Our Story

The word Gård, meaning farm or estate, honors the Scandinavian heritage of our family. The Lawrence family has been farming the Royal Slope, near Royal City, Wash., in Washington's Columbia Valley for over 45 years.

Brothers Hervey "Sandy" Lawrence and John Lawrence, along with John's son Josh Lawrence, were proud to launch Gård Vintners, a product of Lawrence Cellars, in 2006 to capture the quality of our estate vineyard in the glass.

Currently in production: Riesling (clone 2, 9 and 12), Syrah (Joseph Phelps, Sara Lee, and Tablas Creek clones), Cabernet Sauvignon (clone 2 and 6), Pinot Gris (clone 9 and WA clone) and Roussanne (Tablas Creek clone), Grenache (Tablas Creek and clone 3), Viognier (WA clone) and Cabernet Sauvignon (clone 6). Coming into production: Malbec (clone 4), Merlot (clone 15), Chardonnay.

Our vineyard provides the ideal conditions for growing fine wine grapes, particularily with its south-facing slope, elevation (1,365-1675 feet), and climate.

The soil is a silt loam with a depth of 18-42 inches on top of fractured basalt. We're pleased with our well-draining soil along with our drip irrigation system that give us full control over the water intake of the vines.
