From our vineyards and cellars to our tasting room and sales, Gilbert Cellars is a story of family collaboration. Three generations of Gilberts are committed to making the winery a success through shared vision, personal investment, and a passion for producing great wine from our family's vineyards.
The Gilbert Family has been in the Yakima Valley since 1897, when Horace Mark Gilbert moved his family from Geneseo, Illinois and started farming apples and other produce. Their homeplace is now owned by the museum, and a webpage is dedicated to it here. The family business has passed down from father to son since then and Gilbert Orchards is owned and operated by brothers Curtiss and Cragg Gilbert today.
In a speech to the Washington State Horticultural Association in 1908, H.M. Gilbert said, “Let us follow the invitation of our great mountains which lift our eyes and inspire us to better things.”
With that quote in mind we have developed Gilbert Cellars; where tradition meets innovation, where home meets exploration, where our past meets our future, where our mountains meet our valley.In the wine that is created under these contrasting and fascinating circumstances are the spirited & genuine moments shared with the family and friends that you love.
