The Bergevin family's roots run deep in Walla Walla having settled in the area in the mid-1800's. Gary Bergevin has been involved in the viticultural side of the wine industry since 1972 when he became a director of Sandpiper Farms. He then co-founded Canoe Ridge Vineyards and later became a member on the board of directors of Canoe Ridge Vineyards Winery.
Bergevin Lane Vineyards was formed in 2001 and is the combined passion of three partners Gary Bergevin, his daughter Annette Bergevin and Amber Lane.
With the national attention that Washington wines are receiving, strong family ties, and the opportunity to follow their dreams, Annette and Amber decided to leave Sonoma County, California to make Walla Walla their home.
The winery officially opened its doors in May 2003 and is housed in a 20,000 square foot "modern industrial" building located in downtown Walla Walla.

Of special note:
Virginie Bourgue, the talented French-born winemaker guides the vinification production for the BLV team along with entrepreneurial efforts Annette Bergevin and Amber Lane who are both owners/managers. The winery currently produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Calico Red, Viognier, Semillon, and Intuition -- a Reserve Bordeaux Blend.
