Stillwater Creek is Novelty Hill Winery’s estate vineyard and also supplies grapes to acclaimed Washington wineries.

Grape Varieties We Grow
- Cabernet Franc
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Grenache Noir
- Sauvignon Blanc
Planting began in 2000 following extensive consultation with top viticulturists who analyzed soils and historical weather patterns to determine optimal site design and clonal selection. The soil’s sandy to silty loam mixed with large amounts of tiny fractured basalt; its steep slope (22% in many parts of the vineyard); and average annual year heat units ranging from 2700+ - 3000+, make it an ideal location for growing premium grapes
In 2007, Stillwater Creek became the first Columbia Valley vineyard certified “Salmon Safe” for environmental practices that help protect water quality and habitat for wildlife and fish, particularly native Northwest salmon. The vineyard also grows grapes for a select group of Washington’s best vintners, including DeLille Cellars, Fidelitas and L’Ecole NÂ° 41, among others.
