Accolades for Forgeron Cellars

'Forgeron Cellars Wines Prove Unforgettable' Says Bellingham Writer

"Her winemaking style...strikes a balance between the classic reserved qualities of France's Burgundy region...& the varied growing regions of more intensely flavored grapes in Eastern Washington..."

"Ten years ago, managing partner and founding winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla established Forgeron Cellars in Walla Walla. At the time, there were just over 30 licensed wineries in the area. Today, the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance reports there are close to 125.

I'm not exactly sure when I first met Marie-Eve. It was probably at a wine festival or other wine-related event, or more likely at the winery tasting room which, incidentally, is conveniently located near downtown Walla Walla and is open from 11a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

I've always admired her winemaking style, which strikes a balance between the classic, reserved qualities of France's Burgundy region (where she earned her degree and training) and the varied growing regions of more intensely flavored grapes in Eastern Washington, which she uses to make her wines."
