Production: (1995) 200 cases, (1996) 200 cases, (1997) 400 cases, (1998) 1,200 cases
Vineyards: none

In 1995, Eric Dunham produced 200 cases of his own wine while working as assistant winemaker at L'Ecole No. 41. (These limited quantity releases have brought in a healthy price in the Seattle marketplace.) Each year since, he has continued to make small lots, though generally increasing in quantity to the current 1,200 cases (1998).

In March 1999, they've begun remodeling a 5,400 square foot WWII building at the Walla Walla Regional Airport to hold the winery for the next three or four years. They've also bought 21 acres just east of L'Ecole for their own winery and vineyard. Talk about ambitious!

Of special note:
The 1998 Cab of approx 1200 cases will be released in November 2000, with first priority to the members of the wineries Mailing list.

They are open for Balloon Stampede weekend (the 2nd weekend of May), by appointment, and of course, for the Christmas Barrel Tasting (the 1st weekend in December).
