Walla Walla Valley

5 acres sourced

Why we love it

With patience and bottle age, the wines from these grapes will develop Bordeaux-esque restraint, finesse, and a beautiful frame, without too much tannin--just enough for the elegant style. 

Grapes we source

Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah

Notes on Terroir

Just south of Walla Walla near the Oregon border, the soils here are silt loam and wind-blown glacial loess, and lake bed sediment soils which drain extremely well and are full of minerals. A slightly cooler site, Pepper Bridge ripens 10 - 14 days later than many Walla Walla vineyards. The added hang-time and low yields (2.5 tons / acre) allow for slow, full ripening, imbuing depth, age-worthiness, and structure to the fruit. 

Wine from here

Planted in 1991, it is one of the Walla Walla Valley’s largest, oldest commercial vineyards, and is committed to sustainability and leveraging the best in new technology.
