Washington State Vineyard

Longwinds Vineyard was planted in 2014 under the guidance of Vineyard Manager Dick Boushey. A past “Grower of the Year” honoree by both the Washington Association of Wine Grape Growers and the Washington State Grape Society, Dick also worked closely with the Duckhorn Portfolio team to select the site, which is situated just above Col Solare (the vineyard partnership between Tuscany’s Marchesi Antinori and Washington’s Ste. Michelle Wine Estates).

Longwinds features 13.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and 4.5 acres of Merlot, with the Cabernet grown in the rockier, exposed soils at the top of the vineyard, and the Merlot grown near the bottom, where the soils have higher water-holding capacity. As an additional benefit of the region’s thin, pest-free soils, all of the vines at Longwinds Vineyard are own-rooted.

Longwinds Vineyard (2013) Located near the top of Red Mountain, Longwinds Estate Vineyard is situated above the frost zone and features gently rolling slopes and an ideal southwest exposure. The vineyard’s thin, windblown Warden series sandy loam soils are above a basalt layer deep enough to allow the vines to fully take root. Because the soils are so thin, the irrigation can be tailored to regulate growth, which in turn yields perfectly ripe and beautifully concentrated fruit. At the same time, with diurnal swings of 40+˚, the grapes preserve excellent natural acidity.
