Our Story

Our head winemaker Juergen Grieb has a degree in winemaking and sparkling winemaking from Germany. From the town of Trier on the Mosel River next to Luxemburg, Juergen learned his craft at Kartheuserhof Winery under the tutelage of Herr Ludwig Breiling and worked with owner Christoph Tyrell. He also worked for the Duhr Sektkellerei in Trier which was a sparkling wine facility. Juergen is now passing along all his winemaking knowledge to his son Christian who has a degree in finance from Seattle University and is attending UC Davis Winemaking School. After graduating, Juergen moved to the United States to make wine for an early German held winery on the Wahluke Slope in 1983. Juergen has worked in the Washington State wine industry since then, most recently for a bulk wine producer as the Head Winemaker producing 6 million gallons of still wine. Juergen opened Treveri Cellars at Thanksgiving in 2010 and produces handcrafted Methode Champenois sparkling wines. All our grapes are contracted from the lower Yakima Valley and we use the Columbia Valley AVA on all our labels. Fresh, complex, yeasty and 100% varietal, each bottle is a wonderfully unique experience! Located in Yakima, Washington, you can visit the sparkling wine production facility and taste each of the wines currently released. Our label reflects where our winemaker is from with his hometown Trier originally named Augusta Treverorum in Roman times, and later changing to Treveris. Our winery, Treveri cellars, is a take on the name Treveris in honor of our winemakers roots.
