Our Valley Wine & Soccer Fanatics!

They're local Futbol, as in soccer fanatics.

They're just as crazy about their world famous sparkling wines.

A toast to another fantastic spring barrel tasting weekend in the valley. With many thousands of visitors from throughout the northwest partaking, an important event for our local wine industry. Huge for Treverri Cellars and the Grieb family. The locally produced Treverri sparkling wines have been served at state department events in the nation's capitol. With direct family roots from Germany, the Griebs rich in European tradition. And, of course that means futbol. On family wine marketing business trips to the old country, the Griebs don't miss a chance to attend as many soccer matches as possible.

Julie Grieb "When we're in Germany we visit Dorvan Stadium and try to visit Cholta. And, last time we were there we were actually in Leverton Stadium"

And, then there's Christian Grieb, a major player in the family sparkling wine biz......a Seattle Sounders fanatic, been a season ticket holder since the first kick......the leader of the crowd chants in the Rave Green's famous rooting section. Always a balancing act for Christian and the rest of the Grieb team. Supporting their favorite German soccer clubs....and the Sounders....and trying to run one of the most successful Sparkling wine companies in the Northwest.

Julie Grieb "He's been a little busier these days so he hasn't had as much of an opportunity. But, ya. Do you have time to run a business with all that soccer going on? Sometimes not. Sometimes it overtakes our lives a little bit, ya. But, ya, it's all good."

Party Group "Woooh, Yakima. Thanks Yakima."
