Trout returns to Flying Trout
Walla Walla, Wash.—Winemaker Ashley Trout is returning to Flying Trout Wines, the winery she founded in 2004. Trout sold the winery to TERO Estates in 2010 and left the company in 2013, after the birth of her second child, but ultimately she decided to return to winemaking. “Time and time again, incrementally, the wines kept calling, and I couldn’t shake it,” Trout said. With Trout’s return, winemaker Doug Roskelley will focus on TERO estate wines, managing the estate vineyard and developing a new winery in Walla Walla.
