Business partners Rick Wasem and Lynn DeVleming founded Basalt Cellars in 2003, with a shared passion of creating rock solid, age worthy wines. Their success was immediate with their 2004 Merlot winning “Double Gold” and “Best of Class” at Tri-Cities Wine Festival. Combined with our wine loving staff, Holly and Leisha, we have one primary mission: producing highly awarded and respected wines from the finest vineyards in Washington State. We hold long standing contracts with elite vineyards such as Bacchus, Weinbau and Willard, as well as our own estate vineyards which are located in the Lewis Clark Valley AVA.
Our preference for individual varietal characteristics to remain intact, begins with harvest and continues throughout the entirety of the winemaking process. Red wines are aged in primarily French oak barrels for 18 to 30 months before bottling, and then cellared and released at perfection when the winemaker is satisfied that the wine is ready. Rick’s 35 year wine making expertise, and pharmacy background have shown to be the recipe for Basalt’s ultra-premium wines.
