ABOUT THE VINEYARDS: 
Boushey Vineyards: “Owned by Richard and Luanne Boushey, are Boushey Vineyards are located in the Yakima Valley five miles north of the town of Grandview on the southern slopes of the Rattlesnake Mountains.

The vineyards are planted on several sites within a two-mile radius; generally south-facing slopes varying from 700 to 1200 ft. elevation. The first blocks of grapes were planted in 1980 and the youngest was recently planted in 2003.”

Rosebud Ranch: “Our old block sémillon hails from the 1982 knarled plantings at Rosebud Ranches on the Wahluke Slope. Silt-sand soils and warm days coax the sémillon vines to produce unctuous fruit.”*

Lonesome Springs Ranch: “We are grateful that this forward thinking Yakima Valley vineyard provides us with aromatic muscadelle. It perfectly rounds out the florals in our white blend.”*
