Our Team

Our dedicated staff has the knowledge and passion to lead you through an amazing experience with us!  Husband and Wife duo David & Cindy Lawson started Covington Cellars in 2002 with the love of food and wine and wanting to share that with others. Our winemaker Morgan started with us in 2006 as David's assistant winemaker.  Quickly making his way to head winemaker, Morgan has been with us for 14 years, creating amazing wines that express single vineyards and varietals.  We have a fantastic cellar team led by Morgan, assistant winemaker Joe, and cellar manager Jarad.

David & Cindy Lawson Proprietors 

David is our Executive winemaker and proprietor with his wife, Cindy. David & Cindy are some of the original few to the WA wine scene in Woodinville, as we were the 19th established winery here. Their passion for wine and attention to detail has carried on into our wines today. 

Morgan Lee
Co-Owner / Winemaker

Morgan was born in Michigan and raised in Indiana and fell in love with the Northwest  at 17 years old on a family trip to Seattle.  He caught the passion for wine while attending Purdue University and has never looked back. His first Washington vintage was in 2006. Morgan resides in Kirkland, Washington with his wife Sally and their two kids, Oliver and Claire. The family dog, Alice, can be found at the winery with Morgan most days. 

Joseph Thornley Assistant Winemaker 


Joe is a die-hard fan of Washington wine and has called Woodinville home for most of his life. He found the love of wine from his parents while growing up in Woodinville and watching the local wine scene grow. He graduated from the WSU Viticulture & Enology program in 2012 and has been immersed in the Washington wine industry ever since. With time spent at Chateau St. Michelle in Woodinville and K Vintners in Georgetown, Joe couldn’t be more excited to join the Covington/Two Vintners team. He currently lives in Maltby with his girlfriend Rachel and dog Bobby Wagner.

Jarad Bivins
Cellar Manager


Growing up on 120 acres in upstate New York, Jarad has always had a connection to and appreciation for what we can produce from the land with care and thoughtfulness. Arriving in Seattle in 2011, Jarad fell headlong into the Washington State artisan winemaking community. He soon found himself hanging out in tasting rooms and volunteering his time helping local wineries when he could. After 5 years of volunteering (and realizing some of his happiest days were being busy in the cellar), Jarad made the leap into the industry full-time. When not at the winery, Jarad can usually be found hiking with Kira (his Lab/Pit mix) or whipping up some homemade bread. Jarad lives in Seattle with his wife Becky and daughter Ellie, who loves to help out dad at the winery when she can.
