Stone Tree Vineyard
StoneTree Vineyard is 250 acres of wine grapes on the Wahluke Slope. We grow various clones of most of the principle Bordeaux and Rhone red varieties, as well as Zinfandel, Primitivo, Tempranillo, and Petit Syrah.
Dineen Vineyards is located in the Yakima Valley AVA just north of the town of Zillah, Washington. We are in a unique hill-top area that is especially well suited for growing premium wine grapes as well as offering far-reaching views of the valley, and Mount Adams and Mount Rainier in the distance. Dineen Vineyards began planting in the spring of 2001 and continues to add annually to the planted acreage. Currently there are 75 acres under vine.
Discovery Vineyard was first planted in 2005 and is owned by Kay and Milo May. They co-manage the vineyard with Paul Champoux who acts as consultant and mentor. The 30 acre site which overlooks the Columbia River is planted in 17 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, six acres of Syrah and one acre of Petit Verdot. Elevation on average is 550 feet and the soil is wind-blown loess over fractured basalt. All training, pruning and harvesting is by hand labor.
Quintessence is a young site with the first phase of planting taking place in 2010. While the general slope of Red Mountain gently angles to the Southwest, Quintessence is slightly more Southeastern facing right into the teeth of the morning sun. This early morning heat and rocky top layer that retains and reflects that solar energy is why I think Quintessence is consistently one of the first sites to ripen in the AVA and results in extremely concentrated wines across the board.
Stoney Vine Vineyard
Formed by the ancient bed of the Walla Walla River, this 17-acre vineyard lies on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley in the world famous Rocks District of Milton Freewater AVA. Planted in 2007.
