Leonetti Cellar

Leonetti Cellar was the first winery in Washington State to produce wines that earned acclaim from out-of-state collectors. Founded in 1977 by Gary Figgins, who still runs the winery with his wife and son, the Walla Walla Valley winery today includes 214 acres of vineyards planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Though Figgins had no formal training in winemaking when he and his wife started making wine in the 1970s, Figgins comes from a family of Italian immigrants who homesteaded in the Walla Walla Valley in the early 20th century. His grandparents served him diluted wine when he was a child, and his interest in winemaking was piqued in the 1970s when he visited Napa Valley. Leonetti’s signature wines are big, lush Cabs and Merlots and Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “no one on earth makes Cabernets and Merlots with quite the same panache as Gary Figgins…They are sexy, lush and boisterous.”
