Forgeron Cellars was born out of a quest to produce site-specific wines that illustrate the diversity found amongst Columbia Valley's different viticultural appellations. Our mission is to produce small-lot, artisan wines that accurately display each vineyard, varietal, and appellation. We believe that much of winemaking occurs in the vineyard and adhere to traditional techniques while utilizing the benefits of modern innovation. Forgeron Cellars is a true urban winery and is located in an old blacksmith building in Walla Walla, Washington. Long established, the winery continues to work with many of the region's top grape growers to ensure the production of some of the most appealing wines the valley has to offer.
Tasting Notes: A beautiful pale gold, this wine jumps out of the glass with aromas of apricot, pineapple, and Meyer lemon that meld into underripe peach and Key lime in the mouth. The long and scintillating finish leaves you wanting more. A delightful pairing to a spinach salad with roasted pears and caramelized walnuts.
