About ElegantÉ Cellars

Our specialties are our red wines, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Malbec and Syrah. These wines are on the softer, smoother and richer side. All of our wines are 100% pure varietal. We also produce a dry Gewürztraminer and an after dinner Strawberry wine.

Eleganté Cellars, owned, managed and operated by Doug Simmons, is one of the newer wineries at the airport complex.

Doug Simmons, a retired, high school chemistry teacher, is our winemaker. He received a Certificate of Viticulture and an AA degree in Enology and Viticulture from Walla Walla Community College. In 2005 – 2006 he helped the Huse family at Five Star Cellars, where, with their assistance, he also started making his first wine.

With the experience of working in the WWCC winery, Doug designed his own winery, supervised its construction and opened its doors in September of 2007. The focus at Eleganté Cellars is in low production, high quality, and handcrafted wines. Doug personally selects the best vineyards and grapes that are used in Eleganté wines. During the past several years he has won dozens and dozens of medals for his wines.


Elegante WinesOur Sangiovese grapes are sourced from Blue Mountain vineyard. The Merlot grapes are grown at Seven Hills vineyard. Our Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah and Tempranillo are harvested at Les Collines which is in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, southwest of Walla Walla. And our Gewürztraminer grapes come from Celilo Vineyard’s over 35 year old vines in the Columbia Gorge.

Eleganté Cellars also offers an interesting and special Strawberry wine, which is off dry and has less than 1% residual sugar. It is fermented from pure Klicker strawberries. The Klicker family has been growing some of the best strawberries in the world for over 80 years in the Walla Walla Valley.
