Winery Biography:

L’Ecole No 41 is a second generation, family-owned artisan winery located in the historic Frenchtown School depicted on our label. Founded in the Walla Walla Valley in 1983, L’Ecole has become one of the most prominent and visible Washington State wineries with national and international distribution. As a traditional brick and mortar winery we are engaged in growing and making 100% of our own wines. Our focus is on terroir-driven, distinctive and expressive wines. This is achieved by our nearly thirty years of winemaking experience combined with dedicated, long-term relationships with some of the oldest and most proven vineyards in the Walla Walla and Columbia Valleys. Today, we are at the forefront of sustainable farming in the Walla Walla Valley, notably with our Estate Seven Hills and Ferguson Vineyards.   All of our Walla Walla Valley wines are made from grapes sourced from vineyards which are certified sustainable and Salmon Safe. L’Ecole has garnered national and international accolades over the years for producing superior quality wines. One of which we are most proud, being honored eleven consecutive years by Wine & Spirits Magazine as a Winery of the Year, and becoming the second Washington winery inducted into its prestigious Hall of Fame.
