When Dave Stephenson arrived in Walla Walla in 1999, there were just 14 wineries. He quickly got hired by Waterbook Winery and was able to hone his skills making wine for both their label and their custom crush clients. At night, he poured over the UC Davis enology and viticulture curriculum courses.

In 2001, he leased his current facility near the Walla Walla airport, financing the venture himself, which gave him the freedom to make the wines he wants. “I don’t want to make ‘bell curve’ wines,” Dave says. “The ones where you blend varieties together for predictable flavor profiles that have been proven to please most wine drinkers. I like to accentuate what’s edgy about particular vineyard lots. I am the first to admit that my wines aren’t for everyone.”

Current wine releases are sourced from a stable of Walla Walla and Columbia Valley vineyards as well as his estate vineyard, Stellar located “on the rocks” in Milton-Freewater. In addition, Dave has planted several rows of different varietals at the winery, comprising a  “scrapbook” of different grapes from vineyards he’s visited across Washington. He takes cuttings and propagates them as a way to remember the grapes he really likes.
