The Wallace family, came from the Seattle area ( about 200 miles west of Prosser), in 1972 and planted a pioneering 23 acre vineyard 6 miles north of Prosser on the Roza Irrigation District.
The elder statesman, and resident curmudgeon of the family is Jerry Wallace, a former Detective Lieutenant with the Seattle PD. Son, Mike Wallace, is winemaker. Mike was a medical researcher and did graduate work at U.C.. Davis , in the Department of Viticulture and Enology.
Mike, likes to produce small lots of boldly flavored wines, specializing in wine types and styles that tend to be out of the current mainstream of the US wine scene- a dry Gewurztraminer, heavy duty, ageable reds, ports, sherries, other dessert and late harvest wine styles. Hinzerling has a number of wine and food related events at the winery each year.
