Founded in 2013, Lagana Cellars is a Walla Walla Valley boutique winery producing Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Their primary goal is to create terroir-driven wines with varietal character and elegance. While touring the heart of downtown Walla Walla, duck into their intimate tasting room and enjoy some of their luscious reds and crisp, clean whites.
Not always focused on wine, Jason and Todd come from backgrounds rooted in the fields of arts and sciences. Jason studied anthropology and astrophysics at Indiana University Bloomington before graduating from Walla Walla Community College’s Enology and Viticulture program. Todd majored in drawing and photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, where he earned his BFA. Todd’s path toward wine began in 1997 when his father, Rich Bernave, was hired by Walla Walla Vintners as one of their first employees. Jason’s passion for wine was cultivated through his culinary experiences and love of food. Together, Jason and Todd formed a partnership anchored by four basic tenets: food, family, friends, and wine.
