The presence of Lake Chelan – the largest natural lake in the state – moderates weather extremes in summer and winter, giving the grapes a chance to develop evenly, with a near-ideal balance of sugars and acidity. A higher elevation, and a distinctively coarse, sandy sediment from its glacier origins, further sets Chelan apart from the other Washington AVAs. With its 1250 to 1600-foot elevation along the south shore of Lake Chelan, our Clos CheValle vineyard combines lake effect temperature controls, glacial till soil, and decade old vines to create outstanding Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, as well as the high-quality Riesling, Viognier, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and also the cool-weather Syrah Rocky Pond is known for. Clos CheValle is LIVE Certified assuring you that our wines meet the highest level of environmental responsibility and sustainability. Our Clos CheValle Vineyard grows Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Menunier, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Syrah and Viognier. • Located on the South shore of Lake Chelan • Elevation: 1,250 – 1,600 feet • 50 total acres
