When you spend a few days visiting wineries, the visits can kind of start to blur together - not in the "oh, I've had too much to drink" sense of blur, but the sense of similarity among many of the wineries and tasting rooms. Our visit to Foundry was one of three winery experiences that really stood out for us (in a good way).
The tasting room is in town, near the foundry; makes sense since Foundry Vineyard was started by the owner of Walla Walla Foundry, Mark Anderson, and Squire Broel, an artist who began his career as a patineur at the foundry. The tasting room includes a large gallery space and sculpture garden. All three areas feature original art well worth a visit on its own.
We met and spent time talking with Squire Broel, the artist/co-owner, and Ali Mayfield, the winemaker. The wines we tasted were very good; Foundry doesn't make a lot of wine or a lot of different types of wine, and what they make is special. Ali and Squire were interesting, informative and fun to spend time with. We left with some of their wine and hope to repeat the whole happy experience in the future.
