Robison Ranch Cellars is located on a 3,000 acre working wheat ranch on the northern border of the city of Walla Walla, Washington.

Robison Ranch was acquired by Lester Robison at the beginning of the 20th century. Lester’s son Jim has lived and worked on the ranch his entire life. Jim’s wife Jane has been his partner on the ranch for over 60 years.

The Robisons followed the growth of the wine industry in Walla Walla with great interest. When Jim and Jane met the winemaker Brad Riordan and his wife Ruth, they found that they had similar interests and goals concerning wine making and formed a partnership.

2006 and 2007 were experimental production years. A variety of barrels, yeasts, and grapes were used during this trial period. Satisfied with the reviews of the resulting wine from a range of people including friends, family and wine & food industry professionals, Robison Ranch Cellars bonded in 2008.

"Robison Ranch Cellars partners, Brad Riordan and Jim Robison really know how to throw a party and indeed what a fine party it was at the ranch with wine, food and even door prizes! Brad is in charge of the wine and Jim is in charge of the food - and what a spread Jim produced. Smoked salmon, smoked pork tenderloin, proscuitto and selection of imported cheeses to name a few of the delicious noshes. It was a feast - and the wine from the Walla Walla Valley vineyards was indeed fit for a feast.

Winemaker: Brad Riordan

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

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

Rex Pickett, Sideways

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
