History


Welcome to North Central WA Wine Country

The powerful Columbia River flows through North Central WA Wine Country as it arches against the eastern foothills of the Cascade mountain range. On the sunny side of the mountains, we are able to grow vineyards and orchards heavily cropped with luscious fruit, on the fertile soils in our Wenatchee Valley, Quincy, Ellensburg to the Okanogan and every community in between.

Spectacular views connect the wineries of the North Central region of Washington Wine Country. As you gaze upon the mighty Columbia you are reminded of the vast geological and humble human history that surrounds our growing region. We have been growing fruit in this valley since the turn of the century and would like to share our stories with you.

We are proud that our wines consistently earn awards and high marks for their quality. We invite you to enjoy the sunshine and the passion of family winemakers who create fond memories in your heart and tasty wines for your table.

Terroir


Terroir


What made Washington Terrior so fertile?

A series of cataclysmic floods that came rushing down the Clark Fork and the Columbia River during the Ice Age is what gave Eastern and North Central Washington soil it's unique qualities today. The floods originated from an ancient glacial body of water during the Ice Age called Lake Missoula. During the cataclysmic floods,  torrents carried debris across the land, everything from large boulders and trees to microscopic silt. The silt, referred to as ‘Warden silt loam’, is what collected in the many river valleys of Washington State.

The silt deposits are deep and well drained. For vineyards, this means the vines grow very deep root structures to collect nutrients and water. The more the vine is integrated with the soil, the more it creates consistently good grapes.
