The gentle, south-slope of the Columbia River produces graceful, seamless wines.
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.
