Owner description: The combination of art and wine is the foundation upon which Foundry Vineyards is built. Founders Mark and Patty Anderson focused their vision on formulating a unique experience, which expands the dialog about the creative processes that underlie the making of art and wine. There is a distinct aesthetic to each aspect of the winery from the art-driven Artisan labels and the gallery-like tasting room to the spare, urban feel of the adjacent contemporary sculpture garden. The award winning wines we produce are forged with a combination of our estate grown fruit and small lot production. Each hand crafted wine is overseen from the vine to the bottle and rigorously selected from our best lots. This procedure allows the wines to mature to their full potential and showcases our philosophy of quality over quantity.

Reviewed 11 August 2012

As others have stated, this is a one-of-a-kind wine tasting experience in WaWaWa. Squire Broel was an outstanding friendly and informative host to our party of eight (and served us on short notice). The space and courtyard are amazing. The art/sculptures are world-class. And the wines are top notch. This is a don't miss.

“Wine + Art = Fun”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

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.
