Kelroo Cellars Tasting with Winemaker Ryan Crane
Friday August 25, 2017 5-7pm
Kerloo Cellars will be at Morso on Friday August 25, 2017 from 5-7pm with winemaker Ryan Crane. The winery says, “Kerloo was our calling to leave behind ordinary lives, our calling to explore life’s journey with family and friends, our calling to pursue our passion for winemaking in Washington State. With each passing year, our passion for winemaking continues to evolve, a continual pursuit to push winemaking and our lives to new levels.”
from the winery Kerloo is our inspiration and we pride ourselves on bottling palate-challenging wines that everyday consumers aren't accustomed to drinking. We believe this is what keeps people coming back vintage after vintage. We’re committed to being accessible with an intimate connection to our wine. One of the greatest joys of winemaking comes through interacting with you - our customer, and we believe the more you know about our process, the more you’ll love Kerloo wine. If we had a preference, everyone who opens a bottle of Kerloo will have interacted with us personally.
Ryan Crane originally founded Kerloo Cellars in 2007 while residing in Walla Walla, Washington. His passion for winemaking and commitment to producing quality wines is apparent in every glass of Kerloo. Ryan’s hands-on winemaking story began as a volunteer at Animale Cellars in Seattle, years before Kerloo was founded. After falling in love with the process, Ryan probed further, eventually working crush under the keen eye of Marie-Eve Gilla at Forgeron Cellars. He then left behind his ordinary life in Seattle to pursue an AAAS in Enology and Viticulture in Walla Walla.Ultimately his passion landed him the position of Assistant Winemaker at Va Piano Vineyards, a position to which he reported for three years.
The influence and support of true luminaries in the Washington wine industry like Gilla, Justin Wylie of Va Piano, and Steve Brooks of Trust Cellars propelled Ryan forward to where he has found himself today: in the midst of his Kerloo Cellars dream-like reality.In addition to building the Kerloo brand and pushing winemaking to new levels, Ryan has ventured into the production of concrete wine vessels (RAW Concrete Company).
In 2015 Ryan moved Kerloo Cellars to SoDo, the industrial section of Seattle. Ryan is also the proud father of his two sons, Beckett and Sullivan. Wine, family, and love sums up the core of Kerloo Cellar wines.
