Our story begins in 2012 with our first commercial
harvest while simultaneously beginning restoration of
our 100+ year old barn which now serves as our production
facility and tasting room. Our winemaker, Jeff Crowder
completed his formal education in 2014 after graduating
from Washington State University's Enology Program and
validating his passion for crafting premium artisan
Location was also on our side... With over 300 "sunny"
days a year, our unique grape growing climate is influenced
by the lake itself. Known as "lake effect", Lake Chelan
moderates temperatures throughout the growing season
and helps to protect against frost damage by radiating
heat absorbed during the summer in the cooler months
of fall and winter. This has an effect of extending
the "hang time" of the fruit on the vine which allows
sugars and acids in the grape to stay in balance. With
the recent approval of the Lake Chelan American Viticultural
Area (AVA), and the growing success of our thriving
wine valley, pursuing our dream of crafting wine in
Lake Chelan just made sense.
As we continue to produce premium artisan wines,
our family is excited for what the future holds. We
have ambitions of growing our brand while preserving
our traditional, hand-crafted approach of producing
award-winning wines that age well. Our highly acclaimed
wines are best enjoyed with good food and good company.
Our family looks forward to sharing them with you.
