SuLei Cellars Roussanne 2008

Friday, June 12, 2009

SuLei Cellars (pronounced soo-lay) is a new Walla Walla winery. The word SuLei is a synonym for the Celtic Mother Goddess Sulis Minerva. The word is also intended as an indication of the partnership between the two owners.

SuLei is a joint venture between Tanya Woodley, who serves as winemaker, and Elaine Jomwe, who serves as the Operations Manager. Woodley is a graduate from Walla Walla Community College’s Enology and Viticulture program and spent three years working under Steve Lessard at Whitman Cellars.

SuLei Cellars’ initial releases include a 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Rose, a 2008 Roussanne – reviewed here, and a 2007 Cabernet-Syrah blend called Beet Red.
