True Washington CharacterTM
Lauren Ashton Cellars controls the complete winemaking process from “Vine to Cork” attributing to some of the most distinctive and elegant new world wines applying traditional winemaking methods.
The Vine: Prudently Selected Growers & Paramount Vineyard Sites
Lauren Ashton Cellars selects paramount vineyard sites and top independent growers throughout Washington State appellations, giving our winemaking team access to the highest-caliber fruit to make wines of the finest quality always utilizing the best vineyard practices. Believing that wine starts in the vineyard, we strive to obtain perfect fruit that, once harvested, is delivered to the winery with only the most delicate touches. We continually strive to manage the quality and flavor of the grapes so that they exhibit all the qualities and complexities that our winemaker is looking for.
The Winery: Traditional Winemaking Methods & Technologically Advanced Equipment and Techniques
Lauren Ashton Cellars, a winery noted for crafting artisanal wines, implements labor-intensive traditional winemaking methods with new world state of the art technologically, advanced winemaking equipment and techniques. Our fine wines show a depth of distinctive flavors, complexity and richness that dances in the glass and on your palate.
At the winery, under the direction of winemaker Kit Singh, balance, precision and quality are of the utmost importance. Kit and his dedicated team gently shepherd the grapes through the fermentation process to the bottle using a light-handed, non-invasive, and sustainable process allowing each bottle to emulate the essence of the vineyard.
The winery uses all French barrels, using oak as a seasoning, not as a club. Our barrels are topped monthly with each barrel carefully monitored through the entire maturation process. Being a dental professional by trade, Kit is ardent about adhering to strict sanitary procedures and sterilization processes throughout the winery.
The Cork: Crowning our Allegiance to Excellence
No detail goes overlooked in our pursuit of excellent wine, and that includes cork quality. Lauren Ashton Cellars uses high-quality natural cork as our closure of choice for our fine wines.
Our quest for quality is the foundation for all winemaking decisions at Lauren Ashton Cellars.
