Whether it’s conversation or dinner, these wines will undoubtedly pair well.
Brook & Bull wines are hand-crafted from vine to bottle, made with small fruit lots sourced from carefully tended vineyards . From alcohol to acid, phenolics to tannin, balance is always our goal. Our reds tend to age nicely through year eight, while whites and rosés trend closer to the three to four-year mark.
We are a 2,000-case winery located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Walla Walla Valley, situated on the famed Southside in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. With sweeping views, vineyard vistas and hugged by historic wheat fields, our tasting room is a lovely spot to spend the afternoon. The long days, never-ending sunsets, and cool nights that grace this gorgeous land lend themselves to both legendary grape growing as well as an amazing experience sipping wine on our patio. Join us.
Brook trout, much like winemaker Ashley Trout, are native to the East Coast; whereas bull trout, like our nation’s best wines, thrive in the Pacific Northwest. Both thrive in the harshest of conditions, much like the best wine grapes, Brook & Bull Cellars is the confluence. Welcome to the best of both worlds.
Formally March Cellars, Brook & Bull has been producing wine since 2014. Ashley has been an integral part of the Washington wine community since the 90’s, working at a variety of locations in Walla Walla and South America. This is her third winery. Brook & Bull is the latest and greatest.
Our tasting room is open daily, holidays excluded. Join us at 1249 Lyday Lane Walla Walla, Washington 99362 or call if you have questions at 509-563-2191. We’d love to pour you some wines.
Cheers, The Brook & Bull Crew
Ashley began her wine making career at 18, following her passions around the world in search of the best ways to combine a love of wine making with a goal for community betterment. She spent the better part of a decade working harvests in Mendoza, Argentina and has been an integral part of the Walla Walla Valley wine scene since 1999.
After an eight year stint at Reininger Winery, she began Flying Trout Wines in 2006 where she focused exclusively on malbec and malbec driven blends. She sold Flying Trout in 2010, staying on as winemaker for another five years with a one-year hiatus to be with her two young children. In 2016 she launched Vital Wines and March Cellars (now known as Brook & Bull).
Our sister winery Vital Winery is a non-profit, with proceeds supporting Walla Walla Valley vineyard and winery workers access to affordable health care. For more information on this label, feel free to visit the VITAL WEBSITE.
Ashley has two children, a wonderful husband, two dogs and now, Brook & Bull Cellars.
