Waters is an artisanal boutique winery located in Walla Walla, Washington.

Jamie Brown Winemaker/GM.
A Walla Walla native, Jamie studied winemaking alongside winemakers such as Rusty Figgins (Glen Fiona), Eric Dunham, (Dunham Cellars), and Jean François Pellet (Pepper Bridge, Amavi) before earning his first reviews as the winemaker at James Leigh Cellars.
