During his career in the Air Force, Josh discovered a passion for wine and Jodi has always loved hosting parties (where there was always wine). Put the two together and a winery was born! 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 us in this adventure. The name itself, Smoky Rose Cellars, is an homage to our kids...Smoky (our dog) and Laurelai Rose (our daughter).
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 you the truest Walla Walla experience.
It is our mission as a boutique, family-owned winery to craft incredible wines that create long-standing experiences and memories for everyone we meet. Josh is a huge fan of Old World winemaking techniques and each 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.
