We made it! Both literally and figuratively. The 2017 vintage is in the books as they say. The newest wine is resting in barrels soaking up all the goodness the oak has to provide. The white and rose are in tanks being prepared for bottling and release in the spring. A very fine vintage if I do say so myself. One of the highlights of the new vintage is the Albarino we picked from Coyote Canyon Vineyard, one of our favorite growers, in the Horse Heaven Hills. The early odds are that you will enjoy it this summer. I'm looking forward to figuring out what food pairs well with this varietal. Perhaps Spanish style tapas on a hot summer evening? Here's more from Wiki about Albarino CLICK HERE .
We also made it to Kennewick, Washington. My family and I made the move from Seattle late summer, just before harvest. I then commuted back and forth during "crush" to Seattle with grapes in tow, since our new winery facility was not quite ready to move into. Finally, in November, we got our keys, moved all the finished wine, case goods, and equipment to Eastern Washington. 20k miles later, we opened our tasting room a couple of weeks before Christmas, which is open for business both Saturday and Sunday, 12-5 pm.
Sometime in the Spring 2018, we will have a grand opening where each of you are invited. We'll have entertainment, food truck(s), and new wine to try.

If you feel so inclined while you are here, please purchase a couple of bottles.
Thank you for your time!
