Tranche Cellars

“It’s about being true and authentic to the classic styles of wines in the world.

Throughout our Estate Vineyards, we cultivate a diverse collection of some of the world’s most interesting grape varietals.”

Lauri Corliss

Our complete lineup of Tranche wines is sliced into three different series:  our ‘Rhone Series’, our ‘Mediterranean Series’ and our ‘Estate Series’.

Rhone Series

Grapes native to France’s Rhône Valley are the focus of our ‘Slice of Pape’ program – our homage particularly to the blended wines of the Southern Rhône. Slice of Pape, Slice of Pape Blanc, and Pink Pape (our dry rosé) are crafted from the best of these traditional varietals. Separately and together, they offer you a New World expression of these classic Old World wines. We include in our Spring release our Pinot Gris as it is the perfect complement to the menus of Spring and Summer, and ideal for sipping on the deck.

Mediterranean Series

In our ongoing efforts to expand our reach with other varietally-focused wines, we look to grapes whose origins are within the Mediterranean region. Again the goal is to express the traditional characteristics of each varietal, capturing the essence in each wine’s distinctive aromas and flavors. We invite you to explore these special wines that have been inspired by the Mediterranean standard-bearers.

Estate Series

And finally, the cornerstones of our portfolio, we produce limited quantities of varietal wines, each focusing on a single grape. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah express the terroir of our Blue Mountain Estate Vineyard in Walla Walla. The Chardonnay comes from our Celilo Vineyard in the Columbia Gorge AVA, renown for growing the finest Chardonnay in Washington State. In these wines you can taste the grape’s unique character – its aromas, flavors, texture and detail.
