A love for wine has been in my family long before I was born. My ancestors viewed wine as simply an essential part of daily life. Sanitella, my great grandmother, knew each family in her small Italian neighborhood by their homemade wine. For her, a person’s very character was built on the quality of their craft. Now, with Caprio Cellars, I hope to honor the tradition my family has had with wine for over a century. I hope that you will become a part of the Caprio family and enjoy what for me is so elemental to the joy of life. Welcome to Caprio Cellars.
Generation after generation we’re drawn to tuning in our senses to the elements. Earth, water, minerals, and sun combine effortlessly. It keeps us connected to the craft and to each other.
The sharing and appreciation of wine brings together fellowship, the senses, and discernment. Refining one’s appreciation of wine over time in a social setting is a unique, wonderful experience we’ve been drawn to over three generations like bees to honey.
For 16 years, Dennis has been a builder of homes throughout the Northwest. Splitting his time between Bend, Oregon and Walla Walla, Washington has afforded him the pleasure of living in and around the finest wine-making regions in the Northwest. As a passionate wine lover, he watched Walla Walla officially affirm its place as one of the premier wine producing regions in the world, and was more than eager to become a part of its fast-emerging tradition. With the help of many hardworking people who share the same passion for great wine, he built another kind of home: Caprio Cellars.
We’ve all come together surrounding a common passion. Hard work goes into our fields, tasting room, and everywhere else, but some days go by effortlessly nonetheless. We love what we do.
