Caterina Winery’s tradition of handcrafting premium wines began as a tribute to a beloved Italian Grandmother. We opened our doors in 1993 with award-winning wines from premium grapes from the Yakima and Walla Walla Valleys and since then have continued the Caterina legacy of creating wines that showcase the beauty and elegance of Washington state fruit. Owner and winemaker Don Townshend is a fixture in the Spokane wine community and we are thrilled to have his winemaking expertise and passion at Caterina! Click here to view a recent DrinkNectar interview with Don. We follow the traditions of meticulous attention to detail; we remain closely connected with each and every lot of wine up until the thoughtful selection of barrels where we lay the wine to rest. We then relinquish our guidance, and the wine is put to sleep much as a very young child. It is during this rest period that the wine evolves, essentially "grows" on its own until, as with most things youthful, it passes through a phase of independence Read more »

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Mt. Etna is located in northeastern Sicily in the province of Catania. Viticulture on the lower slopes of Mt. Etna dates back millennia. We live, however, in an age where we want to know what you have done for me lately. That’s good news for Etna’s DOC wines. Winemaking on Europe’s most active volcano is hot, both literally and figuratively. Etn... Read More

  • It always seemed odd to us that in Piemonte, the land of Barolo, the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings, we would always find a bottle of Barbera in front of us on the table. The answer was and is simple: Barbera is bountiful, versatile, delicious and moderate in price. The Piemontesi drink more reds than whites and almost 50% of the reds that ... Read More

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More

  • It’s been quite awhile since Caterina Dei and her gracious mother welcomed me to their winery home just below Montepulciano. Well, okay, everything lays below Montepulciano -- the Dei estate lies to the southeast, in the direction of the Lake Trasemeno where the soils are rich in clay and alluvial deposits, and the morning fog is a regular featu...
