Reviews and Ratings

Canoe Ridge Vineyard has given "The Expedition" title to its wines, playing off the ridgetop site named by Lewis and Clark after they noted that it looked like an overturned canoe. The Expedition (2014) Merlot is made from wine grapes sourced from the Horse Heaven Hills. The wine was awarded gold at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
