Vintner Tasting with.... Marie-Eve Gilla, founder and managing partner of Forgeron Cellars in Walla Walla will be here April 26 to present her current wine releases. Marie-Eve was here a few years ago and gave one of the best winemaker presentations I have ever witnessed. I can't imagine this year's event would be anything less.
Marie-Eve was born and raised in Paris but earned her wine "chops" at the University of Dijon. She received a Double Master's Degree in Viticulture and Oenology which means she not only knows how to cultivate and select the best grapes, she can make them into the best wine when those grapes are harvested. She has earned honors in France and Washington State for her work in the wine industry for the last 25 years working with the world's best sustainable growers. The result is complex age-worthy wines that express Washington's full potential. Her 15 year history of 90+ point ratings speaks to the high quality of her skill and the consistency of her work.
Her blend of the Old World traditions of regular visits to the vineyards to monitor the canopy, water levels and cluster development set the stage for her winemaking. Forgeron wines are made from hand-picked grapes and gentle, natural winemaking techniques. Her modern approach includes small lots and temperature controlled fermentations with extensive quality control practices in each step from crush to bottling.
