Spring Valley Vineyard is situated 12 miles northeast of Walla Walla, spread amid the picturesque wheat fields of southeastern Washington with the Blue Mountains providing the backdrop. The terroir demonstrates a mesoclimate that is ideally suited for growing wine grapes. The unique microclimate of Spring Valley also allows the grapes to develop their own distinct characteristics. Initially, we planted a 2 acre block of Merlot in 1993 on a south-southwest facing hillside. The vines follow the north-south slope of the hills in vertical rows. This orientation, coupled with the declination of slope, allows the vines optimal use of sunshine, air drainage, and the reflective nature of the surrounding wheat fields. Great care is taken when caring for the vineyard. Under Gaynor Derby’s direction, every grape is tended by hand, including crop thinning, leaf pulling, and harvesting, not to mention hand-burying individual canes to protect them from the cold in the winters of southeastern Washington.

  • Spring Valley Vyd. Uriah 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a beautiful garnet in the glass, with a slight hint of amber along the edges. The nose presents aromas of blackberry, leather and mint, with just a bit of black pepper spice. The taste is just lovely, with a good bit of black licorice and blackberry up front that transitions nicely to some notes of mint and black pepper midpalate. ... Read More

  • Spring Valley Vineyard Uriah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep ruby color in the glass, with a nose of leather, black cherry and a hint of mint. The taste is just lovely, with a rush or ripe fruit up front, blackberry, cherry and plum that transitions effortlessly to some lovely mineral notes of dusty limestone and dried herbs midpalate. The finish is quite nice, with soft tannins that ... Read More

Masculine wines are commonly associated with structure and power, while feminine wines can be perceived as delicate and thin.
