The first thing we noticed about this land was the rocks--large basalt cobblestones. The stones lay as proof of Mother Nature's erosion of the nearby Blue Mountains. The soil is made of coarse-grain alluvial sediments consisting mainly of these basalt cobblestones. This soil, similar to the soils of France's famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape, yields wines of great struture and individuality.
Currently, this land is planted to apples and cherries. We feel that this soil and microclimate are ideal for Syrah. But, we like to play. In addition to Syrah, we will also look to plant Viognier, Roussanne, and Grenache.
There are many good wines in the marketplace today. However, they are generally cookie-cutter, by-the-numbers type that offer nothing special. The key to our winery's success is our utmost dedication to producing the highest quality wines that highlight the unique soil and varietal characteristics of Washington Syrahs. Rasa Vineyards' Syrahs are produced from estate grown Syrah grapes and those sourced from select quality conscious growers from the various Washington AVAs.
