Steve & Bridgit Griessel

Managing Owners

As the managing owners, Steve and Bridgit are thrilled to be part of the next chapter of Betz Family Winery. They live at the winery and have 3 wonderful grown children.

They are dedicated to ensuring that the Betz Family is true to its heritage, culture, winemaking principles and patient growth, teaming with Bob who continues as the “patriarch” and consulting winemaker.

In 2002 Steve and Bridgit came to the US from South Africa, a country with a centuries-old winemaking heritage and today them and their kids are proud first generation Americans.

Their combined passion for wine led them to search the US west coast for a winery to call their own. They were exposed to the character and quality of Washington wine, and the rest is history.
