares our passion for laughter, stories, quirky humor, pleasurable conversation and discovering their own truth along the way.

Our family believes wine is an experience distinctively unique to the truth within each and every one of us. We all experience the flavors, the aromas and the memories in our own personal ways. From Woodinville to Walla Walla we invite you to laugh, share stories and discover your own wine truths with us.

The truth is between you and the wine.

Meet The Team

  • Chris Loeliger

    After a career that spanned the Peace Corps, engineering roles in firms like Boeing and Hughes Defense, and residential real estate in Seattle, Chris found his passion in winemaking. Wine spoke to both his science mind and his desire to create things. He took classes at Northwest Wine Academy and did volunteer work for years with several wineries in the Woodinville area. After years of making his own homemade wines in the garage, he and his wife launched TruthTeller Winery in 2014.

  • Keith Whisenhunt

    Keith, the older son of Chris and Dawn Loeliger, explored careers as diverse as music technology and finance. From his early 20’s, he loved homebrewing and winemaking and had always dreamed of working in the industry. When his parents decided to pursue their crazy winery dream, Keith worked with them as a volunteer on weekends as much as he could. He also took classes at Northwest Wine Academy. In 2017, he joined the TruthTeller team as a full-time winemaker and business partner. Chris and Keith both work on all wine production, but TruthTeller’s second label, The Miscreant Project, is where Keith stretches his wine design muscles and finds expression for his creative humor.
