Robert Karl Cellars was started in 1999 by physician winemaker, Joe Gunselman and his wife, Rebecca. The grapes are grown in the Horse Heaven Hills, an American Viticultural Area (AVA) of the Columbia Valley in Washington state. Through the years, the winery has consistently produced handcrafted, premium, cabernet sauvignons and Bordeaux style blends. The Gunselmans have remained true to their original mission; to create world class, limited production wines. Currently, Robert Karl produces about 1,000 cases of wine. The winery and tasting room are located in the historic warehouse district of downtown Spokane, Washington. The winery is open for tasting and sales.
