Our Story

The vineyard consists of seven acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes and one and a half acres of Syrah grapes. All of the grapes were planted in 1999. The micro-climate of the vineyard is optimal and comparable to Leonetti’s Upland vineyard approximately a half mile away. This vineyard is one of the few vineyards that had no plant damage during the winter freeze of 2003-2004.

With the Walla Faces winemaking effort being the result of teamwork and creativity, Rick Johnson, owner, has been at the center of the operation. He is engaged in every detail and guides the winemaking vision. He is dedicated to consistency and premium outcomes in developing the Walla Faces style.

Alongside Rick is the talented and renowned Matthew Loso, winemaker. Matt's role is to bring the wine to the bottle and make sure the whole process is given attention in order to make the best wine possible. Matt is a former owner of Matthews Cellars and has a stellar reputation throughout the country for his winemaking capabilities. He has received numerous 90+ ratings from national wine magazines on his wines, and has over twenty years winemaking experience.

Walla Faces is all about wine, inns and art. In addition to producing premium wines from its estate vineyard, Walla Faces operates unique luxury accommodations in two locations; downtown Walla Walla, and at the estate Vineyard property. The Walla Faces Tasting Room serves as a gallery for art, musical performances, gatherings, meetings and wine tasting. We hope you can join us!
