Located in the Walla Walla Valley appellation of Washington State, Woodward Canyon Winery was started in 1981 by Rick Small and his wife, Darcey Fugman-Small.
Since that time, the winery has consistently produced premium, cellar worthy cabernet sauvignons, merlots, chardonnays and many other varietals. Early on Rick determined that quality would take precedence over quantity. Consequently, Woodward Canyon has remained small, increasing its production from 1,200 cases in 1981 to our current production of about 15,000 cases. About 7,000 of this total production is Nelms Road, Woodward Canyon’s second label.
Woodward Canyon is a founding member of the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance and of Walla Walla Valley Vinea, the Winegrower’s Sustainable Trust.
