Walla Walla Winery: Dusted Valley Wine Gallery is Coming to Town

by Shona Milne on March 31, 2009

Look for Dusted Valley Vintners to open up a tasting room and art gallery this spring in Woodinville. The tasting room will be located in a space formerly occupied by SunBaby Tanning which is a few doors down from Woodinville Purple Cafe. I received a press release from Simon Siegl at CoEfficient Consulting with more details.

NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                         




Walla Walla, WA March 27, 2009 – The owners of Dusted Valley Vintners, a Walla Walla-based wine producer, have secured space in the Hollywood Vineyards Retail Center in Woodinville for the Dusted Valley Wine Gallery a wine tasting room and visual arts gallery anticipated to open in late Spring.


The winery, founded in 2003, produces premium cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah and blends, as well as chardonnay and viognier under the Dusted Valley Vintners label.  Production philosophies focused on sustainable vineyard practices and low intervention winemaking techniques have helped develop distinct wines and rapid growth.  More recently, the winery launched Boomtown to meet the need for a value brand in the “booming” Washington wine industry.  Boomtown was recognized as one of the nation’s top-100 value brands in 2008 by Wine & Spirits magazine.


“Having a presence in both sides of the state is an opportunity to show more wine fans what Walla Walla can produce,” says co-owner Chad Johnson.  “We love hosting folks at our Walla Walla tasting room, but it’s a long drive for the majority of the population that lives in the greater Seattle area.”


“Most of the 500-plus members of our wine club, the “Stained Tooth Society” live in Western Washington,” noted co-owner Corey Braunel.  “Our Dusted Valley Wine Gallery in Woodinville will make it possible for us to offer more events for our dedicated followers and create new fans.”


Woodinville, home to over 40 wineries, is recognized as THE destination for winery touring in Western Washington.  “Wineries and their tasting rooms are like grapes, they grow best in bunches,” said Cynthia Dasté, executive director of Woodinville Wine Country.  “The experience of our member wineries is that their visitors really like the convenience of having a variety to choose from in one location.”


The tasting room will be located near the Hollywood Schoolhouse at the intersection of 148th Avenue N.E. and N.E. 145th Street, near other wineries including Chateau Ste. Michelle, Columbia Winery, DeLille Cellars, Brian Carter Cellars and the Bookwalter Winery Tasting Studio.  The winery’s main website is www.dustedvalley.com.
