Caterina Winery

Caterina Winery Conveniently located in the historic Broadview Dairy building in downtown Spokane, Washington. adjacent to Riverfront Park...Caterina’s tradition of handcrafting premium wines began seven generations ago in the village of San Pietro Vara in the hills of Northern Italy. There, Caterina lovingly created wines for the sake of enjoying them with family and friends. Caterina Winery first opened its doors in Washington State in 1993 as a tribute to a beloved Grandmother and family icon. Today her legacy continues as we follow the traditions of careful attention to detail; beginning with both traditional and progressive vineyard management practices. From hand harvesting through precisely regulated fermentations, we remain intimate with each and every lot of wine up until the thoughtful selection of barrels where we lay the wine to rest. We then relinquish our guidance, and replace it with the most simple of nurturing. The wine is put to sleep much as a very young child. It is during this rest period that the wine evolves, essentially "grows" on its own until, as with most things youthful, it passes through a phase of independence. Upon awakening, we restore the once intimate relationship we began the moment we decided to turn fruit into wine. Monica Meglasson came to Caterina in 1998 and in 2002 took over as Winemaker and Director of operations. In honor of the wineries Italian heritage Meglasson began working with the varietals Sangiovese and Pinot Grigio. To date they have been very popular and regularly sell out before the release of the next vintage. An Oregon native, Meglasson holds great passion for the wines of Washington State believing it to have the perfect climate. Hot summer days and cool summer nights provide grapes with the perfect conditions for ripening. The unique soil composition is due to ancient floods and lends very distinctive terrior to it’s valleys. Meglasson is also very enthusiastic about the caliber of wine grape growers she works with. Caterina is a boutique winery producing a wide range of wines from the Bohemian Series of "Artistic Affordable Blends" to the Vineyard Series of exclusive single vineyard old vine wines. Varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Viognier and Riesling.
