Shaped by Seven Generations, Born From Within the Heart of the Walla Walla Valley

Shaped by seven generations, born from whithin the heart of the Walla Walla Valley

 

As second generaton winemakers, we were inspired by our father, Cliff Kontos of Fort Walla Walla Cellars.  We began dreaming of this journey while on crush pads throughout the Walla Walla Valley, amongst our wheat fields overlooking the Touchet River, and relaxing in the hot tub sampling Walla Walla's finest.  

What were initially star gazing dreams, quickly took shape over the last few years as we could no longer ignore the opportunities that presented themselves.
