A brief history

Wine became a passion of mine at a young age. Having grown up in Washington State, it was fitting that wines from the Columbia Valley were my favorite of all. In 2005, less than two years removed from college, I founded Revelry Vintners winery to share the wines that I loved with others. I started with the goal of producing three wines from Washington that were just as good or better than those being offered at much higher prices. Since that time, we have pioneered new formats, expanded the selection of wines we offer, and improved quality tirelessly. Through all of this that simple goal remains - to provide you with some of the finest wines you can buy, whether it costs fifteen bucks or fifty.

Revelry Vintners today offers a complete lineup of wines, each a pure representation of their origins in the Columbia Valley - from our single-vineyard AERIALS™ Series of wines, to the Columbia Valley Collection where it all began. We craft our wines by the skilled hands of a chosen few in our cellars in Walla Walla Washington, relying on time tested techniques passed down to us from history, in unison with modern technology and few tricks of our own learned over time. Individually our wines are each very distinct, yet they all share the common qualities of balance, moderate structure, and dynamic flavor. This is the Revelry Vintners style.


True to our beginnings, we work everyday to ensure that each new vintage we craft is better than the last, and that every bottle that bears the Revelry brand is one that you can trust to be excellent. We truly hope you enjoy our wines, and welcome you to come experience Revelry first hand in our tasting room in the Walla Walla Valley.

Revelry Vintners Range Grenache Blanc Bottle Preview
Revelry VintnersRange Grenache Blanc

Grenache Blanc is a crisp, high acid wine of incredible purity, grown high in the hills toward the southern reaches of the Columbia Valley. For the past five years we have searched our state high and low for this grape - the white version of the Grenache grape that we love so much. For five years we came up empty handed. Late in the fall of 2018 we heard rumor of a new planting of Grenache Blanc in the lower Yakima Valley. Art den Hoed and his son John, who also grow Cabernet Franc for our Rosé had planted a two-acre parcel as an experiment. We struck gold! Often used in the Rhone valley of France in white blends, Grenache Blanc lends itself to many different winemaking styles. The grape offers wonderful freshness, acidity, and the most mind-bending array of flavors. We love a bit of tension in our white wines where there is competition between the vibrance of acidity and the complexity of flavor. This wine is chalked full of pink and yellow starburst candy, meyer lemon, white flowers, and yuzu. It is the perfect addition to our RANGE series.

Revelry VintnersGrenache

Grenache is an elusive beast, at its finest in moderately warm climates, and when protected from intense direct sun. Of the two blocks we source from, we use only Block 30B at Alder Ridge Vineyard in this bottling. Set on a bench 200 ft. above the mighty Columbia River, this block of Grenache is planted in sand laden soils and ensconced in an amphitheater of exposed Basalt bluffs. The radiant heat in this area is incredible, though it is tempered by the river itself. The amount of water moved through the Columbia River Gorge is incomprehensible and all that water acts to moderate the surrounding air temperature. This, in tandem with steady air flow through the gorge, works to protect the vines from heat and cold. This vintage is incredibly pure and accomplishes this goal well. This is a wine of moderate body. Neutral French oak barrels are used to accentuate and brighten the fruit qualities in the wine, which carries notes of pomegranate, huckleberry and strawberry hard candy. A savory sensibility anchors the profile throughout, creating a perfectly beautiful wine.

Revelry Vintners Cabernet Franc Bottle Preview

The Wahluke Slope itself is sort of an Eden in the middle of the high desert of Washington State. A south-facing alluvial slope running for miles, it is formed of perfectly draining soils just rich enough to support most any crop you can imagine. Grapes thrive here. We have had the most luck at this site with Cabernet Franc and Syrah in particular. While we generally yield 7 to 9 barrels of wine from the site annually, just a fraction of that makes it to bottle. Past vintages have typically been just a barrel or two (25 cases per barrel of wine) as we tend to scrutinize this wine more than any other for the simple fact that when Cabernet Franc is pristine, it rivals any other variety in the world.

Revelry Vintners Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Bottle Preview
Revelry VintnersRed Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Red Mountain is known for having incredibly warm days and cool nights, with sand and loam soils, which all in turn create some of Washington State's most intense Cabernet Sauvignon fruit and truly incredible scale and structure. The wine has a beautiful nose and great balance in the glass. It will not overpower, but rather compliment, most any protein you pair it with. It is also a wine you could certainly enjoy standalone. In the past two years Heart of the Hill vineyard has been named Vineyard of the Year and the Williams family, Grower of the Year. With age this planting has come to produce elegantly powerful wines. Our 2016 release spent 36 months in 75% new french oak barrels. The result is a wine with a dark ruby hue, aromatics of peonies, creme brûlée and medjool Dates, and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, kirsch chocolates, and a wisp of refined tannin. This is a beautiful wine to be enjoyed now and long into the future.

Revelry Vintners Horse Heaven Reserve Merlot Bottle Preview

Merlot is the grape most responsible for the existence of Revelry Vintners. After years of tasting and enjoying wine with a raw interest, it was a singular experience with Merlot sourced merely miles from where we now grow our Merlot for this wine in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA that wholly grabbed our Winemaker, Jared Burns', attention. Merlot from these locations shows the variety in what we feel is its true light. With a round profile and a dense, saturated mid palate, this is a Merlot with a great deal of scale. The flavor profile is a beautiful sort of compote of fresh blackberries, Marionberry, and blueberry over roasted vanilla meringue. This wine will age incredibly well for 10 yrs and beyond.

Revelry Vintners Block 19 Syrah Bottle Preview
Revelry VintnersBlock 19 Syrah

The Block 19 Syrah from Weinbau Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope was the first Syrah to exhibit the qualities we were looking for from the variety. Made from the 877 clone, with its 'roots' (pun intended) in Southern France, this Syrah is produced with a focus on minimal intervention. We leave it on its lees for an extended period of time, stirring those lees early in its cellaring. The wine will spend 22-24 months in barrel. It is unfined, unfiltered, with an incredibly dark yet lively fruit, and a smoky aromatic substructure.
