Vineyard Sources in
The Rocks District

Watermill Winery is a premium wine producer located in the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA. A newly acclaimed alluvial fan of cobble, encompassed by the highly regarded Walla Walla Valley AVA. The Brown family’s passion for agriculture, and a strong desire to produce quality products, led to the renaissance of a family name and a historical landmark production facility, the Watermill Building (c.1944) of Watermill Foods fame.

Watermill Winery was founded in 2005 by 2nd generation family members, to reveal the unique and valuable resources of our bountiful valley to the wider wine world. Our remarkable vineyard sites with unique terroir, coupled with experienced vineyard management, give credence to the saying, “The best wine starts in the vineyard.” The wines from Watermill are hand crafted and estate grown, with a focus on preserving the natural expressions of both vineyard and varietal characteristics, while maintaining balance and the ability to age. Come enjoy the fruits of our labor and experience our love for the land.
