Taking Care of Each Other


Vital Wines produces wines that complete a circle.  All profits go to the SOS Clinic, a free, non-profit health care clinic in the Walla Walla area dedicated to helping people get the healthcare that they both need and deserve with no questions asked.  Winemaking and vineyard work is both physical and seasonal, making it a prime industry for this kind of care. At Vital, it is not only our mission to close this loop, but also our pleasure.  Those that provide us with beautiful wines throughout the Walla Walla valley can get better and free healthcare and those of us who bring these wines home can do so with pleasure on the palate and the soul.  

Thank you,

Ashley Trout; Winemaker and Tim Doyle; Assistant Winemaker

Donation Partners

Practically every part of our winemaking process has been made possible by donations, including both raw materials and services. The outpouring of donations, help, support and ideas have been welcome and heart-warming. Many of our donors have requested to remain anonymous but we do like to give credit where we can.

We are so pleased to be working with the following vineyards. They have donated their land, their resources, their fruit, their water and their staff:

Eritage Vineyard

French Creek Vineyard

Frenchman Hills Vineyard

Firethorn Vineyard

Inland Desert Nursery

Klipsun Vineyard

Larry's Vineyard

Patina Vineyard

Quintessence Vineyard

Red Heaven Vineyard

Seven Hills Vineyard

Summit View Vineyard

In order to not tax donation partners too strenuously, we are starting small and growing slowly. Because of this, and the overwhelming generosity of the valley, we have had to turn down donated fruit. We believe that this bears mentioning twice- we are turning down donated fruit because we can't handle the generosity. Thank you so much to the growers of the Walla Walla Valley and the Rocks District of Milton Freewater AVA for their enthusiasm for this project.
