This winery is named for a ship that once carried our family’s goods to market. Today, that part of our history, that ship’s name, is carried on with a new generation of our family company: Handcrafted wines from our home state. Cadaretta is a Walla Walla winery owned and operated by the Middleton family. The Middleton commitment to Washington State dates back to 1898, when we started the Anderson & Middleton forestry products company in Hoquiam, Washington.

We diversified into grapes in California 20 years ago. We’re now bringing that grape and wine experience back to Washington, and to our family roots. We’re planting wines in the Walla Walla Valley viticultural area, and we’ve named our wine “Cadaretta,” after one of our family’s early lumber schooners, used to ship timber from Washington to California in the 1920s and 1930s.

Our boutique Walla Walla winery combines our family’s agricultural history with an international style and flair. It joins our essential commitment to the land with our abiding passion for making the best from that land. Cadaretta is a blend of science and soul, tempered with tradition and balance.

Two of our wines are generally available. These are our Cadaretta SBS (Sauvignon Blanc / Semillon) and Cadaretta Cabernet Sauvignon. They can be found in fine wine shops and restaurants, and can usually be ordered directly from the winery, through our on-line shop or by telephone.

Other wines are made in very small quantities and are available exclusively to our offering list, to winery visitors, and to a handful of retailers and restaurateurs. These wines include Cadaretta Syrah, Cadaretta Chardonnay, Cadaretta Merlot, Cadaretta Springboard (our Bordeaux varietal blend), Cadaretta Windthrow (our Rhone varietal blend), and Cadaretta Highclimber (our Italian varietal selection).

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
