Welcome to Whitman Cellars, crafters of traditional Bordeaux and Rhone style wines of balance and expression of terroir. Whitman is currently producing Viognier, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, a port, and three proprietary blends called "Narcissa", "Killer Cab", and "Del Rio Red".

Fruit is sourced from 19 different vineyard blocks in the Walla Walla and Red Mountain appellations and kept in separate barrel lots until blending trials are complete. These appellations offer a wide range of flavor profiles which we use to blend the portrait of a finished wine - like colors to paint a picture.
We are truly a boutique winery with a production level at approximately 5,000 cases per year. Explore our web site (you can order wine here too). Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Whitman Cellars is proud to bring to you a glossary of wine terms that may be helpful as you read through this site, as well as articles on wine-related topics. If you are new to wines, the "See, Smell and Taste" and the "How to Order Wines" sections will be very helpful.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
