Kung Hei Fat Choi - Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Otis Kenyon partners Jim and Sylvia Stanfill lived in Singapore for a number of years
and fell in love with the customs, traditions and people from that part of the world.
To bring this new adventure with the winery full circle,
we are throwing a Chinese New Year party!
See decorations they acquired while living in Singapore and sample Lunar New Years treats with our Walla Walla wines! Woodinville Tasting Room
I attended last year and the decorations really are cool to see.
If there is interest we could do some tastings at the other wineries in the area

Otis Kenyon Wine
Otis Kenyon Wine is a family owned and managed winery with deep historical ties to the Walla Walla Valley. We handcraft limited quantities of elegantly structured and affordable Bordeaux and Rhone varietal wines from our estate and other proven Walla Walla Valley vineyards. Owners Steve Kenyon and Deborah Dunbar wanted to authenticate they could consistently grow and produce excellent wines.
In tribute to four generations of Otis Kenyons, the family has returned to the Walla Walla Valley with a passion for time-honored winemaking, an unyielding commitment to excellence and a dedication to sustainable and bio-diverse viticultural practices.
About Otis Kenyon Wine
OTIS KENYON STORY
Reminiscent of the remarkable transformation of Vitis vinifera into fine wine, our family story continues to evolve with the introduction of each new generation. It begins in the Walla Walla Valley in the early 1900s. A young man, James Otis Kenyon, was a struggling dentist practicing in Milton-Freewater, Oregon. When a new dentist moved to town, James, for reasons that remain a mystery, burned his competitor’s office to the ground. After much speculation and a lengthy investigation, James spent a short period of time providing superb dental care to the staff and patients at a nearby hospital.
Ostracized by his wife and presumed dead by his two sons, the family moved to Walla Walla, Washington. Robert Otis Kenyon, the eldest son, never spoke of his father even to his son, Stephen Otis Kenyon. Yet, almost exactly 50 years after the incident that began the family legend, Steve discovered his grandfather living quietly on the Oregon coast.
James was reunited with his sons and became a joyful part of their families living long enough to witness the birth of his first great grandchild, Muriel. Although he passed on at age 101, James would have delighted in the birth and naming of his great grandson, Samuel Otis Kenyon.
Today, in tribute to four generations of Otis Kenyons each with strong ties to the Walla Walla Valley, owners Stephen Otis Kenyon and Deborah Dunbar have returned to the area to make wine. Guided by an unyielding commitment to excellence, and dedicated to sustainable and bio-diverse viticultural practices, they are passionate growers and producers of elegantly structured and affordable Bordeaux and Rhone varietal wines.
In honor of James Otis Kenyon, the label bears his silhouette.
