Tucked into Walla Walla’s Airport region is Adamant Cellars – Pouring Bordeaux blends, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon & bubbles!
When you set foot into Adamant Cellars in Walla Walla’s airport district you are actually entering what, at one point, was an old mess hall and aircraft maintenance building of the Walla Walla Army Air Base. Today, it looks nothing like that. The walls of Adamant Cellars are painted in a shade of robins egg blue, the rustic wood floors make you feel like you’re in an old log cabin, and there is a fireplace along the wall – All setting the scene for what is about to be a cozy wine tasting.
We’ve been to Adamant Cellars twice now. On our first visit, we were greeted by owner Debra Stinger, and on our second visit, Debra’s husband, winemaker/owner Devin Stinger was there to pour us their lovely wines. The two founded Adamant Cellars in 2006 and their ever-expanding lineup has some unique varieties that you’re not going to find at every tasting room in Walla Walla – Albarino, Tempranillo and a rosé sparkling wine being among them. There’s also a Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cabernet Franc that are not to be missed.
The Albarino, Syrah, Tempranillo and sparking rosé have all found their way into our rapidly growing wine cellar.
I basically want to live in their tasting room – Besides all the amazing wine, I just love all the artwork hanging in the tasting room. And, it’s all created by Debra herself! Whimsical, hand-sketched pieces featuring woodland creatures like deer, squirrels and birds. She also creates some clay pieces and amazing jewelry…
Definitely make a stop in the next time you’re in Walla Walla for amazing wines, great company and a relaxed tasting experience.
Adamant Cellars is located at 525 E. Cessna Avenue, Walla Walla, Washington and is open daily from 11am – 5pm.
