Spanish for bee, name is pronounced 'ah-BAY-ha'. Name is chosen for its simple beauty and its reminder of times past when farming implied a respect for the environment and close connection to the earth. Abeja is located on a century olad farmstead in the breathtaking foothills of the Blue Mountains. Once seriously dilapidated, all of the original farm buildings have been carefully restored with an emphasis on craftsmanship and longevity. Creative use of salvaged materials adds interest and sets the stage for renewed purpose in these old buildings, which now house our winery and our guests.

    Snoothrank:

    15% native fermentation for the redsA surprisingly meat tone open the nose here followed by very fresh and pure aromas of coffee, black plummy and curranty fruit, and subtle framing notes of balsam and viy. Plush on entry then clear on the palate with rather big, black currant fruit. There's enough substance and tannin here to make this a litt... Read More

  • Abeja Syrah Walla Walla Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Hmm...a bit of sweet candied fruit here, but very smokey as well even with some hints of runts candy! The palette brings a mouthful of hot fruit and tannin, making this a very puzzling wine, which I like! Read More
