If you’ve yet to try wines from Bergevin Lane Vineyards, here’s the capsulized version of what to expect: solid, dependable choices, good variety, and extremely reasonable prices.
Back that up with a boatload of accolades, awards and 90-plus ratings and you could hardly ask for more from a Walla Walla winery.
Annette Bergevin and Amber Lane (hence the name, Bergevin Lane) partnered with Gary Bergevin to form the winery in 2002, practically the Stone Age for the scores of Walla Walla wineries established in the last five years.
Annette is a seventh-generation Walla Walla native whom I’ve had the pleasure of knowing since nearly the winery’s inception. Without a doubt, she’s one of the nicest people in the industry and, along with her team headed by winemaker Dave Harvey, produces some truly memorable wines.
Here are my tasting notes on a handful of some of their current releases:
Bergevin Lane Vineyards wines are well-distributed in Whatcom County, including Seifert and Jones Wine Merchants in Bellingham. When in Walla Walla, a visit to the tasting room is a must. More information: bergevinlane.com.
