The Historical Sweethearts of Spring Valley Vineyard

Frederick and Nina Lee found love at Walla Walla's Liberty Theater in the 1920's. Frederick Corkrum, carrying on the family's wheat farming legacy at Spring Valley, convinced the beautiful vaudeville performer named Nina Lee Moore to retire her dancing shoes and help him farm Spring Valley. Frederick and Nina Lee married in 1929 and in 1934 they welcomed a daughter, Shari, present-day owner of the vineyard.

Walla Walla native Uriah met his wife Katherine when she traveled from Wales to visit her brother David, who was married to Uriah's sister. They were married in 1897 and had four sons. Uriah and Katherine were the original farmers at Spring Valley and succeeded despite the Depression. Their union and their legacy have inspired the great wines that bear their names.
