We are honored to work with Pepper Bridge Vineyard, Seven Hills West and XL vineyard in making our wines.
Seven Hills West vineyard is located just on the Oregon side of the border in the Walla Walla AVA. This is a former apple orchard site and the soil type is basalt cobblestone. Nicknamed “The Rocks”, these cobbles lie on an old outwash plain of the Walla Walla River. The vines are oriented on a North-South axis at an elevation of 950 feet. more
Pepper Bridge Vineyard is located in the Walla Walla Valley appellation, nearly on the Washington and Oregon border. It was originally planted in 1991 by Norm McKibben and has been managed from its inception by Tom Waliser. Beginning with just 10 acres it now encompasses nearly 200 acres at about 900 feet elevation. We currently source Merlot and small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon from this vineyard.more

Planted in 2007, it encompasses 47 acres, planted on a north facing slope, at an elevation of 1200 feet. The vineyard is owned by John Rempel, and managed by Chris Banek. more
