Accolades for Forgeron Cellars

Washington Wine Report: Forgeron Cellars

"...Gilla is one of the best winemakers in Walla Walla Valley...Forgeron Cellars 2005 Zinfandel also came in 2nd in our 2008 Reader Survey."

Sean P. Sullivan, WA Wine Report, July 2009

Marie-Eve Gilla continues to impress at Forgeron. Her 2004 Boushey Vineyard Syrah was my top wine at Uncorked’s Syrah event in April. This time around it was the 2004 Champoux Vineyard Cabernet that grabbed my attention, leading my friend Lindy to interrupt a conversation we were having with people from the winery to exclaim “Oh my God!” After a minute more of conversation I sampled the wine and also said “Oh my God! You weren’t kidding!” This is a big, bold wine that demands attention. Gilla’s wines display both a feminine and a French touch.  The results speak for themselves and demonstrate why Gilla is one of the best winemakers in Walla Walla Valley. NB: Forgeron Cellars 2005 Zinfandel also came in second in our 2008 Reader Survey.
