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, 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 Woodinville, just 40 minutes north of Seattle.
When Forgeron opened in 2001, as the 23rd winery in Walla Walla, Washington, two things defined us: our decision to set down roots in downtown Walla Walla; and winemaker, Marie-Eve Gilla’s French roots, and viticulture and oenology training in Burgundy. It was serendipitous that our new home was on the site of a turn-of-the-Century blacksmith shop. Blacksmiths are serious artisans. Able to create such beauty from ferrous metal, Blacksmiths require great skill and patience, but also great passion. The name Forgeron [FOR-juh-ron] is the French term for “blacksmith”, skilled artisans who work with their hands in an age-old tradition.
