Arbor Crest Vineyard Sources

 

Bacchus, Dionysus & Sagemoor Vineyards | Columbia Valley

Farmed by Kent Waliser and Derek Way.   These three vineyards, managed by Sagemoor Farms, are located in Pasco along the Columbia River.  They not only possess some of the oldest vines in Washington State, but they feature beautiful soils, sandy loam, good temperatures, and excellent grape acidity which is maintained by the vineyards’ close proximities to the river.
Bacchus Varietals:  Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
Dionysus Varietals:  Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, White Riesling
Sagemoor Varietals:  Syrah

Conner Lee Vineyard | Columbia Valley

Farmed by Tom Thorsen and Jerry Bookwalter.   The Conner Lee Vineyard is located just outside of Othello where the prime location, deep sandy soils, and cooler temperatures allow the grapes to have a long hang-time which yields very concentrated flavors.
Conner Lee Varietals:  Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Stillwater Creek Vineyard | Columbia Valley

Stillwater Creek Vineyard is a 235-acre site on the Royal Slope of the Frenchman Hills.  Planted in 2000 on a steep, south-facing slope with one of the most diverse clone selections in Washington state, Stillwater Creek quickly has earned a reputation as one of the Columbia Valley’s top vineyards. The site’s fractured rock and extreme southern exposure are ideal for reds, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Farmed by Ed Kelly, it is best known for its innovative vineyard management and unique selection of premium varietal clones.
Stillwater Creek Varietals: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Klipsun Vineyard | Red Mountain

Farmed by Patricia Gelles.  A highly acclaimed vineyard located in Benton City, Klipsun Vineyard is a very warm site, but produces good acidy due to the elevation, as well as excellent balance and flavors.
Klipsun Varietals: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Wahluke Slope Vineyard | Wahluke Slope

Farmed by the Milbrandt Brothers, the Wahluke Slope Vineyard is located in the Wahluke Slope AVA, in between Mattawa and Othello and directly south of the Stillwater Creek Vineyard. It was planted in 1980 and has over 150 acres of mostly red fruit such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese and Syrah. The unique soils, combined with a dry, warm climate have indeed made Wahluke Slope one of the best places in the state for wine grapes.
Wahluke Slope Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese
