The most celebrated red-wine vineyard in
Washington, Red Willow lies in the remote
northwestern corner of the Yakima Valley
Appellation. Mt. Adams' 1200-foot peak and the
Cascade foothills rise to the west. There are no other
vineyards within 20 miles. It is a fairly warm site
(mid-region 2 on the old UC Davis scale). At high
elevations, 1100 to 1300 feet, Red Willow has complex
soil formations and steep hillsides. Owner Mike Sauer
has developed the 120 acres of land with sensitivity and
respect for soil and slope. The basic land-form is a
peninsula of land jutting out from the south-facing
Ahtanum Ridge. The south slope of this peninsula
formation drops down into a saddle that runs southward
to rise upwards to a small hill. There are east, west, and
south-facing vineyards and these are divided into 40
small blocks of great red varieties, including seven terroirs
of Syrah. All these form a rich blending palette for
Columbia's winemaker David Lake.
