The 2022 growing season began with below average temperatures and above normal precipitation across the Walla Walla Valley. The cold start resulted in fewer growing days for the spring and early summer overall, but the extra rainfall and mountain snowpack prepared the area for multiple triple-digit days beginning in July. The heat contributed to optimal fruit set and a slightly larger crop. By September and October, cooler temperatures helped the grapes to ripen slowly, developing a perfect balance between flavor and sugar, acid and tannin.

Director of Winemaking Jean-François Pellet says, “The long growing season and relatively short harvest turned out to be absolutely idyllic for producing wines that are well-balanced with great fruit expression.”


Within all of our vineyards we dedicate ourselves to being stewards of the land and leaders in the practices of sustainable agriculture.
