A few years, some kismet connections, and a lot of hard work later, Kerloo Cellars is in the bottle.
When Ryan and Reneé Crane decided to follow the call leading them out of their secular urban life and into the Washington wine country, it was more than just a change of scenery, it was a leap of faith. Guided by little more than passion and a strong partnership, the Cranes uprooted from Seattle to make wine in Walla Walla.
Winemaker Ryan Crane has a varied history of involvement in the wine business ranging from distributor sales to annual volunteer shifts at harvest time. But it was Reneé's keen eye for business development that pushed over the domino, ultimately leading them to sell their first home in West Seattle, abandon jobs that underutilized them, and strike out on a new adventure in the spirit of following the call to do what they're supposed to do.
A few years, some kismet connections, and a lot of hard work later, Kerloo Cellars is in the bottle. The Crane's have never second guessed the choices they've made. And now, they're proud to invite you to enjoy a bottle of Kerloo, and let the spirit of following your own call wash over your palate, and into your life.
Sourcing from the best vineyards that keep the varietals' optimum growing conditions in mind and using minimal oak influence to showcase "a sense of place" from which the fruit is grown.
The influence and support of true luminaries in the Washington wine industry have propelled Ryan forward to where he has found himself today.
