Production: 500-1000 cases/year
Vineyards: 11 acres
Linc Wolverton, while studying in Dijon France, noted the similarity in climate and terrain with his native WA. Upon return, he carefully analyzed and determined just the right spot for growing his winegrapes in Western WA, and purchased the land and planted 11 acres in 1971. Their first commercial release was in 1976 and was made from their grapes by Mike Wallace. Mike also made their 1977 release. The 1980 release was made (again from Salishan's grapes) by Ponzi Winery (Oregon). There was no 1981 release. Since 1982, the winemaker has been Joan Wolverton.
Distributed from the winery and a few Seattle wine stores.
