We have recently released two new wines. Our 2009 CHELAN ESTATE MERLOT, ESTATE VINEYARD The 2009 vintage was one of the warmest we have experienced. Dark, nearly black color grapes. Ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas. Large and expressive center that seems to grow in layers of fruit, wood spice, white pepper and a touch of licorice. The finish is long and smooth.88% Merlot, 12% Syrah. Also out 2007 C E VINEYARDS RESERVE RED, STILLWATER CREEK VINEYARD, COLUMBIA VALLEY All grapes sourced from the Stillwater Creek Vineyard. In 2007 Malbec replaces Cabernet in second position to the traditional Merlot foundation of the 2006 Reserve Red blend. Very forward, fully developed bottle bouquet of dark ripe fruit. Black cherry, plum, blackberry and blueberry all wrapped in spicy French Oak. Vanilla on the long finish. Credit the Petit Verdot for the acidity that will carry this wine for many years to come. 64% Merlot, 18% Malbec, 9% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our Story

Our Estate vineyard was planted in the spring of 2000. Pinot Noir makes up the majority of the vineyard including Pinot Noir Clones #115, #113 and #13. Lake Chelan's cool south shore has proven to be an ideal location for Pinot Noir. Other varietals include Merlot, Chardonnay, Viognier, Syrah. In the winery great care is taken to preserve the character of the fruit and the unique expression of our vineyard.
The wines produced from Stillwater Creek fruit are the ideal counterpart to the estate wines. Bordeaux varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petite Verdot are proving to be among the best in the state. These grapes produce wines of exceptional varietal character and
complex blends. In addition we source Syrah, Roussanne, Viognier and Chardonnay.
