Yes, we do grow wine grapes (Vitis Vinifera) on Whidbey Island! No, it doesn't rain all the time (just don't tell anyone).

In fact the growing season is quite dry, our northern latitude gives us long summer days with cool nights, our proximity to water gives us mild winters, creating unique conditions for grapegrowing. We plant varieties from the cooler parts of Europe—France's Loire valley and Alsace, Germany and eastern Europe.

The resultant wines are delicate, crisp and fragrant; outstanding accompaniments to seafood.

At the moment, all of our island grown varieties are white, but we are actively involved in research efforts to evaluate new varieties for our climate, among them, several very promising reds.

Whidbey Island is within Puget Sound American Viticultural Area (appellation) which was approved by the federal government in 1995.

We also produce almost half of our wines from grapes grown in selected vineyards in eastern Washington. Charlie and Connie Crawford of Crawford Vineyards in Prosser have been supplying us with exceptional grapes since 1989 and we supplement that with small lots from other sites in the Yakima Valley.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

  Best Books of the Year

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
