This Italian proverb, from which we take our name, means when you go slowly, you go safely and you go far. At Va Piano, we’re all about slowing down and enjoying the best of life: family, friends, shared stories and laughter, good food and of course, great wine.

Every bottle of Va Piano captures the best characteristics of the region; we focus on small lot Cabernet Sauvignons, Syrahs and red blends from our Walla Walla Valley estate vineyards, as well as fruit from other premier growers in the Columbia Valley.

Va Piano produces elegant, balanced wines, focusing on Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, as well as very limited bottlings of Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. We also produce a full flight of Bruno’s, and the OX red wine blend.

After a hot, tumultuous 2015 that produced some great wine, 2016 was a return to a more normal vintage. The growing season was a bit cooler and allowed us to hang the grapes a little longer to achieve perfect ripeness without sacrificing any character. Everything started pretty perfectly in the spring and continued through, giving us our largest crop to date. Despite the increased yields, the long season allowed us to take in grapes that produced wine with incredible depth and grace. Fall rains held out until the very end, as we were taking in the last of our grapes, so we were mostly unaffected by any weather event this year. The result is immediate drink-ability in all of our wines, but the wine in the bottle will continue to mature for as long as your patience can hold out.
