Snowgrass Winery, the first premium winery to be established in the Entiat River Valley, opened in April 2009. The winery is located along the Entiat River, approximately 5.5 miles west of Highway 97A.
Owner/winemaker Alan Moen has had a long history in Northwest winemaking. While working as barrel cellarmaster at Columbia Winery, he helped make the region’s first single-vineyard Merlot in 1987 and the first Northwest Syrah in 1988. Moen planted the Snowgrass vineyard in 2000 with Cabernet Franc, Lemberger, Sangiovese, and Syrah.
All grapes at Snowgrass are grown using sustainable methods. Manure from chickens, goats and sheep is used for compost and fertilizer, and sheep also mow the grass in the vineyard in the spring and fall.
Snowgrass plans to specialize in the production of aromatic, dry rosés, and also will make a red table wine, Roaring Creek Red, as well as Syrah, Sangiovese, and a meritage-style Bordeaux blend. Visitors are welcome for tours and tastings by appointment only.
