Together, we fulfilled one dream—it was an honor and privilege to serve our country as Air Force pilots for more than 23 years. Now we are thankful for the opportunity to pursue a second dream—to cultivate, create and share the wines we love.
Beginning with our first visit to Walla Walla in 2000, we fell in love with the place, the people and the phenomenal wine. Something in that visit sparked a dream for both of us—to someday live on a small Estate Winery where we could cultivate, create and share our own world class wine with family and friends. Over time it became clear that Walla Walla offered the perfect union of people and place to realize our dream and create the wines we love.
We invite you to join us on this journey and experience the Walla Walla lifestyle with us either in person or in a glass
The focus of our production is Estate Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, cultivated and created from the vineyard that surrounds our home. Kelly and I believe all great wines begin in the vineyard, with each site expressing unique varietal qualities based on the intersection of terroir, climate and farming practices.
Our goal is to make beautiful, balanced wines we love to drink and share. Our winemaking philosophy is simple, combine exceptional fruit with traditional winemaking techniques to create wines that are unique expressions of the place where they were grown.
We make our wines in small production lots using fruit from our Estate and other carefully selected vineyards whose growers share our passion for quality and stewardship of the land, including several of our closest neighbors along Mill Creek. Each wine is extremely limited in availability and handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail to showcase the quality of Walla Walla and Washington state fruit.
