THE WINERY AND TASTING ROOM

The Winery
Watermill winery is located in the historic Watermill Building, built in 1944 and located in Milton-Freewater Oregon in the Walla Walla Valley. A former fruit packing plant for the Watermill Food CO., the thick walls, partially underground construction and high ceilings keep the building naturally cool and make the structure the perfect venue for fermenting and storing wine. All production of Watermill wines are done on site from our estate grapes, and our winemaking staff utilizes top of the line fermentation equipment and barrels to ensure the highest quality during all stages of production. The winery currently has a fermentation capacity for 22,000 cases, barrel storage for more than 1500 barrels in our cellar and onsite warehouse storage for 50,000 cases. Its not all work at the winery however, as the Taproom for Blue Mountain Cider and game room are both located in the winery building.

As the former office building for the Watermill Food CO., the tasting room still utilizes many of the original features included in the buildings 1940s art-deco construction, including the original vault which is now used to store Watermill’s library wines. Upon entry you will find a modern and welcoming tasting space that can accommodate groups large and small.
