A brief history
This year Dusted Valley proudly celebrates their 18th anniversary of growing and crafting spectacular Washington State wine in Walla Walla. With strong roots in agriculture, brother-in-laws Chad Johnson’s and Corey Braunel’s wine growing philosophies start in the vineyard with sustainable practices, low (or modest) yields and minimalistic winemaking. The resulting wines offer a sense of place and showcase their estate vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley and other premier vineyards throughout the state. As part of their distinctive oak program, Dusted Valley works with barrels crafted from the finest French oak, along with oak sourced from the area near the 45th parallel of Wisconsin where they were born and raised. At roughly a 5,000 case operation, offerings include Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Chardonnay, along with Bordeaux and Rhone Style blends. Dusted Valley proudly shares “the good life” with friends and fans at their two tasting rooms– one at the foot of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla and one near Seattle in the heart of Woodinville, Washington.
