White Heron Cellars is located in the middle of our vineyard property in the ghost town of Trinidad, between Quincy and Wenatchee, above the Columbia River in Washington State.

The winery started making wine in 1986 with a Washington State Pinot Noir. In the spring of 1988, White Heron released the 1986 Pinot Noir and the 1987 Dry Riesling. Subsequent vintages of these wines have been released and in 1990 White Heron added the 1988 Chantepierre - a meritage type blend of Cabernet Savignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Current vintages are made with grapes from our own vineyards and from selected Columbia Valley growers. Each wine is unique in style and creates its own niche in the wine world.

The vineyard and winery site overlooks the Columbia River, Crescent Bar Resort, and the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Deep well-drained soils, southern slopes, excellent air drainage, and a ring of hills surrounding the site, make for an exceptional vineyard location. The first vines were planted in 1991. Varieties grown include Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir, Gamy, Syrah, Rousanne and Viognier.

In the long term, White Heron will concentrate on Red Wines. The production of Bordeaux varieties and Syrah will be the primary focus. Many of these varieties are unusual and not commonly available in Washington State. It has been fun to watch these varieties mature in the vineyard and then in the bottle.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

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

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
