We have crafted a Cabernet Sauvignon every year since our inception in 1998, and it is most definitely a flagship wine for us. With each unique vintage, winemaker Jean-François Pellet utilizes a blend of Bordeaux varietals, styled to highlight the beauty and intricacy imparted by our area’s Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.
1999 marked the first production of our estate Merlot. With each vintage since, we are continually awed by the delicate intricacies our estate vineyards consistently bestow upon this beautiful Bordeaux varietal.
After producing only red Bordeaux varietals for over 15 years, we are proud to introduce you to the first white wine ever to be offered by Pepper Bridge Winery. In honor of old-world tradition while embracing new world style, Winemaker Jean-François Pellet chooses to ferment this wine in oak and concrete egg.
The word ‘trine’ (it rhymes with ‘wine’) is defined as a close group of three, and this wine pays homage to the families of Pepper Bridge: the McKibbens, the Murphys, and Pellets. As with our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Trine showcases the best of our Walla Walla Valley estate vineyards. However, it allows Winemaker Jean-François Pellet more freedom of expression since it is a creative blend rather than a varietal-based wine. Each vintage will contain a unique combination of Bordeaux’s traditional five red grapes.
Just ten miles south of Pepper Bridge Winery on the edge of the Walla Walla Valley Appellation, you’ll find Seven Hills Vineyard. The original couple dozen acres of plantings date back to 1981. Now the vineyard boasts more than a few hundred planted acres of premium wine grapes. Wine & Spirits Magazine profiled it in its Fall 2004 issue as one of the ten great vineyards of the world. This wine is crafted exclusively for our Wine Club members to highlight this special estate vineyard. It is a blend that changes every year but is always 100% Seven Hills Vineyard fruit.
