Overview
More
When Forgeron opened in 2001, as the 23rd winery in Walla Walla, Washington, two things defined us: our decision to set down roots in downtown Walla Walla; and winemaker, Marie-Eve Gilla’s French roots, and viticulture and oenology training in Burgundy. It was serendipitous that our new home was on the site of a turn-of-the-Century blacksmith shop. Blacksmiths are serious artisans. Able to create such beauty from ferrous metal, Blacksmiths require great skill and patience, but also great passion. The name Forgeron [FOR-juh-ron] is the French term for “blacksmith”, skilled artisans who work with their hands in an age-old tradition. We produce complex, age-worthy wines that express Washington’s full potential. We are motivated by our next trip into the vineyards or finding the next, best location for a particular variety, and then putting our skills to work with restraint, to respect the fruit’s identity through winemaking. Wines: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Barbera, Malbec, Rhone-inspired Red (GSM) and White, Primitivo, Red Blend, Rose Book our Reserve Tasting Experience, Fridays at 3:30pm or Saturdays at 11am. Or join us Saturdays at 1pm for a tour of the winery (no reservation required. for groups of 6 or more, please call ahead for an optimal experience!)

Visiting friends for a few days in Walla Walla we spent one day making the tour of the downtown tasting rooms. Our friend knows someone who works at Forgeron so he suggested we go a bit off the downtown path to visit there. So glad...More

We loved their Chardonnay- very rare for this area. Also, their reds were perfectly balanced. The Barbera and Cab Sav were our favorite. Jeremy helped us and he was so pleasant.

Another tasting room versus a winery but we found a few wines that raised the eyebrows. Check it out.

Forgeron Cellars has proved that "to die for" French style wines can be and are made with Washington State grapes. How they do it? It is all to the unmatched talent of French born, now US winemaker Marie Eve Gilla. Enjoy her wines in her...More

We had a wine tasting at this winery. The server was very informed on the wines, and the making of them. Part of their image is to do things slightly differently, which in my opinion turned out to the good side for some wines.
