Accolades for Forgeron Cellars

Sunset Wine Awards 2009 - Walla Walla Valley "Best Up-&-Coming Wine Region"

"In the past five years, more than 70 wineries have set up shop in the region wrapping the town of Walla Walla in the far southeast corner of Washington State, pushing the total to more than 100. Comfy inns have opened, chefs are turning local goods into yummy dishes, and Cab and Syrah have gone from good to great. You can walk to 21 tasting rooms from the center of town (we love Forgeron Cellars), or drive out through rolling hills to Northstar or Pepper Bridge.
The fireplace by the pond at Walla Walla's newest tasting room -- Waterbrook -- makes a great picnic setting; the pond at Waters and the lawn at Dunham are sweet spots too. Historic sleeps rule here: Walla Faces Inns' restored downtown location, the Inn at Abeja's turn-of-the-last-century farmstead, and the grand dame -- the Marcus Whitman Hotel, with the most rooms handy to downtown wine crawling. Don't leave town without trying Buty's Merlot/Cabernet Franc or Spring Valley Vineyard's "Uriah." If you can't find them, give the anonymous gas station (aka Walla Walla Wine Depot) just off U.S. 12 a try. We've even spotted Leonetti there.
