The Reynvaan family (Mike, Gale, Amanda, Angela and Matt) produce Rhône-style red and white wines from their two vineyard properties in the Walla Walla Valley, only from varietals that they love and farm themselves. From the first vintage in 2007, the wines have been remarkable with a consistent complexity, depth of flavour, finish and distinctive terroir.
Almost everything is done by hand, from planting each vine in the vineyards, trellising, pruning, dropping fruit and then picking and sorting the berries at harvest. Their Syrah is up there with the very best examples of this varietal in the world.

A large temperature shift from day to night retaining acidity in the fruit.
Deep silty loam and clay and rocks!
Syrah from the most unique terroir in the United States.
