Story of the winery
Treveri Cellars is a family-owned sparkling wine house that produces some of the finest handcrafted sparkling wines in the United States. The name “Treveri” comes from the historic name of the city of Trier, Germany, one of the former seats of the Roman Empire
Treveri opened its doors on November 23, 2010 with a mission to put Washington sparkling wine on the map. Since its opening, Treveri wine has been served at White House State Department receptions and the James Beard Foundation in New York.
Producing a wide array of sparkling wines, including non-traditional varieties such as Riesling and Mueller-Thurgau, Treveri largely focuses on 100% varietal sparkling wines.
Wine Making Philosophy
Sparkling wines require particular attention: the grapes must be carefully selected for lower sugar levels to ensure bright acidity and the perfect
alcohol in the finished product. We strive to find premium vineyards that offer robust flavors of the varietals for use in our sparkling wines.
The keys to our success are the long-term partnerships forged with our growers to produce exemplary sparkling wines.
The Columbia Valley boasts some of the finest vineyard sites in the country that consistently produce world-class sparkling wine.
About the winemaker
Juergen Grieb was born and raised in Trier, Germany, where he received his formal winemaking and sparkling winemaking degrees.
While in school, Juergen learned to produce some of the finest Rieslings in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer at Karthauserhof Winery.
Juergen studied under the tutelage of Herr Breiling and Christoph Tyrell, two of Germany’s most decorated winemakers.
With an expertise in Riesling, Juergen also developed his passion for sparkling wine. He pursued a second apprenticeship at the Duhr Sektkellerei in downtown Trier.
There, he learned the craft of Methode Champenoise sparkling wine production.
After earning his formal degrees and finishing his apprenticeships in Germany, Juergen applied for a job at Langguth Winery in Washington State.
He came to Washington State in 1982 and has been making quality Washington wine ever since. Juergen has accumulated more than 30 years of winemaking experience,
making wines from every growing region in the state. He continues to craft premium wines at Treveri Cellars, which is Washington’s only sparkling wine house.
Juergen’s passion and enthusiasm for sparkling wine is present in every bottle he produces, and like any good German, he lives to share his passion with everyone he meets.
