“Façon means "the way or style of expression," in French, and represents the unique style of Forgeron Cellars, where we blend French heritage and training with years of experience working with Washington terroir.

Façon Blanc is inspired by long, relaxing afternoons on the patios and pétanque courts of Provence. This wine is medium bodied, viscous, clean and refreshing.

The 2016 growing season started fast and furious with an early bud break and we expected a repeat of 2015, the warmest vintage on record. Thankfully temperatures dropped back in early June and through the summer, and we even experienced some unusual rainfalls in September and October. These events stretched the growing season, allowing the grapes to accumulate additional flavors and concentration.” Winery Notes.
