Five friends with a penchant for wine-making founded V du V in 2003. Two remain. Their busy hands are stained purple throughout the fall harvest season as grapes are gathered from family-owned Columbia Valley vineyards, then fermented in-house using small batch wine-making processes. Well-balanced, hand-made wines are the result, each exhibiting the rustic qualities of the rich volcanic soils of their native terroir.
“Rustic” also describes the 1940’s tire shop the same busy hands transformed into their eclectic winery and tasting room, where friends and family gather often to share in the labor of love that is wine-making. The tasting room offers a warm mix of reclaimed redwood, fir, pine and rusted barn metal as a backdrop for its month-long art showings by local artists. Music fills the winery on the first Friday of each month, as the winery's house band, Crushpad, plays its eclectic collection of Blues and Americana music.
With over 11 varietals currently aging in their barrel room, V du V has an extensive palette with which to blend its wines, which draw from old-world Bordeaux, Burgundian and Rhone influences, yet strive to show the intrinsic qualities of fruit sourced from the Columbia Valley and Wahluke Slope AVA's.
