Great wine begins on the vine; but is finished under the direction of a skilled and experienced winemaker. Anke Freimuth-Wildman, our winemaker, selects only the highest quality fruit to be used in our wine. Anke, a native German, grew up in the Mosel Valley, famous for its world class Riesling wines. Exposure at an early age to wine-growing and winemaking led her to study viticulture and enology at the prestigious Geisenheim Institute on the Rhein River. She has crafted wines in Germany, Switzerland, and since 1990 in Washington State.

After growing wine grapes for 20+ years we decided to open our own winery. Steppe Cellars opened in 2005. It is a partnership between two sisters and their husbands.

It is a venture that would not have been possible without the help and support of our friends and family. Each partner also brings diverse experience and perspectives to this growing family business.

Steppe Cellars is named after the shrub steppe environment that surrounds us. We feel this is a very interesting and complex ecosystem that we enjoy learning about and sharing with others. Our farms border the shrub steppe. When visiting Steppe Cellars we hope that you will take the time to pick cherries when they are in season, sample some of the fresh apples and to learn a bit about the shrub steppe.

Steppe Cellars is a small winery in the Yakima Valley of Washington State. We've been farming here for years and would love to share our experiences with you. Please don't hesitate to come by, taste some wine, bring a picnic to enjoy in our cherry orchard and learn about Central Washington's shrub steppe environment.

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.

  Best Books of the Year

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
