Champoeg Vineyard, or “La Butte” as it was named by the early settlers, was first planted to vinifera by the Mathiot Family in 1858. By 1880, the surrounding area of Butteville was referred to by the Farm census as the wine capital of the Oregon Territory. Today, the vineyard is home to roughly 22 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Riesling terraced on a steep southeast facing slope.
A rich full mouthfeel of sweetness hits the palate up front followed swiftly by the balance of bright, refreshing acidity. Serve our newest release alongside a spicy curry or Lamb Vindaloo. Come by the tasting room now through the end of November to taste our newest release.
Tucked just behind Hedges Winery halfway up Sunset Road in the famed Red Mountain AVA, you’ll find a 46-acre vineyard planted to mostly Bordeaux, Spanish and Rhônevarietals. Red Heaven Vineyard, along with the likes of Force Majeure and other Red Mountain visionaries, had the forethought to plant Rhône varietals on the hottest AVA in Eastern Washington.
For as wonderful and harmonious as these three varietals are blended together, they could not be more different on the vine. Syrah, the dark blending beauty oozing with blue and black fruits is one of the earliest ripening vinifera in our stable. Grenache, the lesser known of the three, takes center stage in this GSM with racy red raspberry and a rustic spice that needs every degree day Red Mountain can give to ripen fully. Mourvédre carries with it a candied red fruit matched with gamey, wild characters that accentuate the dusty, earthy terroir of this exceptional AVA.
The intensely rich mouthfeel offers flavors of ripe raspberry, tea leaf and white pepper backed by a soft, rounded mouthfeel common in Rhône style blends. Come by the tasting room now through the end of November to taste our newest release.
Sourced from the East Chapel and Bluff Blocks of the famed Red Willow Vineyard in the western Yakima Valley, this Sangiovese is considered one of the oldest plantings of its kind in Washington State. Built for food or longevity, the massive tannin structure lingers far beyond the first sip, gripping and pulling at every last protein your tongue has to offer.
Flavors from the entry to midpalate are deep and intense, with a combination of sweet dark cherries, dried rose petals and the signature Red Willow minerality. Built for food or longevity, the massive tannin structure lingers far beyond the first sip, gripping and pulling at every last protein your tongue has to offer. Pair with Parmesan cheese, braised short ribs or a cool cellar until 2023. Come by the tasting room now through the end of November to taste our newest release.
Marie Dorion, a Native American of the Iowa Tribe, was the only female member of an 1811-12 overland expedition, financed by John Jacob Astor, to establish a fur trading post at the mouth of the Columbia River—just six years after Sacagawea made her trek. Marie and her two young children survived a 40-man massacre and overwintered alone in the wilderness in 1814. In 1841, Marie settled on a farm on the French Prairie, in the same area Lady Hill calls home. Hers is a harrowing story of strength and resilience and we pay homage by labeling our Cuvée Marie Dorion in her name under the Lady Hill brand.
Our newest release in our Pioneer Series is equal combination of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and showcases hues of dark plum and royal ruby into crimson around the rim. The lush mouthfeel is weighted with blackberry liquor, currants and a spicy leather. The finish is all Red Mountain, with an intense tannin structure built for long term age ability or a juicy T-bone steak. Come by the tasting room now through the end of November to taste our newest release.
