For our customers not familiar with the viticulture of Washington State, you must know that all of the vines from which our grapes are sourced are grown on their own roots. This is contrary to viticultural practices in France, Italy, Germany, California, and Oregon where wine grape vines are grafted onto root stock derived from Vitus Labrusca, native American grape varieties that are resistant to phylloxera, a root louse responsible for devastating the world’s vineyards in the 19th century.

The wine is truly grown in the vineyard, which makes choosing high quality vineyards one of our winemaker’s most important tasks. Consider that we have been making and studying the wines from Washington State for 19 years and still find that we have plenty to learn. This is, however, almost a cliché in the wine business here in Washington State when we compare our experience with those of French and Italian winemakers who have been learning the terroir of their vineyards for generations.
