Our Tasting Room

Experience our laid back atmosphere


Education paved the path to success for Clearwater Canyon Cellars. Coco, our winemaker, capped her formal education with a doctorate degree studying wine microbiology. Karl, our vineyard manager, studied soil science as it relates to agriculture and soil nutrition. They work together each day toward the goal of producing ultra-premium wines from the Lewis Clark Valley and select vineyards within the greater Northwest. We are inspired to bring notoriety back to the valley as a world-renowned area for growing wines.
