Zerba Cellars
Walla Walla Valley
December 12

​​ 2011 NW Wine Press Winery of the Year

      Zerba Cellars is a family-owned, estate winery located in the heart of the Walla Walla Valley.   We own three estate vineyards in the appellation’s most exciting viticultural zones.   We are fortunate to work with a wide range of grape varieties and vineyard sources.   Each vineyard and grape variety has a unique character that contributes to the quality, complexity and balance of our individual wines.   Each grape variety is hand-crafted separately and we conduct rigorous blending trials that combine discipline and creativity to produce wines that are greater than the sum of their parts.
     We produce approachable, food friendly wines that showcase the fruit without compromising the wine's structure and overall balance.   We have three estate vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley.   Each was planted to take advantage of the Walla Walla Valley's unique soil types and elevations.   Our Jon Cockburn Ranch Vineyard is located in the Southeast corner of the valley, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Dad's Vineyard is located in the "Touchet Beds", near the state line.   Winesap Road Vineyard is located in the rocky floodplain of the Walla Walla River.
