A WINE JOURNEY THROUGH WASHINGTON
In 2012, Napa vintner Dennis Cakebread embarked upon a new Washington wine project. Drawn to the high-quality wines and the camaraderie of the Walla Walla community, he set out to make a singular Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon-based red wine that embodies both the rich history and terroir of the Northwest. The result of this exploration is Mullan Road Cellars.
MEET MULLAN ROAD
In the late 1850’s, John Mullan and 200 workers built the 600-mile-long Mullan Road, the first wagon road into the Pacific Northwest over the Continental Divide. This historic road runs through Walla Walla wine country where our wine is crafted each year. With each vintage, Washington winemaker Aryn Morell creates bold yet elegant wines to celebrate that pioneering spirit. Watch this video to learn our story.
OUR WASHINGTON STATE CABERNET
Mullan Road Cellars concentrates on one wine each vintage: A Cabernet-based red Bordeaux blend. We farm grapes from two vineyards in the newly established Royal Slope AVA, showcasing the intense fruit quality of the region. Each vintage since we started in 2012 has scored over 90 points from respected wine publications like Wine Advocate, Vinous, and Wine Spectator.
