At the time it was founded in 1983, L'Ecole was only the third winery in Walla Walla and the twentieth in the entire state of Washington. Still family run, the third generation is now heavily involved, and the pioneering spirit of the winery continues. Fruit for this old vine Chenin is sourced from four vineyards in the Yakima Valley. The wine is complex with white flowers and layered fruits from apricots, white peach and yellow apples. Hints of beeswax and honey give the wine texture, yet the finish is lively and fresh.
