Echolands Winery of Walla Walla, WA plans to open its new Mill Creek facility in time for fall 2023

New Winery, Hospitality Center Coming to Walla Walla Valley

Echolands Winery of Walla Walla, WA plans to open its new Mill Creek facility in time for fall 2023. The 341-acre site is located in the Mill Creek area of the Walla Walla Valley AVA in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, some of the highest elevations in Washington State.  

First announced in 2019, Mill Creek Road is the latest venture for co-owners Doug Frost, master of wine and master sommelier, and conservationist Brad Bergman, who also own Taggart Vineyard in the SeVein Water Project. Mill Creek Road will house a dedicated winemaking, hospitality and barrel facility, and will assume all production for Echolands wines. 

The development of Mill Creek Road is led by Soderstrom Architects and Mountain States Construction Company. As of fall 2023, production facilities will debut with a 27,000-square-foot winemaking facility and barrel room. It will also feature a hospitality center, the opening date of which will be announced later this year.
