Vineyard Shot

Welcome to Forgeron Cellars

"The wines are outstanding across the board..." The Wine Advocate, June 2013


Discover unique wines inspired by Marie-Eve's French heritage! "Forgeron" is the French word for blacksmith as our winery/tasting room was founded in 2001 on the former site of a blacksmith shop. Buried in the foundation, for good luck, are hundreds of horseshoes unearthed during construction. In French, the word "Forgeron" refers to artisans who build with their hands combining experience with an extensive knowledge of their trade. This is the vision that Marie-Eve Gilla, Winemaker & Managing Partner brings to Forgeron Cellars, crafting complex, food-friendly wines from vineyards chosen for maturity and flavor profile.

Forgeron Cellars production is limited (around 6000 cases/year), allowing Marie-Eve to focus on quality by keeping each lot separate and allowing full expression of the wine's potential.
