Lodmell Cellars is conveniently located in Downtown Walla Walla, inside the Historic Marcus Whitman Hotel. Our original 15-acre vineyard was planted in 1995 and continues to produce some of Walla Walla’s finest Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. We recently added an additional 15 acres of grapes to include Semillon, Syrah, and Cab Franc. Lodmell Vineyards is now a 30-acre Estate Vineyard on the lower Snake River--which was the original inspiration for our coiled-snake wine label.
