About Sagelands Vineyard:

The “Four Corners” of Washington’s Columbia Valley—Wahluke Slope, Horse Heaven Hills, Rattlesnake Hills and Walla Walla Valley—have emerged in recent years as superb growing regions for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Developing strong relationships with local growers and supervising the cultivation of its vineyard sources assures Sagelands Vineyard an outstanding palette of top quality grapes with which to create wines of impressive quality and value.

Each vineyard lot has a character and personality all its own. Following crush, fermentation and aging in small oak barrels, Sagelands Vineyard’s winemaker brings these lots together in artful blends that surpass their individual components in richness, complexity and balance.

Situated at the western gateway to Yakima Valley’s wine country, the Sagelands Vineyard tasting room presents both exciting wines and inspiring views of the Valley and Mt. Adams.
