Red Mountain’s south facing slope offers great exposure for producing some of Washington’s premium grapes. Our reserve line of Barbera comes from Red Mountain. Unique in its heat intensity, Red Mountain produces Barbera like no other Barbera found yet in Washington State.
We have sourced Barbera from Vinagium vineyards our first two vintages and will for the foreseeable future. Their vineyard manager Damon La Londe has a magical touch with grapes. His attention to detail only adds to creating a perfect vintage. The only thing missing is the red carpet between rows.
“Red Heaven” is the main vineyard site for Vinagium. It sits on a gentle slope between Hedges Family Estate and Col Solare Winery. The style of wine produced from Red Heaven are bold with fruit and body, enfolded in silky tannins. The old saying, fist in a velvet glove comes to mind. Red Heaven offers sweeping views of the Columbia Valley, Horse Heaven Hills and Rattlesnake Mountain. On clear days, Mt. Adams can be viewed from our block. Wines produced from Red Heaven Vineyard: 2009 Barbera, 2010 Barbera
