Our Vineyard Partners:
Located at the foothills of the Rattlesnake Ridge in the Columbia Valley, Lewis Vineyard (elev. 1200 ft.) is a small, family owned vineyard. The higher elevation, with a gentle southern slope, drains cool air away from the vineyard. This allows the vineyard to be a late harvest, with extended fruit hangtime, developing flavors that cannot be achieved in other areas of the AVA.
First planted in 1998 with a few acres of Syrah, Lewis Vineyard now comprises 80 acres of varietals, including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay. These varietals thrive in the vineyard’s sandy loam. Drip irrigation is used to manage water application, applying moisture when needed and stressing the vines into producing only the best fruit.
