Walla Walla Land Company

WWLC is s sustainable farming business that is committed to the highest viticulture standards for fine wine grape growing across our ranches in The Rocks District and greater Walla Walla Valley. In order to harness the sense of place that is possible within these distinctive wine appellations, we are dedicated to minimizing inputs and to farming in a way that promotes true terroir. Our decisions are guided by a belief in our stewardship of the land, as well as a strong commitment to the care of those who cultivate the vines. We endeavor to partner with vintners who share our vision of quality, integrity, and dedication to making remarkable wines that belong on the world stage and can stand the test of time.   

Our current properties reflect our dedication to heritage sites within the Rocks District and Walla Walla Valley. Wines made from our ranches have consistently received high critical acclaim and we seek to continue to innovate our farming and business practices to ensure our partners have access to the best fruit possible. 

The Rocks District of Milton Freewater AVA


La Mani Vineyard is situated in a warmer microclimate in the Northeast corner of the Rocks, River Rock’s terroir gives way to elegant wines with purity of fruit and a backbone of Rocks basalt that ensure a true sense of place without sacrificing texture or balance. Plantings include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Grenache, Viognier, Mourvedre, and Cinsault.


San Tommaso Vineyard (formerly Stone Valley Vineyard) was planted in 1996, making it one of the oldest in the Rocks District. This pioneering site is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec, and Tempranillo.

Formerly named Stone Valley Vineyard, we want to ensure that this site has ties to Tom Waliser in perpetuity. We recognize his contributions not only to our vineyard but, more broadly, to the entire Walla Walla Valley.

orselli vineyard

Orselli is our first, entirely WWLC planted site.  Orselli is dedicated to multiple clones and rootstock of Rhône-only varieties.  We employ several training methods and mini head trained vines to create wines of unique expression and undoubtable sense of place.  Orselli plantings include Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Viognier, Picpoul, and Rousanne.

This site is named after the Italian immigrant who, after coming to the US, signed up for the Army and was stationed at Fort Walla Walla. Then, after the Civil War, set up a grocery and winery in Walla Walla.  Orselli grew the first commercial wine grapes in the Valley.  


Farming is at the core of what we do. We do so with a persistent dedication to the land, water and people that make growing world class grapes possible in this place.

Walla Walla Valley AVA


Planted as “Pepper Bridge Vineyard” in 1991, Acavallo is considered a heritage Walla Walla Valley site. The soils are silt loam and very porous. The property is over 200 acres, with about 60 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, and Syrah. Tom Waliser has been farming this site since the beginning and utilizes sustainable and Salmon-Safe viticulture practices. 

This special vineyard has been home to many a top-scoring Washington wine, and has been the source of fruit for some of the most esteemed, longest-running brands in the Walla Walla Valley.

Purchased in 2022 by Walla Walla Land Company, Acavallo Vineyard continues to be farmed by Tom Waliser and his crew.

Acavallo means “on horseback,”   a reference to two local groups (in no particular order)—the native tribes who are expert horsemen, and the Nez Perce, in particular, who are still creating and raising new breeds; second, the area of Pepper’s Farm is nearby, and it was a low-lying spot where travelers on horseback could cross the Walla Walla River as they traveled from Fort Walla Walla to Fort Pendleton. Eventually, a bridge was constructed to cross the river, and Peppers Bridge got its name.
