Located on the Columbia River, along the Southern border of Washington state, Alder Ridge has been regarded as one of the finest vineyard sites in the entire state. Natural wind and air drainage protects the vines from the harsh weather conditions, both in the summer and winter. We source the grapes for our Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah and Grenache from Alder Ridge Vineyard.
The vineyard is located in the warm, well-drained Rattlesnake Mountain in Yakima Valley near Benton City, WA. The soil is Kootenay silt loam 2-8% slope and starbuck 5-15% slope. Established in 1996, the vinyard is 109 aces with slope mostly South and Southeast. We source our Cabernet Franc, Petit Sirah, Malbec and Viognier from this vineyard.
