Sean has always had a progressive approach and sense of adventure toward winemaking that has led him around the world. After earning a bachelor’s degree in microbiology from the University of Guelph in Ontario, he headed to Australia, where he balanced his work in winemaking with backpacking excursions along the coastal cities of Brisbane and Sydney. Today, Sean funnels his diverse background into a distinctive, contemporary winemaking style.
Estate Vineyards / AVA
Washington’s largest appellation, the Columbia Valley comprises more than 60 percent (17,000 acres) of the state's total vinifera grape plantings and provides all of the grapes for our blends. This high-desert region encompasses parts of three rivers – the Columbia, Snake and Yakima – as well as the Yakima Valley, Red Mountain, Wahluke Slope and Horse Heaven Hills appellations. Its volcanic, well-drained, sandy loam soils are low in nutrients, which stresses the vines and yields intensely concentrated flavors.
Established in 1983, Yakima Valley is Washington’s oldest appellation and is home to our Sunnyside winery. It lies within the larger Columbia Valley and includes 10,000 acres of wine grapes, roughly one-third the state’s total. Due to its cooler climate in some areas, we look to this region for a majority of our Chardonnay grapes. We also select many of our red grapes from this sub-AVA’s warmer mesoclimates for added layers of complexity.
HORSE HEAVEN HILLS
Located in southeastern Washington, this Columbia Valley sub-region is named for the wild mustangs that used to roam its hills. Today, it has over 6,000 acres of wine grapes, many on steep, south-facing slopes rising up to 1,800 feet. This region provides us with ripe, rich grapes for our Columbia Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec.
Established in 2006, Wahluke Slope has some of the warmest temperatures and lowest annual precipitation levels in the state. This combination of factors creates a vibrant color and intense flavors in our wines, especially our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Located at the easternmost tip of the Yakima Valley at a sharp bend of the Yakima River, Red Mountain encompasses approximately 4,000 acres. One of the warmest regions in Washington, Red Mountain offers exceptionally bold red grapes for our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as many of our limited production wines.
