Washington’s success in the wine industry is partly a result of its climate and soil, or terroir. While Western Washington is much wetter and humid, Eastern Washington boasts a dry, desert climate that houses a secret weapon for wine grape production: the Columbia River. The Columbia River runs through the growing regions, supplying water that encourages healthy grape growth. Sparkling wines require particular attention: the grapes must be carefully selected for lower sugar levels to ensure bright acidity and the perfect alcohol in the finished product. We strive to find premium vineyards that offer robust flavors of the varietals for use in our sparkling wines. The keys to our success are the long-term partnerships forged with our growers to produce exemplary sparkling wines. The Columbia Valley boasts some of the finest vineyard sites in the country that consistently produce world-class sparkling wine.

The stylistic vision of this wine is based upon the Italian Moscato, a Moscato of Asti; light, fresh and low in alcohol. The grapes were picked at peak ripeness and lightly whole cluster pressed to avoid phenols. The juice was cold settled and racked to another stainless steel tank for fermentation. It was inoculated with a specially selected yeast strain, which promotes high fruit tones. Fermentation lasted approximately four weeks at 52Â° F. The wine was racked immediately after fermentation to preserve fruitiness and bottled at 30Â° F to preserve the natural CO2.

With over 70 acres of vineyards, award winning wines are the product from the grapes we grow. Winemaker Gus Vizgirda oversees the arduous task of pruning, cultivating, planting, harvesting, and nurturing the vineyards. Due to the diverse terrain, rich soil, and unique micro-climate in Temecula, the grapes produce wonderfully year after year. The warm summer days, and cool evenings are the perfect growing environment for both red and white varietals. Most notable is the hands on approach to farming the Wilson family has embraced, using man power to do most of the work.
White in spite of its name, this vintage French Grower Champagne is a 50/50 blend of Pinot and Chardonnay grapes assembled only in exceptional years. Balanced, fragrant, structured and long in the mouth; a real delight!
Our sparkle comes in pink too. Cremant means sparkling wine made by the Champagne method. There is no reason not to have a glass of sparkling every day. This rosé Crémant comes from lightly steeped Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes. The producers are comprised of families working together and practicing the same techniques that have been passed down to them from their forefathers. Working together, these men and women uphold the values which are at the root of quality and respecting the environment. Thanks to the fruit of their labors, the passion for their profession and their deep attachment to the soil, these winegrowers have managed to bring out all the character of their land.
