Established in 1988 as the fifth winery in the Walla Walla Valley by the founding families of the original Seven Hills Vineyard (now named the Founding Blocks at SHW Estate Vineyard). Our founders were determined in the belief that the soils and climate of this region could produce wines of international renown. Our commitment to the Walla Walla Valley is enduring, with vineyard designated Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Seven Hills Vineyard produced since vintage 1988. As one of the first producers of Syrah in the Valley, we look forward to once again making Rhone red wines from the new Rocks District blocks at SHW Estate Vineyard in vintage 2020.
The heart of our wine portfolio is in the Walla Walla Valley, but the excellent grapes of Red Mountain and the greater Columbia Valley are less than 70 miles away! We are privileged to make a vineyard designated wine from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard, and rely on the Columbia Valley for grapes to create delicious Sauvignon Blanc and our dry Rosé of Cabernet Franc.
It has been quite a journey from the fruit processing building where we started, to our current home in the historic Whitehouse Crawford Building in downtown Walla Walla. Built in 1904 to provide lumber, fixtures and furniture for a booming economy, it was repurposed and renovated in 1999 to house the Whitehouse Crawford restaurant and Seven Hills Winery. Our tasting room provides a view into the temperature controlled, sky-lit barrel room. Our wines quietly age there under massive old growth timber beams, where in a previous century skilled craftsmen were hard at work helping to build the town of Walla Walla itself. We invite you to visit for a tasting and building tour. Open Daily.
A fourth-generation farmer, Casey was raised in Walla Walla, Washington, and started working in agriculture in the seventh grade. In 1982, he joined his father in planting the now-famous Founding Blocks at SHW Estate Vineyard. Inspired by this experience, Casey went on to earn a Masters of Science with a focus on enology from UC Davis, and in 1988, he and his wife, Vicky, founded Seven Hills Winery.
