Boudreaux Cellars' Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, made from Washington's Walla Walla and Yakima Valley grapes, reflect the history and philosophy of Boudreaux Cellars' owner, Rob Newsom. Rob's career as a professional mountain climbing and river rafting guide is one of extreme physical and mental challenges, and of once in a lifetime experiences. Boudreaux Cellars' big, go-for-broke red wines are filled with spirit and drive, tempered by Rob's mellow Louisiana charm. Boudreaux's wines are full of gusto, for wine lovers who live life to its fullest.
Boudreaux Cellars is located next to Eight mile Creek in Icicle Canyon, a ten mile or so drive on a gravel road from the nearest road, near Leavenworth, Washington. In keeping with the agrarian traditions of the Taliaferro and Newsom families of Louisiana, winemaker Rob Newsom makes small amounts of Cabernet and Merlot with grapes sourced from the best Washington State vineyards: Bishop's, Champoux, Homestead, Pepper Bridge, Sagemoor, Seven Hills, Wallula, Celilo, Loess, Klipsun and Weinbau.
More About Boudreaux Cellars
A visit to Boudreaux Cellars is bound to be unforgettable. Whether it’s the Southern hospitality of Rob and Tamara Newsom, the stunningly beautiful location, or the unique “off the grid“ remoteness of the location, Boudreaux is pretty amazing even before you try the wines. Rob Newsom is an old friend and river rafting buddy of Gary Figgins, and his wines reflect the Leonetti style he learned from Gary. If the wines echo the Leonetti provenance, it might be because he gets grapes from the Leonetti Estate vineyard and uses the Figgin’s original grape press, loaned to Boudreaux by the winery.
Boudreaux's Rob Newsom focuses on smooth, deeply complex Cabernet Sauvignon with forays into Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese, Chardonnay and Semillon. The winery is named in honor of Boudreaux, the infamous Cajun folklore character known for his brilliant sense of humor and his pursuit of, yes sir, high adventure.
The 2007 Washington Wine Awards published in the April 2007 Seattle Magazine named Boudreaux Cellars the Best New Winery of the Year and Rob Newsom as the Best New Winemaker of the Year.
