Washington State Wine Dinner

K Vintners With Kelly Smith

Walla Walla has been a regional agricultural hub for more than a century; and it still abounds with crisp apples, juicy strawberries, tender asparagus, sumptuous and sweet onions. Nearly 2,000 acres of prime vineyards and more than 100 remarkable wineries.

To make great wine requires outstanding grapes and winemaking and K Vintners located in the great state of Washington has both. These highly rated wines were first introduced in Ohio ten years ago and we were one of the first restaurants to feature them. We love these wines, as they are well made, fruit-forward and delicious and pair well with food.

Located at the base of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla Washington, K Vintners opened its doors to the public in 2001. The property where the winery sits was homesteaded in 1853. The winery grounds with Titus Creek owing through the lawn and the old pioneer planted trees, is a little slice of heartland Americana.

Charles Smith, proprietor, and winemaker came to Walla Walla after 11 years in Scandinavia. Originally from northern California, he has been involved with wine personally and professionally his whole life.

The Vineyards: K Vintners is producing wines from 2 distinctive viticultural zones: Wahluke Slope and Walla Walla Valley. Each of these areas is unique and with small lots of single vineyard Syrahs and eld blends of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Tempranillo, and Viognier, all of which are hand-picked, foot-stomped, fermented with naturally occurring yeasts and basket-pressed.
