COMMENTS

Our father, Cliff Kontos is affectionately know as “The Boss” by those who have known him over the years.  He has consistently been the inspiration and benchmark in our life.  Cliff introduced us to the world of wine when he co-founded Fort Walla Walla Cellars in 1998 where Cameron quickly fell in love with the creative art that is winemaking.

“The Boss” is a fusion of passion, style, and creativity between Cliff and Cameron, as they set out to make a premier Bordeaux wine, together.  It is currently resting on some beautiful tight grain French oak, where it will remain for a total of three years.  We are using the solera method, where each wine is blended into the following vintage, giving our daughters the opportunity to someday make wine with the same juice that their grandfather had a hand in making.

We have used our dad’s cattle brand (rocking CK) on the bottle as a tribute to the hard work and dedication he put into his career and family, long before the wine industry truly took hold in the Walla Walla Valley.

Each magnum comes with a beautifully crafted box.  On Fall Release weekend, we have a branding party, where you can pick your Boss up, and put fire to the pine by branding the box yourself.
