Les Collines Vineyard

Les Collines

Located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains at the 1200 foot level, Norm and Shane McKibben started planting in 2001. The soil produces unique flavor characteristics, even in young fruit.

 

Les Collines Vineyard is located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains at 1200 feet, and was planted in 2001. Les Collines combines cutting-edge technology in its irrigation & weather systems with sustainable agricultural practices to produce some of the most sought-after grapes in Washington. Technology is integral to their vineyard management practices and includes a wireless-controlled precision irrigation system. The soil is very uniform, deep silt-loam, and produces unique flavor characteristics, even in young fruit.

Marie-Eve comments: We are leasing 10 acres of this new vineyard as it is one of the warmest, frost-free sites in the Walla Walla Valley. Grapes sourced from here are for big, bold wines with very concentrated and dark flavors.
