GOLDEN RIDGE VINEYARD
Walla Walla Valley American Viticultural Area "AVA"
For our first vintage we sourced Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Golden Ridge Vineyard. Located in the northeast portion of Walla Walla, this 20 year old vineyard is meticulously farmed by Michael and Cindy Rasch.
Yakima Valley AVA
For the 2018 vintage, we sourced Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from DuBrul Vineyard in Yakima Valley. First planted in 1992 by Hugh and Kathy Shiels, it has become one of Washington's premier vineyards under their stewardship. The vineyard sits on rocky, south facing slopes near the town of Outlook, WA.
Columbia Valley AVA
Wine grapes were first planted at this site in 1973. Since then, Cabernet Sauvignon has become the flagship variety of the vineyard. The site sits majestically on slopes overlooking the Columbia River. The grapes for our 2019 vintage come from Block 18 which was re-planted in 2000. Beginning in July 2021 this vineyard will be part of the White Bluffs AVA, a new sub-region of the larger Columbia Valley AVA.
LES COLLINES VINEYARD
Walla Walla Valley AVA
Located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, Les Collines Vineyard sits in the southeast portion of Walla Walla. Due to its elevation, Les Collines has one of the longest growing seasons in the Columbia Valley. This extended season ensures that fruit has the best opportunity to reach full physiological ripeness. This vineyard has always been on our "list." In 2019 we got the opportunity to purchase Cabernet Sauvignon from the older and higher elevation Block 45, so we jumped at it!
Red Mountain AVA
For the 2020 vintage our cabernet sauvignon comes from Klipsun Vineyards. One of Washington’s most iconic vineyards, Klipsun sits above the Yakima River in the Red Mountain AVA. First planted in 1983, and now consisting of 120 planted acres, this vineyard is known for its rich, tannic fruit. Our rows are in Block 20, which was planted in 2001.
PHINNY HILL VINEYARDS
Horse Heaven Hills AVA
For the 2021 vintage our cabernet sauvignon comes from highly-regarded Phinny Hill Vineyards. This property sits in the western portion of the Horse Heaven Hills AVA on a plateau north of the Columbia River. The vineyard is owned and farmed by the Beightol family. Our fruit comes from Block 12 which was planted in 1998 and is one of the oldest blocks in the vineyard.
