Ranges from shallow to very deep, silt loams and sand; moderate fertility.
Moderate head accumulation with summer and winter temperature moderation by the Columbia River. Moderate vine vigor helps delay harvest even later. Early bud break and late harvest provide long hang time for clusters and uniform ripening.

As its name suggests, Horse Heaven Vineyard is located in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA adjacent to the Columbia River. The vineyards’ quick draining soil is deposited on a rocky volcanic base of fractured basalt. Irrigation management is an important part of the quality of the fruit harvested here. The area’s low annual rainfall and the vineyards’ free draining soil allow us to control water to the vine to keep the grapevines from becoming overly aggressive. The culmination is graceful, seamless wines perfect for enjoying with friends.
