LATTA Wines

Basic Info

Latta Wines seeks to put uncommon varietals from the most unique vineyards in Washington State on center stage. Years of scouring the geologically diverse soils of Eastern Washington led to an initial release of two very special wines. The extremely small production offerings are put forward from sustainable vineyard sites after fermentation with native yeast, and aging in french barrique and puncheon. Latta Wines was founded in 2011 by winemaker and owner Andrew Latta. The product of 10 years of sweat equity as a cellar hand who worked his way to winemaker at a notable Washington winery, Andrew is proud to release his personal wines to you. Born and raised in Kentucky, the restaurant world was his path to wine. A similar trajectory up from the basement as a busser to a Sommelier working in Thailand exposed him to the wines of world. While developing award-winning wine programs, Washington State stood out among all the emerging and traditional wine-growing regions. So, sight unseen, more than a decade ago he jumped into his first harvest in Walla Walla and year after year Washington keeps delivering.
