The idea for Smoky Rose Cellars came about as Josh & Jodi discussed what to do after Josh's retirement from the Air Force. Josh developed a passion for wine while stationed in California and Germany and Jodi has always loved hosting friends and family for dinners and parties (where there was always wine). Having shared so many wine vacations together, it seemed only natural that Josh's sister Amy, a wine enthusiast and fellow serviceman in the Marine Corps, decided to join them in the adventure. The name itself, Smoky Rose Cellars, is an homage to their two kiddos...Smoky (their dog) and Laurelai Rose (their daughter). It is their mission as a boutique, family-owned winery to craft incredible wines that create long-standing experiences and memories for everyone they meet.
Smoky Rose Cellars is located in the beautiful Walla Walla Valley AVA, where the wonderful grape-growing climate produces succulent jewels on the vine. We source grapes from a variety of amazing vineyards in the valley so we can give our guests the true Walla Walla experience.
We craft wines that we love to drink and that create memories! Josh is a huge fan of Old World winemaking techniques and every vintage reflects the care and thoughtfulness taken by winemakers of the past. From classic Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon to elegant Syrah, we let the grape speak for itself...allowing us to give you the truest expression of each varietal.
