Latah Creek Wine Cellars Unveils New Label and Product Offerings

Established in 1982, Latah Creek Wine Cellars is one of only a few family-owned and operated wineries in the state. Latah Creek currently produces 12 different wines, with 60% of their production directed towards their most popular wines: Riesling and Huckleberry d'Latah. Latah Creek is also known for their red wines, and was recognized by Wine Spectator Magazine as one of the top producers of Merlot in the State of Washington.

To further enhance their wine portfolio, Latah Creek is introducing a Sweet Riesling to their product line, as well as an increase in their Moscato production. Both these white wines will reach the market this summer and will be available in stores that currently carry the Latah brand. In addition a new red wine, Malbec, is slated for release this fall. The introduction of these wines piggybacks on the launch of the new Latah Creek Wine Cellars label (featured below).

Latah Creek will also be launching a new cookbook, the third in a series featuring recipes by Ellena. Ellena Conway, co-owner and wife of Latah Winemaker, Mike Conway, currently features her recipes on the Latah Creek website and her upcoming food blog. This new cookbook is due out later this summer.

To commemorate their 31st year, Latah Creek Wine Cellars is having an anniversary sale from July 20th -31st. Stop by their picturesque Spokane Valley location (13030 E. Indiana Ave., Spokane, WA 99216) during the anniversary sale and receive 20% to 40% off all wine cases and 20% off all food and gifts.

Latah Creek is open 7 days a week, from 9a.m. - 5p.m., and provides a unique tasting experience. Guests can relax in the courtyard, shop the one of a kind gift shop and taste one of the new wines or enjoy an old favorite.
