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.

Dusted Valley Tall Tales Syrah Bottle Preview
Dusted ValleyTall Tales Syrah

Named after Corey’s Grandpa Fred and his famous “tall tales,” this Estate grown and produced bottling of Syrah exemplifies what the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater is all about - earthy, gamey, aromatic and concentrated with a medium body. Whether it was Grandpa Fred’s heroics on the river as a young boy or the mighty bears he slayed in the big woods, his stories were always fascinating. Perhaps that’s what inspired Corey to become a winemaker -- every bottle of wine is a new story waiting to be told!

This is an amazing food wine that should be the star of setting your imagination on fire with pairing possibilities.

Our Rachis Syrah is the fraternal twin to our Tall Tales Syrah, and never can two brothers be so different. The bigger, bolder, more fruit forward flavors of this wine show the breadth of character that Syrah can have. This is another strong vineyard designate showing from Stone Tree Vineyard.

This is Dusted Valley’s top Cabernet Sauvignon and is crafted from some of the oldest and most sought after vineyards in Washington State, including Dionysus and our Southwind Estate Vineyards. This wine is dedicated to the loving memory of Chad’s Grandpa Vernon Rhodes. He was a truly amazing man, and this Cab takes its name from his miraculous chocolate chip cookie the “V.R. Special”.
