                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1988

                      About the owner: Joan and Pierre-Louis Monteillet are the creators/owners of Monteillet Fromagerie in Dayton, WA, the first artisanal cheese facility in the Walla Walla Valley. Joan grew up in Walla Walla, Washington as a third generation wheat farmer’s daughter, on a farm that raised cattle, horses, pigs, sheep, chickens and a huge garden that allowed the family to be sustainable and self-reliant. Joan was raised in a time in Walla Walla when young girls on horses had more pull on the street than anyone in a car. Pierre-Louis was born and raised in Millau, France, a small town on the Tarn River, just 20 miles from Roquefort, renowned for the natural limestone caves where cheese production celebrates over 2000 years. In 1978, at age 27, Joan ventured outside the United States to Oaxaca, Mexico, where Pierre-Louis was also exploring the ancient Zapotec ruins of Monte Alban. Six weeks later, Joan, back in Walla Walla working as the chef at the Left Bank Restaurant, received a big surprise visit from Pierre-Louis, who had hitch-hiked from El Paso, Texas in three days to Walla Walla. This began their odyssey of 35 years of love, farming and as of 2013, still building a lifestyle based on authentic respect for each other’s cultures.

                      Why the Owner Chose Walla Walla:
                      This is a historical neighborhood surrounding Whitman College where the streets are shaded by the ancient trees saved by local women.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      A covered front porch with comfortable wicker chairs greet you when you arrive and becomes a favorite spot during your stay to sip your local wines and nibble on cheese...Now, you're at home, a part of the neighborhood.
