Using the current facilities and included equipment at its full capacity, an operator could potentially produce 25,000+ cases of wine annually.

Soils on the property are made up of 100% Warden Silt Loam with gentle 2% to 15% slopes across the property.

With spectacular sunset views of both Mt Adams and Mt Rainier, this vineyard and winery is located close to several full service cities and within a popular wine corridor. A distinguishing feature of the Rattlesnake Hills AVA is its elevation relative to the surrounding area. The appellation’s heightened elevation lessens the risk of Spring and Fall frosts and Winter temperatures are typically warmer than other local growing regions, limiting the danger of hard freezes. This AVA is known for growing exceptional grapes that produce high quality wines available at reasonable prices.
