Our winery dream began on a beautiful spring day in 2006. We shared a passion for wine and spent much of our free time visiting wineries. We were at a winery, standing on their balcony drinking some superb Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, looking over the vineyards and we experienced a perfect moment of tranquility and peace. We turned to each other at the same time and said, “Let’s do this!” Our dream was born.
The first and most important step to realizing our dream was to find a world class winemaker. For years our favorite wines were the ones produced by Charlie Hoppes. Therefore, it made sense to contact Charlie and present our proposal to him. We were fortunate that Charlie agreed to become our winemaker.
