    Forgeron, the French word for blacksmith, also refers to artisans who build with their hands combining experience with an extensive knowledge of their trade. In our winemaking we assure quality through a time-tested hands-on approach. Our careful selection of vineyards, our gentle handling of fruit and our precise blending of varieties shows respect for age-old traditions. A renovated, turn of the century blacksmith shop houses our tastng room and winery, where we strive for a wonderful depth and complexity in our wines. We invite you to experience the tradition.

    Winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla
    Founded in 2001, the winery became reality when the investors recruited a French born and educated winemaker, Marie-Eve Gilla. Marie-Eve has extensive experience as a winemaker, in the Burgundy region of France, Oregon, and Washington. Under Marie-Eve's direction, Forgeron Cellars focuses on producing true varietal wines. Marie-Eve says, "My wines have a sense of place, they reflect their terroir which is composite of the vine location and the grower dedication. I practice minimal intervention winemaking, enabling each grape to fully express itself. Using this winemaking philosophy allows me to craft food friendly wines of great character."

    2007 Klipsun Merlot
  • Appellation: Red Mountain
  • Winemaker: Marie-Eve Gilla
  • Ideal Spring 2007 conditions lead into slightly lower but uneven Summer temperatures. Slightly cool, yet perfectly sunny and dry Fall weather allowed for flavor development, acid balance, and ripeness. 2007 is an excellent vintage for Merlot with balance to allow for a decade of aging.

    The Motto of our 2007 Klipsun Merlot is "Go Big or Go...Bigger"! Our second Klipsun Vineyard-designate Merlot is the essence of Red Mountain with its intense, bold structure that still maintains a fruit-fo...

    2009 Primitivo
  • Appellation: Wahluke Slope
  • Winemaker: Marie-Eve Gilla
  • Primitivo is a lesser known varietal that is closely related to the Zinfandel grape, however the wines they produce have very distinct differences. The fruit character is less jammy, the structure is more similar to old world wines, with rustic notes of earth and spice, as well as tamed fruit flavors. Incredible aromas of cherry wood, boysenberries, braised figs and a hint of white pepper. The mouth is big and chewy with flavors of roasted cocoa beans, bittersweet chocolate, dried berries, pumpk... ...read more

  • Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot
  • Winemaker: Marie-Eve Gilla
  • hey say "good things come to those who wait" and while it's hard, Vinfinity always rewards us for our patience! Our 2007 Vinfinity is a juicy vibrant wine in the true Bordeaux style with incredible potential for graceful aging. The nose is brimming with rich, spicy coffee and cocoa beans balanced with ripe eucalyptus and seductive fruit. Your palate will delight with blackberry and chocolate-covered cherries balanced by luscious tannins. The mouth-feel is dense and full with a smooth velvet text... ...read more

    NV Walldeaux Smithie
  • Appellation: Columbia Valley
  • Blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petit Verdot
  • Winemaker: Marie-Eve Gilla
  • Walldeaux is a non-vintage blend for more consistency and desity. Blending vintages allows a full tasting experience with complex layers from the "mature" vintages, combining with fruity, youthful and juicy mouth filling flavors from the "younger" vintages. This wine is bold and juicy with a firm structure. The full flavors and smooth tannins suggest a new-world wine while its focus and balance, dark fruit and spice flavors are definitely reminiscent of old world Bordeaux.
  • Acclaim: "An excellent value, this is full of plum and deep cherry flavors and shows fresh acidity. All this is set against a backbone of soft tannins. It's an Old World style of wine with New World taste, big fruit, soft tannins that meld beautifully." Victoria Lahti, Washington Wine Awards, April 2009

    2010 Chardonnay
  • Appellation: Columbia Valley
  • Chardonnay Blend
  • Blend of Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc,
  • Winemaker: Marie-Eve Gilla
  • We like to use multiple vineyards in our quest to produce our very unique, consistent, signature Chardonnay. By sourcing from many terroirs, some cooler and some warmer, we consistently craft the complex, rich, and full bodied yet deliciously crisp, refreshing Chardonnay we are so famous for. An unusually cool 2010 Spring & Summer lead into a consistently warm Fall, producing balanced, elegant wines with lower alcohol and higher acidity.
  • Acclaim: "David said it best: this Chardonnay is indeed beautiful. It's crisp and bright and even a bit floral but it really fills the mouth well with a great finish." Clive Pursehouse, The Oregon Wine Blog, November 2010

    2010 Ambiance
  • Appellation: Columbia Valley
  • Grenache Blanc Blend
  • Blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Orange Muscat,
  • Winemaker: Marie-Eve Gilla
  • Every so often you discover a wine that takes your mind away from the everyday and magically transports you to a crisp Spring afternoon of relaxing in the sun of Provence. Our 2nd edition of Ambiance, a blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Orange Muscat, is again inspired by the white wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Each varietal brings unique characteristics to the wine to create a special atmosphere of pure enjoyment.

    The crisp, full nose greets you with delicious aromas of orange peel, ...
