Winemaker John Abbott founded Abeja with Ken Harrison in 2002. Prior to starting Abeja, Abbott had served as winemaker at Canoe Ridge. Located in Walla Walla, Abeja focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon along with limited bottlings of Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Viognier. In select years – thus far only 2002 and 2005 – Abeja releases a reserve Cabernet blended from their best barrels.
