Our Philosophy

best wine tasting in yakima washington

Our focus is on growing the best quality wine grapes to provide our winemakers with exceptional ingredients. We believe that great wines start in the vineyard, influenced by the unique combination of soil, water, light, and human touch known as Terroir. We cultivate grapes in two distinct American Viticulture Areas (AVAs): the established Yakima Valley and the newer Naches Heights AVA, which we helped establish in 2008. To obtain AVA status, we had to demonstrate the area's uniqueness through historical, geographical, and geological data.


We value partnerships with like-minded individuals who share our passion and commitment to crafting fine wines. By combining their winemaking expertise with our high-quality grapes, we ensure a consistent product year after year. Given the competitive nature of the wine industry, both in Washington and globally, we strive to produce the best wine possible at each price point.


In our tasting room and retail operations, we believe that wine is not just a beverage but an experience. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best wine education and enjoyable moments. We understand that wine is part of the larger picture of good food and fun, and we purposefully hire staff members with excellent social skills and a passion for creating memorable experiences. We value a positive work environment that promotes happiness, health, and a sense of ownership in our shared success.
