White Salmon Vineyard is located in Underwood, WA at an elevation of 550 feet. Four distinct soils have been planted and trellised to create the best grapes for their particular wine. The vineyard was conceived and is cultivated to produce fine wine.

Our Pinot Noir is a combination of Dijon clones with 115 as the most planted. The Pinot Noir field is a light sandy loam filled with small to large volcanic rocks. Vines are planted 1.33 meters apart and 2 meters across the row. They are trained on a VSP system. Vines have been hedged and leaves pulled from the east side.

Our Chardonnay is planted on Dijon clones and wood from Celilo Vineyard - a McAndrew selection that has matured early and produced ultra premium Chardonnay from Underwood Mountain. The Chardonnay field is not as light or rocky as the Pinot Noir field. While still a sandy loam, there is some clay mixed in. This clay supports a bigger vine. The vines are planted 1.5 meters apart and are 2.5 meters across the row. A trellis to support a Scott Henry system is in place. Less than half of the vines fill the trellis, while most are on a VSP with one fruiting zone.

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.

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
