Most recently voted Clark County's Best In Three Distinctive Categories Including Live Music Venue, we are your only SW Washington Winery that you can "Rock out with the Cork out" as you enjoy your favorite rock tunes, dancing, and of course good wine.
East Fork Cellars was founded to create wines the people like and want to drink. Our focus is on creating wine blends of exceptional character whether young or old, our old world techniques bring vibrant flavor to the forefront. We believe in capturing the flavor from the vine to the wine here at East Fork Cellars. Sure, sometimes letting a wine age a little is a good idea, but we think wine should be enjoyable while you and the wine are both still young!
The Vineyard East Fork Cellars derives its name from the East Fork of the Lewis River. The land that our vineyard is located on drains into this major North Clark County waterway. In 2000, emboldened by boundless enthusiasm, and a conviction that SW Washington could produce wines of unique character, along with old world wine making sensibilities and tradition, East Fork Cellars planted Dijon French clone varietals of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay on their property north of Battle Ground WA. With the growing conditions similar to that of the Burgundian region of France, the enhanced terrior created by the great Missoula floods, and volcanic events over the millenium, Southwest Washington has the ability to product outstanding fruit from traditional Burgundian grape varieties.
Winners of the first locally grown Pinot Noir in SW Washington that won medals in the largest and longest running wine competition in the the NW, (Tri Cities Wine Competition & San Francisco's "Pinot Shootout",) EFC is proudly becoming a Blend Mastering winery with an ever expanding portfolio of big bold reds. EFC also offers a handful of other whites: Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, & Viognier round out the lighter selection.
