Our winemaker, Josh McDaniel’s, is an up and coming wine making guru for the new millennium. He credits his growth in the industry to numerous people and events. Don Redman of Mannina Cellars and Chris Figgins of Leonetti Cellar first gave him the exposure needed.

Eventually Chris helped him out with his first 25 plant Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard and Don helped him with the winemaking to start Sweet Valley Wines. Today, with the help of his father, a few other family members and close friends, he develops our wines while continuing to work for Leonetti Cellar, and all in conjunction with finishing his studies at the Institute of Enology and Viticulture in Walla Walla. When looking to start a winery he knew it definitely had to be in Walla Walla. Josh has been raised in the Walla Walla Valley, loves Read more »

  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required.

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...
