But first, the grapes. Our winery has fostered deep relationships and long term friendships with some of the best vineyards in Washington state. These relationships have allowed us to source high quality grapes cared for by many of the most dedicated viticulturist in our state.

CRAWFORD VINEYARD

Yakima Valley, Washington

Charlie and Connie Crawford and their Crawford Vineyard have been the primary source of our grapes since we started the winery in 2008. Located in a relatively cooler area just north of Prosser in the Yakima Valley, this 160 acre vineyard is family owned by 3rd generation farmers. Sitting at an elevation of 1,000 feet, they are known for producing some of the richest and most flavorful grapes in the region.

Our other vineyards

Walla Walla Valley, Washington

Most of our grapes come from the Crawford Vineyard, but what they don’t grow, we source from other vineyards in Eastern Washington, primarily the Walla Walla Valley. We’ve found the best Cabernet Franc to come from Rock Bottom Vineyard, our favorite Merlot from the Aria Vineyard, our best ever Cabernet Sauvignon (2017 vintage), from the Red Path Vineyard and delicious, jammy, true Washington Syrah from Johnson Ridge, all located in the Walla Walla Valley.
