A pioneer of Washington Wine Country, John J. Walker, our founder and a visionary, envisioned that Yakima Valley would produce the fruit that would build wines of premium caliber. His wish, to set great wines on everyone’s table. Hence, the reason he purchased our vineyards, Kestrel View Estate, in 1995. His vision came to further fruition when we opened our winery in early 1999 on three acres in the Prosser Wine and Food Park. Our flagship winery and production facility is 15,000 square feet, which includes a 13,500 square foot cellar, tank, warehouse and barrel area as well as a 1,500 square foot tasting room, gift shop and office. Great wine can only come from great fruit, that coupled with a state-of-the-art production facility means we have the perfect opportunity to make amazing wines. We opened our doors as a 3,000 case winery and are now at approximately 35,000 cases.
