L’Ecole N° 41 is a second generation, family-owned artisan winery located in the historic Frenchtown School depicted on our label. Founded in 1983, we are the third oldest winery in the Walla Walla Valley. We have become one of the most prominent and visible Walla Walla Valley wineries with national and international distribution.

As a traditional brick and mortar winery, we are engaged in growing and making 100% of our wines. Our focus is on terroir-driven, distinctive, and expressive wines. This is achieved by our over thirty years of winemaking experience combined with dedicated, long-term relationships with some of the oldest and most proven vineyards in the Walla Walla and Columbia Valleys.

Today we are at the forefront of sustainable farming in the Walla Walla Valley, notably with our Estate Ferguson and Estate Seven Hills vineyards. All of our Walla Walla Valley wines are made from grapes sourced from vineyards which are certified sustainable and Salmon Safe. L’Ecole has garnered national and international accolades over the years for producing superior quality wines. One of which we are most proud, being honored thirteen consecutive years by Wine & Spirits Magazine as Winery of the Year, and becoming the second Washington winery inducted into its prestigious Hall of Fame.

Our host, Ben was outstanding in hospitality. We received several acknowledgments to out appointment and he took us through the Walking tour. The hospitality, wine and setting were all excellent. We especially liked the Apogée from Pepper Bridge Vineyard.

We had an amazing experience at L'Ecole No 41! It was our first stop on our Walla Walla tour and a great introduction to wines in the area. Chris was our tourguide and was incredibly knowledgeable. He answered all our questions and shared great info about the history of the winery and the area. We would say this is a must stop when exploring Washington wine country.

Fabulous! Everything I could've hoped for: winery history, a good rundown of the terroir, barrel samples, and of course tasty wine.
