Stottle Winery

About

Our hand-crafted wines are the culmination of a journey from grape to bottle. Each wine in our collection is an expression of the earth from which the vine was grown; the careful guidance of the grower, and the gentle hand of the winemaker guiding it towards a final transformation into brilliance. Our wines are our passion for life expressed through the grape and shared with our friends.

Winemaker

Founder and winemaker Josh Stottlemyer is the force behind the complex and nuanced wines of Stottle Winery. After selling his successful web development and internet marketing firm he took his passion for wine to the next level enrolling at the Northwest Wine Academy in Seattle where he completed their 2 year winemaking program. The Northwest Wine Academy features a full working teaching winery and instructors who were leaders in the Washington industry. Josh also holds a bachelors of science from the University of Minnesota where he studied chemical engineering and geology.

History

Founded by Amy and Josh Stottlemyer, Stottle Winery was established through a passion for wine and the simple pleasures of life. We believe that each wine is an expression of all of the things that influence the grape on its journey from vine to wine. Our duty as winemaker is to bring out the greatest expression of each of the elements that touch the grape in its life. The quality of the soils, the intensity of the sun, the cooling influence of the mountains and rivers, and the care and skill of the grower all lend subtle influences to a wine. Like a sculptor must find the statue incased in the stone, so must a winemaker find the perfect expression of that grape.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Elerding Canyon Vineyard - Yakima Valley AVA
This vineyard, where we source our Viognier, is just Southwest of Prosser and features the second oldest Viognier wines in Washington state. These vines are cropped to about 2.5 tons per acre which intensifies the flavors and complexity of the wines we make using these grapes.

Elerding 6 Prong Vineyard - Horse Heaven Hills AVA
This highly sought after old vine vineyard sits next to the Columbia River Gorge with its moderating winds, warm days and cool nights; it provides an ideal location for growing many grape varietals. Many of the varieties in the Elerding vineyards are among the oldest vines of their type in the State. Our Malbec, Syrah, and Sangiovese come from these venerable vines. In prior (and future years) we have sourced Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera, Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, and Mourvedre from this vineyard.

Marcela Vineyard - Yakima Valley AVA
We source Roussanne from this wonderful little vineyard located just outside of Zilla. The vines here are cropped to less then 2 tons per acre intensifying the flavors of this highly sensitive grape.

Elephant Mountain Vineyard - Yakima Valley AVA
If you look to the north traveling down I-84 as you near Zilla, the hills take on the shape of a giant sleeping elephant. Located in these hills is Elephant Mountain Vineyards, the highest and hottest vineyard in the Yakima Valley with similar heat units to Red Mountain. We source our Merlot from this vineyard as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Viognier (for our late harvest) in 2011.
