Our Story

Our winery is located on an old homestead near Discovery Bay. We continue the homestead tradition by using the heirloom apples varieties growing here to make hard ciders. We use only naturally grown fruit for our ciders, no herbicides or pesticides. We make many different hard ciders including our famous and original Ginger Cider.

We also specialize in Red Wine, and in particular red wine blends. Blending two or more wine varietals together can create a wine that captures the best of each varietal and creates a synergistic wine experience. This is winemaking art.

Our blends include:
Eaglemount Red (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah), Osprey (bordeaux style blend)
Raptor Reserve (bordeaux style blend)

We also have varietals that stand alone including Syrah, Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon (soon to be released).

Our wine grapes come from Arianses Vineyard in the Wahluke Slope AVA, Wallula Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, and from the Red Mountain AVA. The terroirs produce full bodied flavorful wines. Our wines are aged in French, eastern European, and American oak barrels in our underground cellar.

Our estate vineyard is under development. We've planted wine grape varieties that ripen in our cooler summer climate. These grapes have a delicate complexity and make fine wines.

Our Tasting Room is open throughout the year. Summer hours are Thursday through Monday 11 to 5. Call for appointment or hours during the week.

Shipping is available of our ciders and wines.
