Keely grew up in Icicle Canyon at the winery site
General Manager – Wine Club Manager
Rob’s daughter, Keely Newsom, came back into the family business fold in 2012 after an extended stint in Walla Walla. Keely grew up in Icicle Canyon at the winery site. She has been exposed to wine and winemakers coming and going since birth. Her favorite, Gary Figgins, gave her own daughter Mia James her first finger drip of vino last year.
Keely has a BS in Fitness and Wellness from Western Washington University. After college she worked at both Dunham Cellars, Revelry, and Forgeron wineries in Walla Walla. Needing the mountains she returned to Leavenworth to manage our downtown tasting room, our wine club, and to crush grapes, do tastings, and raise the next generation winemaker.
Keely is an avid people person, chef, snowboarder, fitness and yoga instructor, and an especially great vocalist. Plus, she’s the world’s greatest mom!
