During our visit to Pepper Bridge Winery in Walla Walla, they told us about their sister winery Amavi Cellars. We were really excited to learn that Amavi was just down the street and decided to check it out.
Amavi Cellars is so worth a visit! It is absolutely gorgeous with an amazing view over the valley.
Amavi Cellars, Walla Walla Winery
Amavi Cellars has a $5 tasting fee that is refunded with a purchase. You can enjoy a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the valley. They also have a food truck that comes in on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with amazing food.
The $5 tasting fee includes 3 wines for tasting. Sometimes they may have 4 wines if there is a club wine available or depending on the time of year.
Amavi Cellars Wines are distributed to 36 states and very easy to find in the Pacific Northwest. If you fall in love with a bottle of wine there is a good chance you can find it in your area. The Amavi Cellars website shows their distribution by state if you are looking for a specific variety.
Amavi is a combination of the Latin words for love (amor) and life (vita). We pronounce it “ahh muh vee.”

Varietals Produced: Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (They also make small quantities of other wines for tasting room)

What a beautiful location to visit and learn more about wine.
Gosh, the setting is so beautiful. I don't drink wine, but I could spend all day with those views.

Wow! That looks amazing. My husband and I love to visit wineries. If we make it to Walla Walla we will love checking this one out in person!
