Badger Mountain Vineyard was founded by Bill and Greg Powers in 1982; the transition to organic viticulture began in 1988. Since that time we have not used chemical herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or synthetic fertilizers in our vineyard. We have relied on only organically approved and naturally occurring substances for all vineyard applications. In 1990, Badger Mountain Vineyard became the first vineyard to be Certified Organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture. The production of premium fruit is virtually assured by advantageous use of our assets: favorable location, climate, volcanic soil, and organic techniques.
