april - rotie cellars


Sean's path to Rotie Cellars wasn’t the one prescribed in the "How to become a prestigious winemaker" textbook. His college degree was in geology, and he spent ten years doing oil and gas exploration before making the leap to wine.

After working his first harvest at Waters Winery in 2004, he learned the profession in multiple positions before stepping out on his own in 2007. The non-traditional background turned out to be a perfect fit—he’s a winemaker who really knows his soils.

Wine is personal with Sean, and as far as he’s concerned, there’s no right or wrong way to create or consume it. He just makes what he loves to drink—French-style Rhone blends. His philosophical approach is Old World and natural, and his fingerprints are on every step of the winemaking process. He believes great wine happens mostly in the vineyard, and that his main job is to stay out of nature’s way.

Sean grew up in Tacoma, WA, and is a husband and father of three. He enjoys great food, cold beer, fantastic wine, and a hearty cup of coffee—black, and preferably from Walla Walla Roastery.

july - 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

november - revelry vintners


Revelry Vintners offers a complete lineup of wines, each a pure representation of their origins in the Columbia Valley - from their single-vineyard AERIALS™ Series of wines to the Columbia Valley Collection where it all began. Revelry crafts their wines with the skilled hands of a chosen few in their cellars in Walla Walla Washington, relying on time-tested techniques passed down to them from history, in unison with modern technology and a few tricks of their own learned over time. Individually, Revelry Vintner’s 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 their beginnings, they 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.

december - 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 partnered to craft responsibly produced wines that reflect the potential for elegant and balanced wines from this singular place. As Echolands Winery cares for their young vineyards, they seek to amplify that echo from the land and the grapevines in every bottle they 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."
