Coming Soon - - Kontos Cellars!

Cameron Kontos shares some exciting news with me! Cameron and brother Chris will soon be opening their new winery, Kontos Cellars. The winery will be located in a new building at the Port of Walla Walla winery incubators at the airport. They are hoping to be in their brand-new winery later this summer.

Their wines will be bottled under two different labels - Kontos and LeeVeLooLee. Single varietals such as Merlot and Syrah will be under the Kontos label and blends will be bottled with the LeeVeLooLee label. Both labels adorn the beautiful dragonfly. To celebrate the new opening, the LeeVeLooLee Gossamer White may be released at the same time and later the Alatus Blend will be released in December. This winery is off to a good start and has some good roots planted as Cliff Kontos, father of Chris and Cameron, is co-owner of Fort Walla Walla Cellars and Cameron is the assistant for Marie-Eve Gilla, winemaker at Forgeron Cellars (with teachers, like Marie and Cliff, the Kontos brothers are bound to have great wines). Stay tuned for future plans!
