THE WINERY: Beresan Winery is located about four miles south of Walla Walla, WA.

APPELLATION: Walla Walla Valley

BUILDING HISTORY: Originally built in 1926 as a two story barn to house the horses and dairy cows used on the farm. The barn was part of the Thomas Homestead, and locals still talk about their fathers and grandfathers breaking their horses at the Thomas Homestead barn. It was remodeled in 2001 to accommodate the Beresan Winery while still maintaining the original structure and historic character.

FRUIT SOURCES: All of the fruit for our wines comes from our three vineyards: our Estate Vineyard, Waliser Vineyard and Yellow Jacket Vineyard. Some fruit has also been used from Pepper Bridge, Summit View, and Candy Mountain, which are managed or farmed by Beresan's owner, Tom Waliser.

VARIETALS: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Viognier, Rose of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Carmenere, and Red Blends

THE BARN
The winery is housed in our renovated barn built in 1926. With the barn badly in need of repair, in 2001 we began our family's commitment to convert this majestic, historic building into a winery for Beresan.  Two years later, reconstruction was complete, and we opened our doors to the public for the first time on December 4th, 2003.

BARREL ROOM
Utilizing the west half of the barn, new meets old with our modern, climate-controlled barrel storage. The precise atmospheric controls and 22 months of storage in French oak barrels enable the wines to develop and finish to perfection. Also found in the winery is our production area for crushing, fermentation and additional storage for our bottled wines.
