For Wines Above the Rest

Zerba Cellars is an Oregon winery located in the heart of the Walla Walla Valley. We produce approachable, food friendly wines that showcase the fruit without compromising the wine’s structure and overall balance. We have three estate vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley. Each was planted to take advantage of the Walla Walla Valley’s unique soil types and elevations. Our Jon Cockburn Ranch Vineyard is located in the Southeast corner of the valley, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Dad’s Vineyard is located in the “Touchet Beds”, near the state line. Winesap Road Vineyard is located in the rocky floodplain of the Walla Walla River.

Our WINES

Zerba Wine Cellars in Walla Walla Valley Milton-Freewater, Oregon

There is more to Oregon wine than Pinot Noir

Red Wines

The Walla Walla Valley’s warm weather and unique soils present ideal growing conditions for a wide array of wine grapes and styles. Here at Zerba Cellars, we cultivate 15 different red varieties across three estate vineyards; each of which representing a distinct mesoclimate within the Walla Walla Valley. Our high altitude Cockburn Vineyard produces reds of remarkable intensity and structure without sacrificing finesse. Reds grown at our Winesap Vineyard, located in The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, are earth-driven and savory. Dad’s vineyard, our coolest site, is all about elegance and bright, nervy acidity. From hardy and bold to elegant and structured, with this robust selection you are sure to find a red to love.

White Wines

Here at Zerba Cellars, we take full advantage of our Cockburn Vineyard’s high elevation and the Walla Walla Valley’s wide diurnal shift (the temperature difference between daytime highs and nighttime lows) to produce white wines of exquisite ripeness and elegance. Warm days produce juicy stone fruit and subtle tropical flavors while cool nights maintain acidity and balance. Our 5 white varietals are easy-drinking yet age-worthy and offered at a great value.

Dessert Wines

Our portfolio of dessert wines is constantly shifting. We prefer to let the conditions of the vintage dictate which style of dessert wine we make that year. In warm years, we tend to produce a port-style wine in which we use our own brandy to arrest fermentation thereby leaving a delightful amount of sweetness in the final wine. If the end of the vintage is long and dry, expect to see a late-harvest white wine in our lineup the following spring. We’ve even been known to produce the occasional icewine when conditions allow. With so many exciting options, keep checking in to see what kind of liquid delight we have crafted.
