“One of the truly great wineries of the Walla Walla Valley”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This place is certainly worth a visit, even if you're not a fan of wine. But if you are, you're in for a treat. The wines here reflect the best of this, the highest quality part of Washington State winemaking.

If you're really lucky, you'll meet Norita, who makes you feel as welcome as family!

“Amazing view”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

If you can only go to one winery in Walla Walla make it this one.  The setting is everything.  High up so that you can see the vineyards and the incredible estate you want to stay here all day.  Friendly, beautiful and great tastings make this a favorite site to visit in Walla Walla.  And...... they rent out the whole place for events, weddings and more for a very reasonable price compared to the Napa Valley which is much closer to where I live.  Do check it out. I read the other reviews after we went here and was very surprised. The staff was very friendly and we bought 2 bottles of their wine! Try it for yourself

“Waste of Time”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Worste winery experience in Walla Walla. The new ownership has ruined this place. We used to love it when Becky and Greg owned the winery. It was always so friendly. Now the new managment is rude and your treated as if your a nuisance for tasting. From now on I'll be buying their wine from the grocery store.

This is a must see estate! Drive in the gate, through the vineyard to the beautiful mansion estate. Worth the trip!

“Basel Cellars is tops of all Walla Walla Wineries”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

If you're considering wine tasting in Walla Walla, I highly recommend tasting and a tour at Basel Cellers Estate Winery. The estate is one of a kind and the staff is incredible. We received a warm reception from a very knowledgeable staff. The grounds and the vineyards were very impressive. I gave very high marks for their "Merriment", a red blend as well as the "Cabernet" and "Cab Franc". I've since found their "Claret" locally and always have bottles on hand. With my membership to their wine club, I am kept apprised of all special events and this winery has many. They treat their club members very well. What a great surprise in Walla Walla.
