A brief history
A 8,000 Sqft. Solid log facility, located on the south end of Walla Walla, situated on the Owners (the Orchards) Estate, surrounded by Vineyards, pond, and 360 degree views of the Blue Mountains and the Walla Walla Valley. Winemaker Troy Ledwick, with one goal and mission, is crafting the biggest, and most balanced "Estate" red varietals, starting with the "Black Wine" ( Malbec). A must have if available. These wines are best when "Decanted" and enjoyed with food, and intended for the wine "Enthusiast" and or "Collector".
In the summer of 06, a Whitman College professor injected into our vineyards a Temperature recording device that collected the daily temperatures for the past year. The "old" professor has recently shared with us his findings, and they are that his research shows that our temperatures and elevation is the most similar to that region in France, know as the "Cohors" region. This region is best know for, and is producing some of the highest quality Malbec. This must explain why our Estate Malbec is such a surprise and hit.
