Our Story

Dusted Valley was founded on the notion that when family pulls together the American Dream can turn into a living reality. Hey, we're just a proud bunch of farm-raised Wisconsin Cheese-heads, and what goes well with cheese? You guessed it – wine. It's all about the wine…

We don't exactly remember when the idea of Dusted Valley came about. We've all had many inspiring experiences with wine and wonderful food, surrounded by incredible friends and family. We're sure you can think of a few times that this fermented pleasure represented a little taste of heaven. Thus began the quest for the best fruit and estate vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley and beyond.

So, in 2003 the Braunel and Johnson families moved to Walla Walla and became the 52nd winery to "hang the shingle" and call Walla Walla Valley home. Today, our family is producing spectacular wines from its 4,000 case operation. We are vineyard focused and farm four diverse vineyards totaling nearly 100 acres in the Walla Walla Valley. In addition, Dusted Valley has begun a unique barrel project using extra-tight-grained Wisconsin Oak harvested from the very land we grew up around!

As we say in the Dusted Valley, “Experience the click of quality and crack that cap! The first two glasses are for your health, the second two for ours!"
