College Cellars

College Cellars College Cellars of Walla Walla is a nonprofit teaching winery located at the Center for Enology and Viticulture on the campus of Walla Walla Community College. The 15,000 square foot facility houses wine curriculum classrooms, a wine analysis laboratory, faculty offices, and the fully operational commercial winery. In addition, the building is the home of Walla Walla Community College’s culinary arts program. College Cellars of Walla Walla is the only two-year teaching commercial winery in the United States. Our wines are crafted by students as a part of their study of the science of wine making. Students hand fill, cork, and label all wines. The winery was bonded in September, 2003 and our first wine, a 2002 Sagemoor Vineyards Chardonnay, was released in May, 2004.

  Cabernet Franc (Columbia Valley)
A bright ruby robe blends into aromas of delicate violets and truffles, all highlighted nicely by a subtle backdrop of toasty oak spice. Soft tannins lead to a round, plush mouthfeel with hints of blueberry and pomegranate. A long finish of caramel/butterscotch is sure to please.
  Chardonnay (Columbia Valley)
Vibrant acidity backs broad flavors of lemon pound cake and toasted marshmallow, but without the sweetness. This Chardonnay is fat without being flabby, round but finishing crisp and clean. This is how Chardonnay should be.
  Clifton Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Earthy overtones are overtaken by rich aromas of black cherries, sassafras, and vanilla. This is a graceful Cabernet Sauvignon, one that will charm you with its elegance as opposed to hit you upside the head with a sledgehammer. Velvety tannins and an ultra-long finish make this wine ready for the holiday ham.
  Lemberger (Columbia Valley)
With a beautiful ruby red robe characteristic of this greatly underappreciated variety, this Lemberger emanates candied cherries and cranberries with hints of chocolate and fennel spice. This wine is Washington?s answer to Chianti, lighter in tannin but with a vibrant acidity that will accompany a wide variety of foods.
  Rosé of Syrah (Columbia Valley)
almon-colored hues portend a great summer-time sipper. A subtle complex of strawberry, juicy-fruit, and fennel blend into a round, smooth mouthfeel just bursting with bright red fruit flavors. Snappy acidity make this wine a great foil for a wide range of mid-year favorites including grilled ahi, roasted franks, or a fresh pasta salad.
  Sagemoor Vineyards Semillon (Columbia Valley)
Our best Semillon yet, it bursts with aromas of fresh pineapple and lemon zest. It is big and unctuous for a white wine, yet finishes with a crisp minerality. This wine pairs impeccably with seafood.
  Syrah (Columbia Valley)
This deeply garnet red busts with flavors of a freshly baked wild mountain berry pie. Swirl in subtle aromas of alpine cedar and add a dollop of dark chocolate, and you have our 2004 Syrah. Enjoy now through 2010.
