About Us

L’Ecole N° 41 is a third-generation family-owned, artisan winery located in the historic Frenchtown School depicted on our label. Founded in 1983, we were the third winery established in the Walla Walla Valley. We have become one of the most prominent and visible Walla Walla Valley wineries with national and international distribution.

Our focus is to produce ultra-premium, distinctive wines that reflect the unmistakable typicity of Washington State and the unique terroir of our Walla Walla Valley vineyards. Each bottle is handcrafted with a commitment to quality in the vineyards and the winery. More than four decades of winemaking experience, ongoing investments in our Walla Walla Estate Ferguson and Seven Hills Vineyards, and long-term relationships with many of the most prominent vineyards in Washington State are central to our well-known reputation for quality and consistency across our wine portfolio.

Growing & Operating Practices

L’Ecole No 41 is a leader and active proponent of the growing sustainable farming program in the Walla Walla
Valley. VINEA (The Winegrower’s Sustainable Trust) is a voluntary group of Walla Walla Valley winegrowers
pursuing sustainability in the valley. VINEA works with Oregon’s LIVE (Low-Input Viticulture and Enology) to
provide internationally accredited third-party certification to winegrowers in the Pacific Northwest, one of the
highest certifications in the world for sustainable viticulture.
Sustainability is particularly relevant in the field of viticulture where the vineyard is seen as a large integrated
farm, where plant, animal and microbial life, aided by soil and water quality, contribute to the overall health of
the environment and therefore the development and quality of the crop. Protecting the health of the vineyard’s
soil and surrounding environment is intrinsic to enhancing terroir.
All of L’Ecole’s Estate wines are Certified Sustainable and Salmon Safe
