When our dad/father-in-law, Clint Peck, presented the idea of building a winery in Montana in 2008-2009, we thought he was crazy. When he approached us about buying the winery years later, we thought we were crazy for considering it. If there is anything we've learned from Clint it's if you have a dream, and 99% of people think you're crazy... go for it!
Yellowstone Cellars & Winery has been handcrafting classic French and Italian style red and white wines since 2010. All of our grapes are hand-picked and sourced from family-owned vineyards located in the Yakima Valley of Washington. We believe that these are some of the finest grapes grown in the Pacific Northwest, if not in the United States. Great wines have to start with great grapes!
We transport all the grapes back to Billings 13 hours after picking, where we crush, de-stem, ferment, barrel age, and bottle, all on-site at our winery. Our focus has always been on the winemaking process and letting the Terroir of the grapes shine in our finished wines. This means healthy wines, with minimal intervention on our part.
We are proud to be a family-owned and operated business with deep Montana roots. We love to share our story and passion for wine with everyone who walks through our door. If you're in the area, feel free to visit our Tasting Room and sample any or all of our releases.
