In the vineyard

StoneTree Vineyard is on the Wahluke Slope, a warm site chosen for the white pepper and spice qualities in the fruit. Les Collines Vineyard, on the foothills of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla Valley, adds bold flavors and perfume to the blend. The third vineyard is Alder Ridge Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills along the North shore of the Columbia River. This wonderful site brings rich, cherry jam characteristics as well as clean minerality to the wine.
