Ferguson Vineyard, named in honor of our founders Jean and Baker Ferguson, is a 42-acre Estate vineyard exclusive to L’Ecole. The vineyard location is a stunning, high elevation site planted on a ridge of ancient lava flows overlooking a panoramic view of the Walla Walla Valley. Approximately 30 acres have been planted so far. The vineyard was planted utilizing biologically diverse sustainable practices and is Certified Sustainable and Certified Salmon-Safe. This unique site, comprised of thin loess soil overlying fractured basalt, produces wines with bold, dark fruit, espresso, and tobacco notes, high natural acidity, rich texture, and excellent structure from the basalt derived minerality.
