Our small boutique winery focuses on estate grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; annually producing 5,000 cases total of all our varietals. Vineyard care takes center stage in our wine production. Sustainable agricultural practices combined with careful management of the fruit yields on the vines leads to the noted intensity of our bottlings.

We first planted our oldest vines of Pinot Noir in 1990, shortly adding a block of Dijon clone Chardonnay two years later. Incrementally, we expanded the vineyards and now nurture 34 acres (25 Acres of Pinot Noir, 4.5 acres of Chardonnay and 1/2 acre of Pinot Gris). In addition to our estate fruit, we grow "alternative whites" across the  Columbia River, on Underwood Mountain. 


"Hanging less grapes adds labor and cost, but there are no shortcuts when the goal is the finest expression of a specific vineyard in the wine."
