As legend has it, the raising of grapes and production of wine in Southeastern Washington began with French Canadian employees of the Hudson Bay Company post at "Frenchtown" during the 1820s. Frenchtown became Lowden, Washington, but the tradition of winemaking continues today. Lowden's L'Ecole No 41 honors the area's historic winemaking tradition with the production of premium, handcrafted, varietal wines, as well as with its choice of a winery name.

L'Ecole, French for "the school," began its winery in 1983, in the basement of the old 1915 Schoolhouse No 41. In 1996, production was expanded by the addition of a state-of-the-art facility built that year, while the winery's laboratory and red wine-barrel aging took over the basement. Located on the main floor, L'Ecole's tasting room was restored, preserving the schoolroom character with its original chalkboards, light fixtures, fir floors and moldings. Tucked away among barrels in the cellar is a Christmas pageant mural and child-size drinking fountain. Offices and an oversized meeting room also echo uses of schooldays past. Even the label for L'Ecole wines incorporates the historic schoolhouse theme, thanks to the 1983 artistic rendition of the winery by then eight-year-old Ryan Campbell.
