2001 Was our first vintage. We were the 23rd winery to open it's doors in Walla Walla.
All of our shelf talkers, tech sheets and bottleshots are available directly from each wine page or in the "Download Support Materials" section below.
Our full-production winery and tasting room are located in downtown Walla Walla (3rd Ave & Birch Street), approximately 4-5 hours from Seattle in Washington State. If you can't make it to Walla Walla, we also have a fun tasting room and event space in the heart of Woodinville wine country, just a short distance NorthEast of Seattle
Established in 2001, Forgeron’s name [FOR-juh-ron], the French word for ‘BlackSmith’, was established after taking up residency in the original forge of downtown Walla Walla. Throughout the years, 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. 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. Our 15+ year history of 90+ point reviews speaks to the consistency of our wines at Forgeron Cellars and will be carried through the years by young Winemaker, Cody Janett, age 26.
