August Forest

Week 184

Every Wednesday we feature a local winery for tastings…$10 buys you 3 tastings! Retail bottles will be available; the tasting fee will be applied toward your purchase, or enjoy a bottle with dinner and we’ll waive the corkage fee.

Reservations are highly recommended but not required.


ugust Forest is the collaboration of C.J. Augustine and Forest Rogers-Phillips who met pursuing dreams of making great wine. Both independently left careers and life on the East Coast seeking to further their wine knowledge and enrolled in Walla Walla Community College’s Enology and Viticulture Program.

A strong respect and friendship forged by late night study sessions, group projects, Mario Kart and tasting through hundreds of wines was born and August Forest is the result.

Crafting quality wine representing a sense of place can be achieved while being transparent and attainable. We want to introduce our wine to a new generation and have them feel comfortable asking what they’re tasting and why certain nuances exist, while empowering the experienced wine drinker to ask the questions they’ve always had but were too afraid to ask. Our goal is that August Forest plays a role in de-mystifying wine and in the process drives diverse, new voices to the conversation.
