Lodmell Cellars tasting room is located in the heart of downtown Walla Walla in the Marcus Whitman Hotel. Stop in and taste their award winning Bordeaux style wines. Their Merlot is one of my favorite wines with rich black cherry flavors and velvety tannins. This trip I brought back a bottle of the Sublime Red Blend which is Merlot 65%, Cabernet Sauvignon 21%, and Carmenere 14% which will be delicious with something off the grill.
Lodmell Cellars owners, Andrew Lodmell & Kristie Lodmell are part of a fourth generation Walla Walla farming family with roots dating back to the late 1800’s. The estate vineyards consists of 30 acres which are located about 30 miles northwest of Walla Walla on the lower Snake River. All the wines feature the image of a coiled snake in honor of their roots on the banks of the Snake River.
