january - time & direction


Hailing from the restaurant scene in New York City, Steve Wells chose Walla Walla to learn how to make wine in 2011.  He’s worked for Gramercy Cellars and M&L Production and earned his degree in Enology & Viticulture from the Walla Walla Community College before starting Time & Direction in 2016.  Steve brings his restaurant background into winemaking by focusing on food-friendly wines as well as his personality to every label by making them all different based on things that have been important to him during his lifetime.  Entering the Time & Direction tasting room is like stepping into his brain with 80's & 90’s pop culture references, music, video games, and of course wine, decorating all the walls.  Not your average tasting room experience.  It isn’t often that you’ll hear lo-fi jazz music playing one minute and then heavy metal the next.  Drink wine and enjoy!

february - echolands


Echolands Winery was created in 2018 by Brad Bergman and Doug Frost, two Kansas City residents who believed in the Walla Walla Valley AVA’s ability to offer a distinct style of wine, one that would benefit from aging. Paired with Taylor Oswald, an eleven-year veteran of Walla Walla winemaking, the three have partnered to craft responsibly produced wines that reflect the potential for elegant and balanced wines from this singular place.
As we care for our young vineyards, we seek to amplify that echo from the land and the grapevines in every bottle we make. Winemaking can’t be anything more than a subtle (at best) shaping of that sound; we cannot create qualities that are not there in the grapes.

may - caprio cellars


“A love for wine has been in my family long before I was born. My ancestors viewed wine as simply an essential part of daily life. Sanitella, my great grandmother, knew each family in her small Italian neighborhood by their homemade wine. For her, a person’s very character was built on the quality of their craft. Now, with Caprio Cellars, I hope to honor the tradition my family has had with wine for over a century. I hope that you will become a part of the Caprio family and enjoy what for me is so elemental to the joy of life. Welcome to Caprio Cellars.”
- Dennis Murphy, Winemaker & Owner
