  • Silver Medal: 2011 Les Collines Vineyard / Walla Walla Valley Blend X (Bordeaux-style blend)

  • Silver Medal: 2011 Les Collines Vineyard / Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

This makes a total of 11 medals from major wine competitions for our 2013 release wines!  Add our 3 90+ point scores from the Wine Enthusiast, and it looks like we've had a pretty good year!  We're very proud of our creations and looking forward to more success for our 2014 release wines.

Burnt Bridge Cellars is a small artisan winery located in Vancouver, Washington.  Owners David Smith and Mark Mahan began making wine together in 2008, bringing their dream of operating a winery to fruition in the fall 2010 with a 300 case harvest of Bordeaux and Rhone varietal fruit from the Columbia River AVA, primarily from the Walla Walla Valley and Sunnyside Valley.  Our 2013 vintage includes grapes from 6 of  the best vineyards in Eastern Washington and Oregon and will produce about 1900 cases of wine.


A background of engineering, science, music, food and love of wine is blended together to reveal a product that is a balance of art and science.  Finding the best fruit grown in Washington and Oregon, treating it with care during crush, using only minimal interventions necessary to allow for varietal expressiveness while embracing each vintage’s unique features has produced wines with exceptional varietal character and balance.


Our winery is located at 1500 Broadway in Vancouver, WA
