Walla Walla Vintners, located in Walla Walla Washington state is a limited-production winery, dedicated to making premium red wines - Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Sangiovese, Syrah and specially crafted Bordeaux blends. We blend small amounts of Carmenere, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Syrah to enrich the complexity of our wines. We specialize in making wines from sustainable vineyards in Washington State especially vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley. Our award winning wines receive excellent reviews from judges and leading wine journals. We like to host visitors to our winery for wine tastings and sales on Saturdays or by appointment.

As winemakers we made homecrafted wines for over ten years before we considered making commercial wines. This was all done in our backyard using borrowed, makeshift equipment and for a while a small apple press. Muscle and Phillip Wagner's wine making books were our greatest assets. Although we lacked experience, we had passion for tasting and creating quality wines and cooking food. We now have a wood fired oven at the winery --- the roasted chicken and pizzas are hits.
Gordon had visited his family in Calabria in Southern Italy and sampled their homemade wines. He returned from the trip with a desire to make homemade wines. He and Myles began the adventure.

Our wine improved. We made around 200 gallons of finished wine a year for home consumption and for friends. During the early days, our friends politely took the wines we gave them. Some tasted bad and some blew up in wine racks. However, they stuck with us, and as our wines got better they began to look forward to the holidays when we gave wine as gifts. They also encouraged us to consider making commercial wines.

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
