A brief history
Abeja is a beautifully restored, century-old farmstead set in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Surrounded by 38-acres of creeks, gardens, and vineyards, the estate is home to the award-winning Abeja winery and tasting room. Acclaimed winemakers Dan Wampfler and Amy Alvarez-Wampfler craft Walla Walla wines from the estate’s Heather Hill and Mill Creek Vineyards, as well a Columbia Valley Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and a Washington State Chardonnay. Abeja List members enjoy full access to the winery's estate, reserve and Beekeeper's collections. The List is closed at this time due to the limited availability of the wines, however, interest parties are invited to join the Wait List .
Adjacent to the winery is The Inn at Abeja providing year-round lodging to guests seeking a restorative, one-of-a-kind wine country experience. The property’s original outbuildings have been meticulously restored with an emphasis on craftsmanship to welcome overnight guests in a unique mix of private guest cottages, rooms and suites. With an emphasis on impeccable hospitality, Abeja invites guests to marvel in the property’s rich history while enjoying modern comforts and world-class wines that define an unforgettable wine country retreat.
The name Abeja (pronounced “ah-BAY-ha”) is Spanish for bee. It was chosen to honor a deep-rooted respect for the environment and as a reminder of the importance of working together in community.
