At Forgeron, we are driven by what’s happening in the vineyards and work to find the best sites for each of our wines; then, working in small-lots, we put our skills to work with restraint, to respect the fruit's identity through winemaking. Because great winemaking begins in the vineyard, we partner with the best, sustainable-focused growers and sites in the AVA's of Eastern Washington's vast Columbia Valley.
Forgeron, the French word for "Blacksmith", offers tasting and tours of our full production winery (est. 2001) in downtown Walla Walla where Blacksmiths once skillfully and by hand, crafted iron into art. Our Woodinville Tasting Room opened in 2013 to offer our members and friends more opportunities to enjoy Forgeron wines closer to Seattle.
Open to the public Thursday - Monday, we recommend elevating your tasting by booking an Experience.
Established in 2001, we've worked side-by-side Eastern Washington's best growers, who are focused on sustainability, in a quest to produce site-specific wines that illustrate the diversity found amongst Columbia Valley’s different appellations.
Our 15+ year history of 90+ point reviews speaks to the consistency of our wines at Forgeron Cellars.
Our diverse portfolio explores the best of what Eastern Washington terroir has to offer.
Complex, age-worthy wines that express Washington’s full potential. We are motivated by our next trip into the vineyards or finding the next, best location for a particular variety, and then putting our skills to work with restraint, to respect the fruit’s identity through winemaking.
