L’Ecole regarded for wines of consistent quality

“…what has been proven beyond a doubt is that anyone who values tradition, continuity, and a track record of excellence, will eventually find their way to L’Ecole’s wines.  A lot of wineries succeed at making a few barrels of something good in their first or second vintage.  The real challenge is to make consistently fine wine, over many years and vintages, across a wide number of varietals and blends.”

-Paul Gregutt,
author, wine critic, columnist,
Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Seattle Times


L’Ecole regarded as a leading Walla Walla Valley winery

“Marty Clubb has built L’Ecole N° 41 into one of Walla Walla’s flagships…making wines that represent the region, the wines that signify Walla Walla.

-Patrick Comiskey,
Wine & Spirits Magazine


L’Ecole regarded internationally as a leading producer of Semillon

“…Semillon also has a relatively significant presence in Washington, were it often displays grassy, Sauvignon-like aromas, but is taken seriously by the likes of L’Ecole N° 41.”

- Jancis Robinson,
The Oxford Companion to Wine
