Hightower Cellars Wine Shop
Hightower Cellar’s grapes are handpicked and handsorted to ensure the use of only the best grapes from some of the best vineyards in dry eastern Washington State. The grapes are crushed into small one and one-half ton, open-top fermentors no taller than they are wide to extract greater color and flavor by having more juice in contact with the grape skins. After gently pressing the wine from the skins, the wine is aged in small oak barrels for eighteen to twenty months. The wines are gravity-racked off their lees with a siphon during the barrel aging process and pumped only during bottling.
