Novelty Hill Winery, Grenache, Stillwater Creek Vineyard

Washington Grenache is on the rise these days and the only thing holding it back is the limited number of vines planted in the state. Fortunately for Novelty Hill Stillwater Creek, the winery’s estate vineyard, is one of those sites. Particularly well-known for the vineyard’s suitability to Rhone grapes, Grenache is planted on a steep, south-facing section of the vineyard, notable for large chunks of fractured basalt throughout the soil. By cropping the vines for low yields, the vineyard produces an exceptional example of this classic Rhone variety.
