Accolades for Forgeron Cellars

Warm, Welcoming Walla Walla Valley

"You are just as likely to find [Marie-Eve] tromping through the vineyards as you are to find her sampling the barrels. The hard work shows in the bottle."

“Founded in 2001, Forgeron Cellars contracts with twelve top vineyards in the Yakima, Columbia and Walla Walla Valley, to include Pepper Bridge, Alder Ridge, Klipsun, Artz and Boushey Vineyards… The founding winemaker at Forgeron Cellars has quite a background. After earning her masters degree in enology and viticulture at the University of Dijon, Paris born Marie-Eve Gilla received hands-on training at local Burgundian wineries and vineyards… With her extensive training, and Argyle, Covey Run, Hogue and Gordon Brothers in her work portfolio, Gilla was recruited to become founding Winemaker & General Manager of Forgeron Cellars. She directed building of the new winery from top to bottom.
Gilla is a hands-on winemaker from the vineyard to the vat. You are just as likely to find her tromping through the vineyards as you are to find her sampling the barrels. The hard work shows in the bottle.”
