Clint Peck - Owner & Winemaker
Our grapes are grown in Yakima Valley, WA vineyards and transported to Billings for "crush" within 24-36 hours of harvest.

More than a place....
"Small producers are the ones showing us the way to a greater wine goodness."
An article in "Wine Spectator" puts community-based "artisan" wineries like ours into perspective...
    "American wine drinkers increasingly are expecting to drink local. They expect to be able to visit their wineries... Not least, they expect to experience something different."

“you wouldn't expect this here” - Yellowstone Cellars is located in a warehouse neighborhood behind the Holiday Inn off of the King Ave/Mulowney Lane exit. I went with low expectations for the wine and have come away surprised. The wine is as good as many wines I've sampled in other wine tasting regions like Napa, Sonoma, Santa Barbara, Walla Walla, etc. This is a can't miss in Billings.

... tasting room is top notch. This place is a true gem, if you are in Billings, you really should stop there!

...wines are as good as, if not better, than any wines that I have enjoyed. All of his grapes come from Washington state and are pressed and fermented at his establishment. My wife and I are very impressed and plan on starting our next date night there. Great wine and great company is guaranteed!

The winery is simple, pleasant and informal. Clint's wines are not your run-of-the-mill wines. The grapes are grown in Washington and the background and training come from his brother & sister-in-law who own a winery there. Yellowstone's offerings run the gamut and all are good, but the Malbec is wonderful. The wines tend to be released a bit young--rack them and let them age a year. Wonderful! Bottles average in the $20 range.

~ Label Explanation ~
   You might notice as you look at our new labels that our 2011 vintage red wines have the designation "American" as opposed to "Washington" as the American Viticultural Area (AVA - see footnote below) that appears on our pre-2011 vintage labels.
   The reason: It has to do with federal labeling laws. Prior to the 2011 harvest I "produced" my wines at Dakota Creek Winery (owned by my brother and sister-in-law) located near Blaine, WA.  
Because the pre-2011 wines were produced in Washington, I was able to label them accordingly.
   But, since 2011 YC&W wines are being produced in Billings, Montana (even thought I'm processing Washington grapes) by federal law I can't specify "Washington" anywhere on the label.  Nor can I use "Montana" on the label because the grapes were not grown in Montana.
   Therefore, the only legal alternative for me at this point is to label our wines as "American" as the AVA.
Footnote: An American Viticultural Area (AVA) is a designated wine grape-growing region in the U.S. distinguishable by certain geographic features (i.e. "Napa", "Columbia Valley", "Washington", American, etc)  with boundaries defined by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), U.S. Department of Treasury.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GRAPES...
As many of you know, grape harvest is just around the corner. We're gearing up to make our first grape run about Sept 20. Our grape contracts are with vineyards located in the Yakima Valley of Washington. This region has gained tremendous respect worldwide for the quality of the fruit produced. We'll again harvest grapes from Lonesome Spring Ranch, Benton City;  Elephant Mountain Vineyards, Wapato; and Crawford Farms, Prosser.
 
Grapes Therefore, we were delighted to read a recent issue ofWine Press Northwest that chronicled 50 years of wine grape production in the Yakima Valley, calling it the "cradle of Washington wine."  The author went on to say: "Today, many of the state's most famous red wine grape vineyards are in the Yakima Valley, including Boushey, Ciel du Cheval, DuBrul, Elephant Mountain, Harrison Hill, Klipsun, Lonesome Spring, Olsen, Red Willow and Upland. These are stalwarts of the industry, vineyards that any winery is proud to proclaim on its label."  To learn more about grapes from this region click here -->

The Lyrics
"There Is A Time"
There is a time for love and laughter

The days will pass like summer storms
The winter winds will follow after
But there is love and love is warm.

There is a time for us to wander
When time is young and so are we
The woods are greener over yonder
The path is new, the world is green.

There is a time when leaves are falling
The woods are grey, the paths are old
The snow will come when geese are calling
You need a fire against the cold.

There is a time for us to wander
When time is young and so are we
The woods are greener over yonder
The path is new, the world is green.

So do you roamin’ in the springtime
And you find your love in the summer sun
The frost will come and bring the harvest
And you can sleep when day is done.

There is a time for us to wander

When time is young and so are we
The woods are greener over yonder
The path is new, the world is green
The path is new, the world is green.

Hello Wyoming!!!
Wyo
Our wines will soon be on the shelf at theLiquor store
 in Jackson Hole!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yellowstone Cellars & Winery recently signed a distribution agreement with Billings-based Intermountain Distributing Co.
    As many of you know, we've been ramping-up production here at the winery for the last two years. This distribution expansion follows the next step in my business plan by making our wines available throughout Montana.
    While this agreement expands our reach statewide, we're committed to retaining our local identity and our commitment to quality - from selecting and harvesting the best wine grapes available, to the details of fermentation, cellaring, aging and bottling.
    Meanwhile, our Tasting Room will be the usual wine outlet, offering our wines by the glass, bottle and case. It will also remain a social gathering venue where you can enjoy the fellowship of your friends and neighbors, host your activities and events, and experience
some of the best musical entertainment around!!!
