History

The concept of Enchanted Cellars wine style was born at a fine restaurant in Spokane in 2004. The original owners had just ended another trip searching for the right vineyard site in the Walla Walla Valley and had ordered a Walla Walla Merlot which was so good that it became the touchstone for all their wine efforts. They knew then that half the search was over; they had their wine style defined for them that night and the mission crystallized.

The original owner, Ronn Coldiron started on his wine journey about 20 years ago totally by chance; while driving by a vineyard in the Fall he fell in love with wine growing. About 10 years ago he planted a small private vineyard and managed everything from the planting, grafting, cropping and harvesting all himself. Having a Ph.D. in Geology gave Ronn the ability to analyze certain aspects of terroir that are critical to a first rate vineyard. His philosophy is good wine can only be made from good fruit, and this has been accomplished with our own Estate Vineyard blocks and with our vineyard partners throughout the Columbia Valley and Walla Walla AVA. As winemaker, Ronn's philosophy was to let the wine make itself and so preserve the unique identity of each vintage. Individual character is essential in making high quality Bordeaux-style wine.

Our passion is to continue to craft wines that have these three essential qualities: complex bouquet, balanced and rich mouthfeel, and long rewarding finish.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

The mission has always been to craft wines that reflect the terroir of Washington State. In reaching out to top vineyards in the Walla Walla and Columbia Valleys and forging great friendships with excellent grape farmers, we are able to produce just under 700 cases of these wines per year. This limited production allows us to concentrate on high quality, both in the vineyards that we partner with and in our wine-making. In 2006, we found 13 acres of land along Old Hwy 12, west of Walla Walla. Featuring a south facing slope, excellent air drainage, and cool nighttime temperatures, this site will preserve the natural acidity essential for food friendly red wines. The estate is perfectly sized for nine to ten acres of vines, which translates to no more than 600-800 cases of a premium Bordeaux varietals. Our commitment is to establish estate production and maintain our current bottlings with our vineyard partners.
