The definition of 'Solemn' is formal and dignified, characterized by deep sincerity. This is exactly what Justin and Brianne Basel set out to represent when forming Solemn Cellars. They wanted the focus to be on the quality and not the quantity of wine. they wanted their passion and respect of the industry to show in each bottle. they wanted to share not just their wines but the experience that comes with it. 

This is experience starts in the Basel families estate vineyard, Pheasant Run. Each lot is broken down by block to show off the unique growing conditions through out the 20 acre vineyard. Planted in the mid 90's this vineyard is now well established at 20+ years old.

​At 12 years of age this vineyard is where owner and winemaker Justin Basel first developed his passion and respect for the Walla Walla wine industry. After talking about it for over 10 years this passion and respect come forefront with the opening of Solemn Cellars.

After studying & working in 9 winemaking regions in 4 countries, winemaker Marc Dillon Leahy proudly shares wines of balance, intention & place with you.

These wines are shaped by my formative experiences working and studying in France, Spain and Portugal as well as all of my generous mentors in Washington & Napa. Having the good fortune to work with hedonists, old-world craftsmen & women, academics, and enological technicians provides me with the breadth of experience needed to forge an informed and unique winemaking perspective.

Wine constantly evolves and is endlessly complex. My role is to guide the development from vineyard to bottle. The key to artful winemaking is thoughtfully using modern tools and methods alongside the ancient techniques that honor the long tradition of hand-crafting wine. Skillful use of these principles shape a wine into the most complete and transparent expression of itself.
