Portteus

Portteus vineyards are on the gradual, south facing slopes of the Rattlesnakes Hills AVA, in the Yakima Valley, about 1200 feet above Zillah, WA.

The arid, high desert climate (6-8 inches of rain annually) coupled with a well-drained volcanic ash and clay loam soil conspire to create ideal growing conditions for a number of superior white and red varietals: Chardonnay, Viognier, Orange Muscat, Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Petit Syrah and Pinot Noir.

The vineyard is well-water irrigated, adding sulfur, iron and silica into the growing environment.
