ABOUT THE PRODUCER: 
JB Neufeld:
The winery was created by the husband-and-wife team, Justin and Brooke Neufeld. Justin produced its first vintage in 2008. The winery is the only of its kind in Washington, focusing exclusively on Cabernet Sauvignon within the Yakima Valley AVA. The goal of the brand is to not only showcase the diversity of the terroir found in the valley through its vineyard-designate bottlings but to use that diversity to build a more complex and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon by blending sites as well.

The Yakima Valley AVA has the most diverse terroir of all the AVAs in Washington.  All the vineyards are located on south-facing slopes created by a series of ridges that are oriented West to East, which is a geological anomaly unique to eastern Washington.  

JB Neufeld's focus is to preserve not only the qualities of the wine but also the place and time from which they were made. They aim to build a Cabernet Sauvignon that possesses multiple layers of complexity that reveal themselves as the wine opens up in the glass. JB Neufeld achieves this by having a winemaking style that is dedicated, thoughtful, and precise to the terroir of their valley.

ABOUT THE VINEYARDS:
Yakima Valley is one of Washington’s most diverse growing regions. It also is the largest sub-appellation of the Columbia Valley, both in total size and planted acreage, with the valley home to over one-quarter of Washington’s total grapevine acreage. Like almost all of eastern Washington’s other growing regions, Yakima Valley soils are strongly influenced by the Missoula Floods, which were a series of dramatic cataclysms in prehistoric times. Moderate to deep silt-loam is layered over gravel or directly onto basalt bedrock. This foundation creates well-drained soils that are ideal for irrigated viticulture. Red Mountain was an island during Ice Age flooding. This tremendous natural force scoured the land, leaving only a barren basalt moonscape. Prevailing winds from the southeast deposited super-fine granite-based silt and dust particles, called sandy loess (pronounced “less”), on top of the rock. The resulting eolian soils are fine-grained, well-drained, and perfect for growing grapes with minimal disease and pest pressure.

Two Blonde Vineyard:
Red Mountain: Red Mountain is located in Zillah Washington, just outside of Yakima. The soils are a complex mix of Harwood - Burke - Wiehl series. They are silty loams formed in a silty loess eolian mantle over a lime-silica-cemented durpan.

Dineen Vineyard and Artz Vineyard:
Red Mountain: situated in the Yakima Valley AVA, just north of the town of Zillah. It’s a unique hill-top area that is especially well suited for growing premium wine grapes owing to the silt-loam soils and sunny, south-facing aspect. The site also offers far-reaching views of the valley, and Mount Adams and Mount Rainier in the distance.

Red Willow Vineyard:
The furthest western vineyard within the Yakima Valley AVA. Made up of four distinctive blocks, the vineyard supplies fruit to over 20 wineries across Washington and Oregon. Founded in 1971 Red Willow is one of the oldest vineyards in Washington State. Our vines are grown on steep hillsides, with unique formations of soils unlike any other. the valley gradually rises putting it between 1100-1300 ft. elevation. A gentle south-east facing slope flows throughout most of the 60 acre block. Soils are classified as a Warden sandy loam.
