We are a small, family owned and operated winery located just off Highway 243 South in Mattawa Washington, which lies on the east side of the Columbia River twenty miles south of the Gorge Amphitheater. Our family actually began planting grapes twenty five years ago, starting with the varieties of Riesling and Gewuerztraminer. We currently have over forty acres in limited production, and another sixty acres that were planted Spring 2002 Once we reach peak production in three to four years, we will produce the varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese, Syrah, Riesling, Gewuerztraminer. In 2001, the year in which we premiered our first vintages in our own label, we bottled approximately 400 cases of the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon and 500 cases of the 1999 Merlot. While the grapes used for these vintages were local Mattawa grapes, they were not from our vineyards. We are confident that as we move closer and closer toward using own grapes exclusively, the quality of our wines Read more »

  • Fox, we are having guests, tonight, and I was thinking of offering that Brooks.  It will be a game time decision. Al, I enjoy all Keenan wines, and, in fact, as Fox has suggested, the Syrah is really not my favorite.  He is right about their Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  They actually have two Merlot bottlings--Napa Valley and Carneros.  I pre...

  • In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More
