Our Wines

  • Rara Avis Grenache

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Grenache is relatively rare in Washington; therefore we chose the name "Rara Avis" (rare bird in latin). Grenache tends to be lighter in body and color and has lower acidity. We blend in a healthy dose of Mourvedre to the Rara Avis to add acidity, density, and weight. Mourvedre also adds a rustic note. We debate every year whether or not to blend Syrah into the Grenache. A few percentage points of Syrah deepens the hue.

  • Jongleur Petit Verdot

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • A Jongleur is a medieval wanderer, entertainer, and juggler. We borrowed the term Jongleur as a metaphor for our lifestyle as small business owners, winemakers, and parents of three daughters. Dionysus Vineyard is a unique site for Petit Verdot. Traditionally Petit Verdot is a slow to ripen, highly acidic wine that is used for blending into Bordeaux Blends. Dionysus╩╝ terroir of a steep Southwest facing slope above the Columbia River allows the vineyard to ripen faster and produce wine with greater richness and intensity. This terroir allows us to produce a 100% Petit Verdot.
