Kontos

Growing up in a winemaker’s household within the Walla Walla Valley, Cameron had a great deal of exposure into the world of wine and winemaking.  His father, Cliff Kontos of Fort Walla Walla Cellars, is a remarkable mentor and is always excited to share his knowledge of life and of wine.  Cliff is easily the most important influence on Cameron’s life; as a winemaker, husband, father, and a man.  It didn’t take long before he realized that this was his calling and his lifelong connection to his father.

In 2002, Cliff joined Forgeron Cellars, and quickly became a part of their family. After a short time, Cameron was promoted to assistant winemaker.  During his eight years there, Marie-Eve Gilla helped further his knowledge of crafting wines in a traditional French style.  He and Marie still compare notes and enjoy a treasured friendship to this day.

Cameron’s own style of winemaking has evolved and matured with time.  The blending of the Alatus is of primary importance.  He then focuses on blending wines within the same varietal but from various vineyards throughout the Walla Walla Valley.  A very extensive oak program gives him the finishing finesse that make Kontos Cellars wines stand proud.

Cameron and his wife Becca added to their family in the spring of 2011 with the birth of their first daughter, Brynnan.
