New Vancouver Wine Tasting Room with woman drinking Washington wine

“These wines are thoughtful, smartly made and have a uniqueness and sincerity of expression with a sense of place that is rewarding to the drinker.”

-Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The Style
Valo wines are designed to showcase the purity of Washington terroir with a focus on Bordeaux and Rhône varietals. We also make a few Burgundian-style Chardonnays and a Tempranillo Rosé you won’t want to stop drinking!
The Vineyards
Valo sources grapes from Lawrence Vineyards—including the well-known Conner Lee Vineyard. These vineyards are located in the Royal Slope area of Washington, a semi-arid desert found in the Columbia Valley. Valo is proud to use vineyard sources that practice sustainable farming techniques.
The Wine Maker
Matías Kúsulas served in the Chilean military for seven years — achieving the rank of lieutenant in the Naval Academy of Chile — prior to entering the University of Chile in 2005 and studying agricultural engineering with a focus on enology and viticulture. In 2016, he landed in Washington state after working a harvest in New Zealand. He has been the head viticulturist of Lawrence Vineyards on the Royal Slope since 2017 and is also the winemaker for Desert Wind.
The Chef
Michael Ruhland is the man behind the wine and food in our space. A chef at the Yellowstone Club for many years, his passion for creating wine pairing dinners led him to the realization he wanted to be creating his own wines and offering his own wine dinners. After meeting Matias in New Zealand while they were both working a harvest, they brought their expertise together to harness the beautiful terroir of the Royal Slope AVA in Washington’s Columbia Valley.
