288 Smokey Valley Road
Bateaux Cellars was founded in 2009 on 40 acres of forest and pasture. Located in Lewis County, Washington near the historic river town of Cowlitz Landing, long since washed away by the meandering Cowlitz River, and present day Toledo Washington.
Steve and Cheryl Padula, ardent wine explorers of the Pacific Northwest and the world, are the owners of Bateaux Cellars. Cheryl will most often meet you in our lovely tasting room. Steve continues to hone his winemaking skills under the tutelage of Marcus Miller, winemaker for Airfield Estates, and will happily give you a tour of the production area (and may even treat you to some barrel tasting!)
"We are committed to wine grape varietals grown in the Yakima AVA in central Washington. We believe this area consistently provides us with remarkable grapes on which to base our French style blends and single varietal wines."
With such a beautiful tasting room and peaceful, wide open surroundings, Bateaux is delighted to offer its space for public and private events. Small weddings, parties, family gatherings, corporate retreats. Whatever your needs, Lauren and Angelo Neroni, the winemaker's daughter and son-in-law would love to help you find the perfect fit for your next get together!
