About the Winery and Winemaker:

SVV img Serge web

Spring Valley Vineyard is situated 12 miles northeast of Walla Walla, spread amid the picturesque wheat fields of southeastern Washington with the Blue Mountains providing the backdrop.

In 1993, Shari and Dean Derby planted the first grapes at Spring Valley. The first vintage of Estate grown and bottled Spring Valley Vineyard wines were produced with the 1999 vintage. The Derbys’ son Devin Corkrum Derby served as winemaker until his untimely death in 2004. Devin’s assistant and friend Serge Laville took over as winemaker and continues the legacy of Spring Valley Vineyard.

Serge started working at the ranch during the 2002 harvest, assisting then winemaker Devin Derby, and quickly mastered the unique and special attributes of the vineyard and winemaking style at Spring Valley. The two discovered they shared a philosophy of “listening to the vineyard” and allowing nature to take its course in the winemaking process with minimal, careful intervention including picking, sorting, and punching down the wines gently by hand. When Devin died in 2004, Serge quietly tended the wines despite his own grief at the loss of his close friend, and soon made the decision to stay at the winery and continue the legacy of Devin and the winery. He has been Spring Valley’s Winemaker since 2005. To this day, Serge crafts each wine with the care and attention that is the tradition of Spring Valley Vineyard.
