Farming is in our blood. Our parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles all made their living working the land. Eastern Washington is in our blood. We came here as young children and have always called it home. When we planted our first vines in 1997 we were entering uncharted territory. Today, we farm 13 distinct estate vineyard sites totaling nearly 1600 acres. Our grapes are purchased by some of the most prestigious wineries in the state. Our own winery, launched in 2005, produces highly-individualistic wines from our estate and neighboring vineyards. Jim McFerran, one of the foremost viticulturists in Washington, joined us back in 1997 to help with the intricacies of planting. We were very careful about matching the right variety to the right site. Our goal was to be the best growers in the state. From the start, demand for our grapes was immediate and overwhelming. As farmers, there is nothing more satisfying than controlling the quality and style of your product from start to finish. In June of Read more »

  • Milbrandt Vineyards Vineyard Series Petit Sirah Wahluke Slope 2010


    Chocolate, plum, rose petal and white pepper come together on the nose. On entry this is clear, firm and young with a nice blend of richness, power and juicy transparency. There's a little meaty edge to this in the mouth and again while it's a touch simple it captures the fruit of the variety quite well without over doing it. Candied red cherry... Read More

  • Milbrandt Vineyards Vineyard Series Primitivo Wahluke Slope Northridge Slope 2011


    Toasty wood spice, coconut and floral aromas show up on the nose along with some briary notes. In the mouth one finds very clear fruit on entry with fine ripe tannins and supporting acids that keep the wild strawberry and brambly blackberry flavors fresh and clear on the palate. Theres a nice bit of creamy and vanilla scented oak helping to fram... Read More

  • Milbrandt Vineyards Vineyard Series Tempranillo Wahluke Slope 2010


    Lots of earth, tobacco, and black raspberry fruit, with plenty of underlying oak but it works well here and this seems to be where the house winemaking style is working best. This is bright, firm and focused with plenty of richness and depth to the lovely black raspberry fruit and classic tobacco and herb stem scents. The tannins are well manage... Read More

  • Milbrandt Vineyards Vineyard Series Mourvedre Wahluke Slope Clifton Vineyards 2012


    Dark and similar in style with the Grenache more than varietally driven though this does show lots of brewed herbal tea, leather and slightly gamy meaty aromas. Lovely on entry, a touch soft perhaps but fresh and juicy enough with a fine blend of black cherry fruit, leather, and vaguely peppery and meat juicy flavors. Tannins are supple and the ...

  • Milbrandt Vineyards Vineyard Series Grenache Wahluke Slope 2010


    Dark and earthy and a bit oily on the nose with some noticeable oak notes underpinning aromas of brewed tea, carob and spicy garrigue. Moderately big and plump in the mouth with lovely fresh wild strawberry and spicy herb inflected raspberry fruit. A bit more serious than I expected with lovely complexity on the palate, and nice cut on the backe... Read More

  • Milbrandt Vineyards the Estates Cabernet Sauvognon Wahluke Slope 2011


    Fairly big on the nose showing assertive oak base notes, a little nutty and with a lot of nutella accents with some nice herbal framed and almost bell pepper inflected black currant fruits. Broad and a bit fleshy in the mouth but nicely balanced with an easy going personality. This shows some tea, thyme, and chocolate nuance early on the palate ... Read More
