David and Cindy Lawson, Proprietors
Long before David and Cindy Lawson founded Covington Cellars, they shared a passion for wine, food and travel. David was a home winemaker and Cindy a home cook. Then they took their interests to the next level– David studied Enology at UC Davis, and Cindy studied the culinary arts and the art of wine and food pairing at various culinary schools around the country. Today the couple shares their passions with other enthusiasts through their wine and supper club, wine blending workshops and of course the wine club. David and Cindy share their time between Covington and Woodinville and share their home with their three dogs Starr, Chance & Mia.

Morgan is a graduate of Purdue University. When he’s not making wine, he enjoys creating mosaic art pieces, traveling, and all the outdoor activities that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Morgan currently resides in Kirkland with his wife Sally, his son Oliver, and his black lab named Lola.
