Product Description

Vineyard: Goose Ridge Vineyard

Sheltered from Seattle’s maritime climate by the towering Cascade Mountain Range, this1,400 acre vineyard receives less than 8” of rainfall annually. It is a gently sloped, south-facing site adjacent to Red Mountain.

Long, warm summer days and cool nights produce grapes noted for their ripe, rich character.

Committed to sound viticultural practices, all vines are planted on original rootstock. South to North row orientation for maximum solar exposure, drip irrigation, managed crop loads, and canopy adjustments consistently yield fruit of exceptional character and complexity.

The vineyards that we sourced the grapes from is in Richland, Washington, up by Kennewick.
