Estate Vineyards / AVA
Jacob plants his row in 1996.
Ken inspects his row in 2006.
The first harvest was 1998, and Ken and Virginia traveled to California to help with that first harvest and each year since then. Jim makes sure the best grapes are saved for Bloom Vineyards Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
A NEW VINEYARD IS PLANTED FOR BLOOMS
Ken and Virginia have spent time each summer and fall visiting vineyards in Eastern Washington walking the rows tasting grapes and talking to growers to find the best grapes to make their Washington wines.
The main source of grapes is in the Rattlesnake Hills region of the Yakima Valley, where the Syrah and Viognier from Julie Bosma are grown. Snipes Mountain is the source for Semillon, and in the Columbia Valley, Blooms get Malbec and Petite Verdot from the Dills at Kalibri Vineyards. Julie Bosma has planted a new section of vineyard exclusively for Blooms Winery, and we are anxiously awaiting our first harvest of the new crop!
Whidbey Island grown grapes, when available are from Comfort Vineyards on Wilkenson Rd. in Langley
And of course, we do grow our own rhubarb for that fabulous Ambrosia wine that folks love so much!
