At Latah Creek our stylistic aim is to create wines that taste like the grapes from which they came. This is accomplished by using traditional winemaking principles and by the selection of exceptional fruit.Subjecting the wines to the least amount of processing and handling possible enables these natural varietal flavors to remain intact from grape to bottle.
Our major goal is to produce wines with natural balance and complexity, providing a perfect compliment to food and absolute enjoyment by themselves.
Latah Creek, heralded by Wine Spectator Magazine as one of the top producers of Merlot in the State of Washington, offers guests the opportunity to visit one of the most picturesque small wineries in the area. Tile walkways lead you through an arched entrance into a large courtyard suitable for picnics or just relaxing. Inside you will find a one-of-a-kind gift shop and a room-wide tasting bar. Latah Creek’s award winning wines can be sampled at your leisure while you tour the adjoining winemaking facilities. We cordially invite you to come and enjoy.
Latah Creek Wine Cellars
was established in 1982 in Spokane – a major metropolitan area in the Northeast corner of Washington State. The winery is one of only a few family owned and operated wineries within the State. Mike Conway, with over 34 years of winery experience, and his wife Ellena pair together to run one of the most successful small wineries in this relatively new viticultural region. While Mike assumes the management, winemaking and vineyard tasks, Ellena takes on the accounting, fiscal, tasting room, and gift shop responsibilities. Mike & Ellena announced in 2005 that their daughter Natalie would be joining the family business as the assistant winemaker.
